The Western Digital WD Black SN850 2TB SSD can reach read/write speeds as high as 7000/5100 MBps. While the SN850 can run hot, this edition comes with a heatsink intended for desktop PCs. Use promo code SSBS2824 to redeem the offer.

This deal is one of many we’ve covered today as part of our Memorial Day weekend sales coverage. We use tools like Google Shopping, PCPartPicker, as well as CamelCamelCamel for Amazon items to verify price history and recommend our users do the same. If you’re pressed for time, you can always check out our list of best Memorial Day deals and best SSD deals for more offers on leading hardware.

The Western Digital WD Black SN850 2TB SSD has an M.2 2280 form factor and uses a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface. Its read/write speeds are notably fast, reaching up to 7000 / 5100 MBps. This offer is for the edition that comes with a heatsink but another version is available without one which would be ideal for users intending to use it in a console.

We had the opportunity to review the WD Black SN850 2TB SSD when it was new and appreciated its fast-recovering dynamic SLC cache. Our biggest concerns were its tendency to run hot under a heavy load but this is easily remedied with a heatsink like the one included with this offer. It lacks AES 256-bit encryption and has high power consumption when idling on desktops but overall this discount makes the offer a more reasonable value.

Check out the WD Black SN850 2TB SSD (opens in new tab) product page at Newegg for more details and purchase options. Be sure to use promo code SSBS2824 at checkout to redeem the offer. You can also find more Memorial Day deals and various tech deals throughout the weekend as we continue throughout the holiday sale.

    Not for the heatsink version. On Amazon, it's been $269 since April (https://www.amazon.com/WD_Black-SN850-Internal-Gaming-Heatsink/dp/B08PMLYV9H?ref_=ast_slp_dp&th=1)
