The excellent 500GB WD Black SN750 SSD, with heatsink, is 29%-off—today only

One of our top SSDs is on sale, for today only, at Amazon. The WD Black SN750 is an excellent M.2 drive, and perfect for gaming, as it manages sequential read/write speeds of 3,400 / 3000MBps, and comes with heatsink to keep things nice and efficient if you're pushing your rig hard for long periods of time. Right now the 500GB version is on sale as part of Amazon's Daily Deals for $106 (saving you 29%). That's the cheapest the heatsink version of the SN750 has ever been. If you're not looking for the heatsink version, you can pick up the regular 500GB model for $86, which is a saving of 34% off the normal price. We'd heartily recommend either, as the SN750 stacks up really well against other NVMe drives.
