It’s not a screaming NVMe drive or even that best SATA disk around. But if you’re after an SSD deal in the run up to Black Friday that will let your games and media stretch out with ease you need all the terabytes you can afford.

On that front, it’s tough to beat the 2.5-inch WD Blue 3D NAND 4TB, selling for just $385 on Amazon today, down $145 from its normal price of $530. 


4TB WD Blue SSD: was $530 now $385

With good performance for a SATA SSD and a spacious 4TB, the WD Blue 2.5-inch drive is a solid solid-state deal at this price.

We liked the WD Blue drive when we reviewed it in smaller capacities back in 2017, and the company launched the spacious 4TB model earlier this year. Now it’s down to its lowest price ever, and the lowest price we’ve ever seen on a 4TB solid-state drive, of which there are only a few. Samsung’s competing 4TB 860 EVO, for instance, is currently selling for just under $500 on Amazon. $385 is still certainly a lot of money. But if you need lots of room for your media collection and games, this deal is going to be tough to beat.
