The Gold S31 has key features like LPDDR3 DRAM and offers a lot of performance for the price. It’s a 2.5-inch drive that connects over SATA III and comes in sizes ranging from 250GB to 1TB (the 500GB version is also on sale right now for $48.79, down from $60.99). The 1TB version we’re suggesting here has an LPDDR3 DRAM cache and scored sequential read / write speeds of 560 MBps / 525 MBps in our testing.
The Hynix Gold S31 also comes with free cloning and migration software, which our review praised as key pros alongside its performance and long five-year warranty. With a new generation of games around the corner, it’s not a bad idea to stock up on some extra storage space while it’s cheap.
