Deal | WD_BLACK SN850X 4 TB NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD 46% off on Amazon
Those looking for a high-performance PCIe 4.0 SSD with a generous capacity can grab the WD_BLACK SN850X now from Amazon for almost half the list price. Sadly, this NVMe SSD is far from cheap, since the list price of the 4 TB version is US$699.99. Fortunately, the 46% discount currently applied to the WDS400T2X0E model brings it down to a reasonable US$379.99.
While the 4 TB model mentioned above is available without a heatsink, adding a third-party one of the many currently available on the market can easily make it Sony PlayStation 5-ready. WD_BLACK SN850X features Game Mode 2.0, which promises to decrease in-game waiting times by using load prediction and adaptive thermal management. The sequential read speeds of this drive go up to 7,300 MB/s, while the sequential writes can hit 6,350 MB/s.
Introduced in early August, the WD_BLACK SN850X lineup already has 11,154 user reviews and 485 answered questions on Amazon. The excellent score of 4.8/5 comes after 91% perfect ratings and 5% 4/5 reviews. The breakdown by feature consists of six attributes, namely value for money (4.3), storage capacity (4.7), gaming performance and ease of installation (4.8 each), comfort (4.9), and tech support (a perfect score of 5/5).
