Not all the deals available for Amazon Prime Day are amazing, but this offer on the WD_Black SN850 SSD which is compatible with PS5 consoles seems like a deal that can’t be missed.
At £99.74 for the 1TB with a heatsink saving you 61% looks unbeatable but sometimes good things come to those who look elsewhere.
Scan has the same model, with a free Xclio Pro M.2 Heat Sink worth £14, for just £89.99. You’ll get free delivery and don’t need to be an Amazon Prime member, of course.
However, if you want the cheaper 500GB model, Amazon does have a decent price for this at £63.59. Not a Prime member? You might be able to sign up for a free trial or Ebuyer has matched this price if you prefer.
If you’ve been waiting to buy an SSD for your PlayStation 5 then here’s an amazing chance, whichever model and retailer you opt for.
We awarded the SN850 8/10 in our full review and features in our best SSD chart, but two of the things stopping it score higher were the lack of heatsink as standard and its potential to run warm without one.
That’s not an issue with these deals so pop this SSD into your PS5 and you’ll be loading games in no time thanks to the 7000MB/s read speed. This means it’s certified for PS5 usage and although you can spend less on an external drive, you can’t run PS5 games directly from it, only PS4.
