SSD prices have been steadily dropping the past few months, and the latest SSD sale extends the savings to the WD_Black SN750, one of Western Digital’s best SSDs. All sizes for the M.2 PCIe 3.0 drive are currently on sale at Best Buy and Newegg for $69.99. That’s $60.00 off its usual $129.99 price tag.

The WD_Black SN750 is a PCIe 3.0 M.2 2280 SSD that’s been facing a steady record of price drops since March of last year. However, $69.99 is the lowest it has ever been according to CamelCamelCamel. For that price, you’ll get a 2600 MB/s write speed and a 3430 MB/S write speed, though you’ll have to look at a different listing (which is also on sale) to add on a heatsink to your purchase. It also has included software with a special gaming mode that disables the drives low power modes to reduce latency. Comparing it to other WD internal SSDs, it’s also the fastest consumer grade option the company offers.

The WD_Black SN750 is an PCIe 3.0 M.2 2280 SSD that currently holds the record as WD’s fastest consumer-grade internal drive. It has read speeds of 2600 MB/s and write speeds of 3430 MB/s, as well as software with a gaming mode that disables low power modes to reduce latency.

Our review for the WD_Black SN750 called it pricey on release, though at almost half-off, this deal makes it far more approachable. For performance, however, the SSD consistently topped the charts in benchmarks like DiskBench, SYSmark and Atto. In particular, we praised its power efficiency and sustained write performance.

If you need a bit more space, though, the 1TB version is also on sale for 44% off, dropping from $249.99 to $139.99. The 250GB and 2TB versions of the drive also have discounts running right now, though neither are quite as steep.
