5 Memorial Day sales that might have slipped under your radar

Memorial Day weekend is a time for remembrance, family, friends — and some of the best sales of the year. Retailers everywhere are rushing to discount their wares as we head into a glorious holiday weekend. But with so many sales to be had, you’d be surprised about how many great deals get pushed out of the spotlight. With big savings on brand-name appliances, laptop computers, and clothing, there are quite a few lesser-known sales that you likely never would have heard of — until now.

If you’re looking for some extra savings on the things you need, the items you want, and the products you just can’t live without, take a look at some of our favorite weekend sales.

This is the SSD you need for your PS5 — and it’s on sale
Samsung 990 PRO SSD over a dark background.

When the PS5 first came out, expandable storage wasn't really supported. Sure, you could hook up an external hard drive to it, but you couldn't run any games off it, only use it for storage. Luckily, Sony has since added support for expanding the internal memory, which is great because the PS5 only comes with an 825GB internal storage capacity, and nearly a quarter of that is eaten up by the OS, so you're really only left with 667GB. Of course, only the highest-performing M.2 SSDs are supported, and one of the best is Samsung's 990 Pro. Even though it's usually quite expensive, you can get it for a discount from Samsung for just $99, rather than the usual $120.

Why you should buy the Samsung 990 PRO
So what sets the Samsung 990 Pro apart from other M.2 SSDs? Well, a lot of it comes down to the 8nm controller, which helps it direct the flow of data more efficiently, which ends up providing a rather large bump in read/write speeds. In fact, it's even optimized enough for Microsoft's Direct Storage tech, which essentially takes advantage of higher read/write speeds to load only small pieces of data at a time rather than huge chunks. It's the same sort of technology the PS5 uses to increase framerate performance and allow you to run at 4k and higher graphical settings since you aren't wasting a lot of performance with loading and storing data, such as far away objects in the game that don't need to be loaded in high resolution.
