Announced at CES 2020, the Gold P31 M.2 PCIe NVMe solid-state drive (SSD) from SK hynix is now available to buy in 500GB and 1TB sizes. The 1TB drive costs about $135, while the 500GB drive costs about $75.

SK hynix first stepped into the consumer SSD market in 2019 with its Gold S31 2.5-inch SATA SSD, a durable SSD with strong performance and a competitive price. Now, the Gold P31 aims to fill the needs of gamers, creators, and designers who require a high-performance, reliable, and competitively priced M.2 SSD that works with the PCIe (3.0) NVMe interface. It also happens to be the first 128-layer NAND flash-based SSD available on the consumer market, allowing for modest power consumption and strong performance.

The 500GB and 1TB options are expected to hit 3,500 MB/s sequential read speeds, while the 500GB model should hit 3,100 MB/s and the 1TB model 3,200 MB/s write speeds. The 1TB model also comes with a 750 TBW rating, which means you should be able to write up to 750 terabytes of data before seeing a failure. All SSDs come with a strong five-year warranty to help protect your purchase.

Every one of these awesome PC accessories will enhance your everyday experience — and none cost more than $30.

Whether you're a gamer or not, this is an absurdly good mouse for the price. It's ambidextrous, has a responsive sensor, a braided cable, tank-like build quality, and, yes, it has RGB lighting, though you can turn it off if that's not your thing.

These neat little speakers may only pack 2.4W of total power, but don't let that fool you. For something so small you get a well-rounded sound and a stylish design. And they only cost $16.

Use a wired mouse? You need a mouse bungee to keep your cable tidy and free of snags. You get no drag on the cable, and this one has subtle styling, a rust-resistant spring and a weighted base, all for $20.
