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.

    500 GB great for non-gaming rigs...

    I have but 1 game installed on my 500 GB 960 EVO, and, I don't even prefer to have 350 GB of it full, so, folks with several games will likely want a 1 TB version)

    Not that I would expect this site to do any research before posting these historic deals, but this drive has been at $70 quite frequently since mid December, and hasn't been sold for $120 since about April of last year.

    I don't have the WD_Black SSD but the Blue 500Gb.
    From my experience with WD vs Samsung SSD I'll stick with Samsung simply because their software is more
    User Friendly.

    Isn't this drive still overpriced compared to adata and stuff?

    Until retailers get restocked with budget motherboards AND we can get our hands on them before the scalpers scoop them all up again, the deal isn't quite good enough to get me to buy yet more components for a build that's been on hold going on three months now.

    I wish someone would write an article on when we'll see more MSI X570-A Pro and whatever else has been sold out since near the end of May.

    This has spent a LOT of time at $69.99. It was $65.99 from Newegg for a few days in June this year.
