Get 'em while the going's good.

WD_Black SN850X Price Drop!

Isn’t it terrible finding out about a good deal after it has expired? That’s likely to be a common occurrence for folk in the market for a solid-state drive, as the very best price drops from 2023 are behind us.

Prices are expected to continue rising this year as manufacturers scale back on production, yet there’s good news for anyone still hoping to bag a bargain. We’ve scoured the virtual shelves to see what deals are worth a punt and have landed on a handful of noteworthy examples.

First and foremost, the excellent 1TB WD_Black SN850X – a Club386 award winner – is back on offer at £68.99 on UK shores. That’s better than half price, and close to the historic lows witnessed six months ago. The very same model is $84.99 across the pond, while a 2TB model will set you back $139.99.

WD’s high-speed drive hits speeds of up to 7,300MB/s, making it a potent choice for any build. Want to really crank up the dial? Then make note of the 4TB Crucial T700, a forward-looking PCIe Gen 5 SSD that manages an outrageous 12,400MB/s. You do pay a premium at £541 / $499, but then again, that’s a healthy reduction on recent prices and the lowest we’ve seen in 2024 thus far.

Favour capacity over sheer speed? Not to worry, we’ve got you. The cavernous 8TB Samsung 870 QVO, a popular deal from last year, is back on sale at £329. Another welcome drop for a drive that in recent months has been difficult to find for under four hundred quid.

The good times are likely coming to an end, so you might want to strike before it’s truly too late. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
