Deal | 2TB WD Black SN850 NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD heavily discounted on Amazon
Storage-hungry console gamers as well as laptop owners are often on the lookout for the next great deal on a very spacious solid-state drive. Even though many other gaming PC components, including AMD's latest addition to its lineup of Radeon graphics cards, remain in short supply due to the continuous global semiconductor shortage, Amazon has now started a noteworthy deal on a very quick 2TB SSD made by the established American storage manufacturer Western Digital.
Instead of the usual MSRP of almost US$400, the e-commerce behemoth currently offers the PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD WD Black SN850 with 2TB of capacity for an intriguingly discounted price of US$271. The WD Black SN850 can deliver sequential reading and writings speeds of up to 7,000MB/s and 5,300MB/s respectively, and should therefore work perfectly as a quick system drive in most modern laptops and notebooks with a PCIe 4.0 M.2 slot. But thanks to its backwards compatibility, this large 2TB solid-state drive is also compatible with older PCIe standards.
This SSD is further compatible with the PlayStation 5 and can serve as high-capacity storage expansion drive in Sony's latest gaming console. However, an additional heatsink should be attached to the drive in order to comply with Sony's PS5 SSD requirements. The WD Black SN850 is covered by a limited five year manufacturer warranty and has a life expectancy of 1,200 written terabytes. Prospective buyers can find the complete technical specifications on the official data sheet of the WD Black SN850 SSD.
