The 5 Largest SSDs Worth Buying in 2022

Are you looking for a solid state drive capable of running as an unparalleled storage solution?

Perhaps you want to build a server, premium HTPC, or even finally get your whole Steam library installed at once!

Whatever the goal, there are some incredible offerings available in the current market.

Today’s feature is here to guide you through the largest solid-state drives worth buying for 2.5-inch, M.2 & external needs.

In other words, we’re not here to recommend a 100TB SSD with no actual availability/realistic price tag, but the largest drives designed for mainstream consumption (with decent availability and great value).

Quick word on where to buy large SSDs

Before we start, it’s worth touching on the problem with fake SSDs.

There are a fair few inauthentic listings out there that usually use smaller drives with data rewrites disguising the product as say, 8TB (when in reality, the drive will stop writing data very early, or simply not work).

You have to be fairly vigilant because some scammers will use a well-reviewed page to deceive people into thinking they’re buying a good product (e.g. a listing for a 1TB SSD with lots of good reviews is changed to a fake 8TB SSD page).

These fake drives are often more prevalent at larger sizes (particularly for external drives) because they lure buyers in with prices around 80-90% cheaper than our top picks.

Unfortunately, we’re here to say you won’t get a massive SSD that cheap for a long time, so be vigilant, keep to our recommendations if possible, and even when buying from these pages, make sure it is Amazon themselves shipping the product (or a reseller with 98%+ feedback).

If you want to stray to other picks, then we highly suggest sticking to reputable brands (Samsung, Corsair, etc.).
