The summer bank holiday hasn’t provided a whole lot of sun, but no bother, if you’re already starting to feel the autumn chill, we’ve identified a couple of PC bargains to help warm the cockles.

Specifically, 4TB M.2 SSDs are subject of attention, as prices continue to drop to historic lows. Even the best drives are tumbling, as evidenced by the 4TB WD_Black SN850X, whose fee has fallen to £244 in the UK or $299 in the US.

It is worth remembering WD’s roomy SSD launched this time last year alongside a lofty £671 MSRP. It was a sought-after SSD then, but crashing NAND flash pricing is such that listings have been slashed by a whopping 64 per cent in roughly 12 months. Such savage cuts elevate the 4TB SN850X from good to great.

WD’s drive touts lofty sequential read and write speeds of up to 7,300MB/s and 6,600MB/s, respectively, but there is a still premium for a flagship SSD from one of the biggest brands in the business. For those wanting to keep costs as low as possible, the 4TB Lexar NM790 offers similar speeds at an even more attractive all-time-low of £182 GBP / $210 USD.


“Designed for gamers and creators, the Lexar NM790 SSD has the performance you need to accelerate your game and keep up with your creative endeavors.”
