Deal | WD Black SN770 1TB SSD receives 50% discount and hits lowest price ever on Amazon
Relatively quick PCIe 4.0 SSDs with 1TB of storage capacity have been available for less than US$80 for quite some time, but some affordable drives in this lower price range had to make certain compromises in order to hit their budget-friendly price point. This also applies to the WD Black SN770 SSD, which has now fallen below the US$70 threshold.
Specifically, Amazon is currently selling the 1TB version of the WD Black SN770 SSD, which can reach sequential read speeds of up to 5,150 MB/s, for just US$64.99 including free shipping. Please make sure to select Amazon as the seller, as the link below may default to a more expensive third-party seller who can offer a faster delivery than the e-commerce giant itself. According to Camel's accurate price tracker, this deal offers the lowest price ever for the WD Black SN770 1TB SSD.
In contrast to more expensive SSDs, such as the popular Samsung 980 Pro, the WD Black SN770 does not sport a superfast DRAM and therefore doesn't hit the highest PCIe 4.0 speeds. Nevertheless, the storage module has sequential write speeds of up to 4,900 MB/s, which means that it is well-suited as a secondary drive for storage expansion purposes in desktop PCs and laptops. However, this 1TB SSD may be a bit too slow to be used in Sony's PS5, but it still offers a quite intriguing price-performance ratio for users who don't want to pay more money for the last bit of extra performance.
