A PS5 SSD deal is a perfect addition to anyone's PS5 setup, and this PS5 SSD offer here bags you one of the very best PS5 SSDs, for its lowest ever price. 

Right now, the WD Black SN850 is down to just $199.99 at Amazon - and Best Buy - for the 1TB version with heatsink. This deal is so good, and considering it's also one of the best SSDs for gaming for PC too, it only gets better when considering multiple perspectives. As far as PS5 SSD models go, this one is hard to beat. 

As a reminder, the  WD Black SN850's premium nature and unique selling point come from its awesome performance which can reach read and write speeds of up to 7,000MB/s and 5,300MB/s respectively.

In our testing, we found that real-world performance did indeed reach close to these quoted numbers - 6996 MB/s read and 5205 MB/s write - so it's proven to be a top performer. The heatsink is a proprietary one so you don't need to worry about adding your own by going down the DIY route and also worrying about warranty voiding possibilities by doing so. 

What's more, this is the SSD that PS5 architect Mark Cerny himself has chosen to put inside his own personal machine so you know it's a solid and reliable, but also a top-performing choice you can have confidence in.

Today's best PS5 SSD deals


WD BLACK SN850 1TB w/Heatsink | $280 $199.99 at Amazon
Save $80 - This is one of the very top dogs when it comes to PS5 SSDs and is the one that Mark Cerny himself chose to go inside his PS5. And at its lowest ever price, you can't go wrong with this offering. Literally, the best PS5 SSD deal on this model we've ever seen.The same great price is also available from Best Buy.


WD BLACK SN850 1TB w/Heatsink | £219.06 at Novatech
The same great drive is available in the UK but it's nowhere near its lowest ever price, unfortunately. However, having said that, this price is still pretty good for this premium PS5 SSD, so if you want one for the holidays - or to treat someone else - then this isn't a bad shout. It's also available at Amazon too but for a few quid more - £225.89 (still, a saving of 12%)

Since Sony opened up the SSD for all users to enjoy, there has been an explosion in demand for PS5 SSDs, and a respective explosion in the supply of them. Some PC-models first have come to the fore - with or without their own heatsinks - while other brands have begun crafting their own bespoke PS5 versions. It's a great item to inject into your setup, and getting one of the best for it's lowest ever price offers unparalleled value.
