With an all-time high price tag of US$699.99 in early August 2022, the WD Black SN850X PCIe SSD with 4 TB of storage space dropped to US$269.99 on Amazon in late July, this year. Now, it goes for US$299.99, which is roughly 30% less than the US$440 average (according to Camelcamelcamel, based on the last 32 price changes).

Widely regarded as one of the best NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSDs for gaming, the WD Black SN850X also comes in a version with heatsink for Sony PlayStation 5 consoles (the 2 TB version with model number WDS200T2XHE is currently 55% off and can be acquired for US$139.99). Now, the 4 TB model without heatsink is 57% off and can be purchased for US$299.99 instead of the US$699.99 Amazon list price. However, it should also be taken into account that this particular SSD hasn't been listed on Amazon for over US$500 since last December, but roughly US$300 instead of US$440 (Camelcamelcamel's average based on the last 32 price changes) is still a solid 32% discount.

The highlights of this high-speed SSD include sequential read speeds up to 7,300 MB/s, and excellent endurance value of 2400 TBW, as well as full support for Western Digital's Dashboard app. Sadly, this software companion is only available for Windows users. Its list of capabilities includes monitoring the drive's health, controlling the RGB lighting style, and can also detect games to turn on Game Mode 2.0 automatically.

In addition to the above, this drive also features Predictive Loading, Adaptive Thermal Management, and Overhead Balancing, as well as support for Microsoft DirectStorage in existing and future games.

On Amazon, the WD Black lineup shares 13,499 validated user reviews. Their result is an excellent global rating of 4.8/5 stars, with no less than 89% perfect scores and 7% ratings of 4/5 stars.
