Today at Amazon, users can find Western Digital’s WD Black 1TB SN850X for its lowest price to date. It’s been going for around $100 lately but right now it’s discounted to just $77 which takes the price down to about 8 cents per GB. This is a notably fast SSD suitable for everyday use and as well as gaming.

We reviewed the WD Black SN850X when it launched mid of last year and recognized it as one of the fastest SSDs on the market for gaming. Overall, it has exceptional performance. Our biggest con was the price — given today's discount, that con is easily set aside making this offer worth a look.

    Nice price, nothing special about Amazon's price. Same price directly from Western Digital, and zero chance of the product being counterfeit. Amazon merely mirroring WD's price drop.
