After a Black Friday SSD deal? Here’s a 1TB WD Blue SN550 for only £80

Gotta load fast.

Do you feel like it’s time to move on from HDD to something faster for your PC storage but you’ve been put off by the high price of SSDs? Well, this Black Friday is your best chance to get a huge boost in speed and storage with the WD’s Blue SN550 NVMe SSDs.


NVMe SSDs are future-proof and by far the fastest performing storage drives out there right now, with read speeds of 2400 MB per second that put it over four times the speed of SATA drives.

And thanks to Amazon’s Black Friday discounts, they’re also easily the best value NVMe SSDs you can get hold of.

The discounts apply to various models, starting with the 250GB version, but for the greatest saving, you’ll want the 1TB, which is down to £79.99. That’s a whopping 35% less than its original price.

There’s also a 2TB model available, though this remains at a whopping £276.99. But never say never, who’s to say it doesn’t receive a cheeky discount on Black Friday itself?

Just be aware that your PC needs a motherboard with an M.2 slot to install an NVMe SSD, which should be the case for most modern motherboards. If you’re looking to increase storage for your PS5 on the other hand, we’re afraid you’ll have to wait a bit longer. The console doesn’t support SSD expansion at launch while Sony has yet to verify which off-the-shelf NVMe SSDs will be compatible with PS5.

If you’re looking for more storage options, such as the more affordable SATAs or perhaps an external SSD for your laptop, then we’ve got plenty more you can check out on our Black Friday SSD deals page.
