Deal: The 1TB WD Black SN850 PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSD is on sale for Black Friday
The time has come for storage hungry gamers and other tech enthusiasts to upgrade their machines for a reasonable price. While many PC components, including the new generation of DDR5 memory, remain in short supply due to the global microchip shortage, Best Buy in the US now offers a great Black Friday deal on a very quick 1TB SSD by Western Digital.
Instead of the usual MSRP of US$229, the well-known American retailer now offers the PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD WD Black SN850 with 1TB of capacity for an enticingly discounted price of US$150 for Black Friday. The WD Black SN850 can deliver speeds of up to 7,000MB/s when reading, and 5,300MB/s when writing. With that, this SSD should work perfectly as a quick system SSD in most modern systems with a PCIe 4.0 M.2 slot.
Furthermore, the WD Black SN850 solid state drive is compatible with the PlayStation 5, and can be used as storage expansion for Sony's latest gaming console. In this case, an additional heatsink should be attached to the WD Black SN850 in order to comply with Sony's PS5 SSD requirements. The WD Black SN850 comes with a limited five year warranty and has a life expectancy of 600 TBW. The complete technical specifications can be found on the official data sheet of the WD Black SN850.
