Finding stock of Sony’s next-gen PlayStation 5 console is much easier these days. If you’re an avid gamer, you may find that the included 1TB SSD fills up quickly as you try out new games and save all your progress. However, if you need more storage capacity, you can upgrade the device with an M.2 SSD.
Best Buy has discounted the WD SN850P 2TB Internal SSD PCIe Gen 4 x4 with Cooler by $130, bringing the price down to $140. It provides 2TB of additional storage for your PlayStation 5 console – and is officially licensed and tested to be fully compatible with your PS5’s M.2 slot. However, if you’re interested in this offer, act fast, as it expires tonight, August 2 at 21:59. Pacific Time (12:59 AM ET).
You absolutely must buy an M.2 drive with an integrated heatsink to keep it from overheating, and this M.2 SSD option offers just that. It also achieves read speeds of up to 7,300 megabytes per second and write speeds of up to 6,600 megabytes per second, so your games should be smooth. Since you can play games directly from the drive, there is no need to transfer or delete games from the console. At just $140, it’s a win-win for any serious gamer.
