At $100, Best Buy’s WD Blue 1TB deal equates to 10 cents per gig. In our WD Blue SATA SSD review we praised the drive's level of performance, particularly for an SSD targeting consumers. Other drives, especially M.2 SSDs, have replaced this as one of the best SSDs you can buy right now. But the WD Blue is still a strong contender -- especially when selling for one-third off its launch price.
