One of Best Buy’s deals of the day features the WD Black SN850 1TB NVMe M.2 solid state drive down to a low price of just $154.99. This a great deal that’s just $5 above the drive’s all-time low and close to $75 off what Best Buy normally sells it for. Remember this is a temporary drop, though, and it will disappear at the end of the day. Grab it while you can.
You can also upgrade to the version with a heatsink, which is also on sale for a low of $189.99. That’s a great price for the heatsink version, which will give you much better thermal control. These SSDs can run hot, and some consider the heatsink vital to using it.
The SN850 drive greatly improves on previous generations with read and write speeds that will make loading some apps seem instant. Plus, the capacity is large enough for your favorite games and files.
The SN850 is an upgrade over the previous generation SN750, and today’s deal puts this 1TB drive within $40 of the much older drive. You’ll see some huge improvements, too, in read and write times and durability among other things.
The SN850 has read/write speeds of up to 7,000 MB/s and 5,300 MB/s respectively. That’s insanely fast when compared to even a regular SATA SSD that can top out around 560 MB/s. You’ll instantly notice the change if you’re upgrading from a non-M.2 NVMe drive. Your operating system will load faster, your games will install faster, and everything will feel better. With a 1TB drive you might even be able to squeeze Call of Duty in there somewhere.
You can use this drive with Windows 10 and 11, and it also works with the PlayStation 5 although there’s a separate heatsink you should buy in that case. There are plenty of great SSDs out there, and you have options if price is a consideration or you prefer a different brand. Be sure to find the one that works for you.
