Deal | WD Black SN850X 1TB SSD now discounted by 47%
The San Jose-based company Western Digital, or WD in short, is undoubtedly one of the most widely recognized brand names in the storage segment. But as with most major manufacturers, its quickest SSDs are usually quite expensive, which is why tech enthusiasts might want to take a look at a current deal for the lightning-fast WD Black SN850X.
In particular, Best Buy now sells the 1TB version of the WD Black SN850X for just US$95 including free shipping or store pickup, which is a notable US$85 or 47 percent discount in relation to the official sticker price of this PCIe 4.0 SSD. Furthermore, Camelcamelcamel's price tracker suggests that this deal also undercuts Amazon's lowest price ever for the 1TB WD Black SN850X, which has been sold for an average price of US$124 thus far.
In terms of performance, this ultra-fast NVMe SSD can reach sequential read speeds up to 7,300 MB/s, while sequential writing takes place at up to 5,300 MB/s. Therefore, the WD Black SN850X easily surpasses Sony's official SSD requirements for the PS5, but this storage module might actually be a bit overkill for that purpose and is better suited as a primary drive in high-end desktop PCs or laptops. Either way, this PCIe 4.0 SSD by Western Digital is an excellent all-around choice that should meet the expectations of even the most demanding buyers.
