Prime Day Discounts NVMe M.2 SSD By More Than $100 Off

NVMe SSDs are the fastest storage you can put into your PC right now, and while the technology is looking forward to Gen4 speeds that rival the upcoming PS5 and Xbox Series X, Gen3 NVMe SSDs are still worth investing in. Amazon currently has a fantastic Prime Day deal on a 1TB WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD for $120, down from its regular price of $250.

It’s worth keeping in mind that your motherboard may not support a Gen4 SSD, so there’s actually a benefit to going with a Gen3 SSD like this one. You need compatible M.2 slots on your motherboard for NVMe SSDs, and if you put a Gen4 SSD in a Gen3 motherboard, you won’t be able to take full advantage of the SSD’s max speeds. Because of this, you can save quite a bit of money buying Gen3 NVMe SSDs instead.

$120 (was $250)

The SN750 has read/write speeds of 3,430MB/s. While the bigger deal belongs to the 1TB model, the 500GB model is also discounted to $63 (down from $80). If you order the 1TB model, please note you will have to wait a few weeks for it to ship–the 500GB model can be delivered by the end of the week.

If you are looking for an NVMe SSD that meets the speed requirements of the PS5, then you’ll be happy to hear that Western Digital recently revealed its Gen 4 lineup. That includes the WD Black SN850 NVMe SSD, which can reach read speeds of 7,000MB/s and write speeds of 5,300MB/s.
