Daily Deals: WD Black SN850 1TB SSD: The Best PS5 Console Storage Upgrade Option Is Back in Stock (and More Deals)

If you’re looking to upgrade your PS5 console’s internal storage, then you’re in luck. The WD SN850 M.2 SSD complete with a low-profile heatsink is back in stock from Western Digital direct. It’s the most recommended SSD option for the PS5, but it has also been sold out everywhere for a while. It’s currently back in stock at Western Digital, but probably only for a short while. In other deal news, save on the lightest wireless mouse that Logitech sells, the newest Forza Limited Edition Xbox controller, the latest generation Apple iPad Air, and powerful Lenovo gaming laptops during the Intel Gamer Days Sale event.

Back in Stock (Including 1TB Model): WD Black SN850 M.2 SSD with Heatsink

The Western Digital official storefront has all models of the SN850 SSD with heatsink in stock right now, and that includes the extremely hard to find 1TB model. This is currently the most popular (and probably the best) SSD to get for your PS5 storage upgrade. It’s blazing fast drive with transfer speeds rated at up to 7,000 MB/s and a PCIe Gen4 interface and it comes preinstalled with a heatsink. It’s also confirmed by Western Digital themselves to be compatible with the PS5.

Dell XPS Intel Core i7-11700 RTX 3060 Ti PC with 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 1TB HDD

True high end gaming on a budget. There is one of the best deals we’ve seen for an RTX 3060 Ti equipped PC. The RTX 3060 Ti is a very powerful video card; it’s better than the previous generation’s RTX 2080! It’s a big upgrade from the 3060 non-Ti model and the one to get if you’re going to play games at resolutions of 1440p or higher.

Forza 5 Limited Edition Xbox Controller

Forza 5 Limited Edition Xbox Controller

This wicked looking Xbox controller went up for preorder last week for $74.99. Today, it’s on sale on Amazon for $69. This is one of the best new Xbox controllers out on the market. There’s much attention to detail in this controller, like the transparent yellow finish with candy colored splatter, custom-colored, visible rumble motor and lighting effects, color shifting hybrid D-pad, asymmetrical thumbsticks in different bold colors, and textured controller grips.

Logitech G Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse (Lightest Logitech Wireless Mouse)

Logitech G Pro Wireless Mouse

This is the mouse I currently use for gaming and I highly recommend it. Wireless mice usually weigh more than wired mice because of the battery. The G Pro Wireless bucks that trend by being far and away the lightest wireless mouse that Logitech sells at only 2.8 ounces. As a comparison, the wireless MX Master 3 weighs 5 ounces, the wireless G503 weighs 6 ounces, even the popular wired G502 Hero weighs 4.2 ounces without any of its adjustable weights.

Razer Core X eGPU Enclosure

Razer Core X External GPU Enclosure (eGPU)

Graphics Card Not Included

Razer Core X External GPU Enclosure (eGPU)

If your laptop has a Thunderbolt 3 port, you can supercharge its gaming capabilities by adding this external GPU enclosure. No video card is included, so you can add your own. Desktop video cards are far more powerful than their mobile variants; stick an RTX 2060 in here and it will be faster than any gaming laptop on the market. It’s normally $400, but today there’s a hefty 30% off discount that drops it down to only $280.

Lenovo ThinkPad laptops are known for their best-in-class ruggedness and reliability, and even if it ever breaks down, Lenovo offers the best customer service in the business. Usually, that level of build quality and support usually comes at a steep price. Add an RTX 30 series video card to the mix and you’d expect a cost that most people would balk at. Take this laptop for example. It’s retail price is nearly $5,000. However, there is a coupon today that drops the price way down to under $2900. If you’re looking to purchase a ThinkPad that’s got the power to do some serious gaming, you won’t find a price like this anytime soon.

Lenovo Intel Gamer Days Sale: Save on Legion Gaming Laptops and Desktop PCs

Lenovo’s “Legion” series of gaming PCs and laptops offer the latest and greatest gaming performance at a very reasonable cost. They’re equipped with the newest RTX 30 series video cards, which offer huge speed gains compared to the previous generation’s RTX 20 series cards, along with new technology like DLSS 2.0 (very useful) and ray tracing (not as much). Alongside these new GPUs are your choice of either AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series or Intel’s Rocket Lake/Tiger Lake processors. Lenovo also offers one of the best customer service experiences compared to other prebuilt PC makers, which is especially important if you haven’t built the PC yourself. Lenovo’s sale events can be hard to navigate, so we’ve conveniently rounded up a list of the best Legion deals going on right now.

Gigabyte Aero 15″ 4K OLED Intel Core i7-11800H RTX 3060 (105W TGP) Gaming Laptop with 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD

An RTX 3060 laptop for $1299 is already a pretty solid deal. Gigabyte goes one step further by adding in a gorgeous 4K AMOLED display. These powerful 15″ laptops weigh only 4.4lbs and are paired with the newest 11th gen Intel Core i7 processors and plenty of RAM and SSD storage. The video card is rated at 105W TGP. There’s a similar deal available at Newegg for $50 less, but you’d have to apply for a mail-in rebate and you get less SSD storage.

$100 Off the Newest Apple iPad Air

2020 Apple iPad Air 10.9" 64GB WiFi Tablet (4th Gen)

2020 Apple iPad Air 10.9″ 64GB WiFi Tablet (4th Gen)

The 4th generation Apple iPad Air released in 2020 is still the newest model out. It’s one of the most powerful tablets on the market and considerably less expensive than an iPad Pro. Thanks to its slim bezels, it has a larger screen size (10.9″ vs 10.2″) compared to the iPad without noticeably increasing the overall footprint. The iPad Air’s display also boasts better image quality, thanks to Tru Tone and P3 Wide Color (gamut). It connects via USB Type-C cable, which is much more convenient than the proprietary Lightning cable.

New Release: Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset with More Storage, Same Price

The Oculus Quest 2 has so far been the best value when it comes to VR gaming. It’s hundreds of dollars cheaper than its competitors, it has phenomenal tracking, it doesn’t need to be tethered to a PC, and it boasts a huge library of games (even Half Life: Alyx is easily playable on the Quest 2). It’s also the best VR headset for Beat Saber. Now, Oculus has re-released its Oculus Quest 2 VR headset with double the storage (128GB vs 64GB) for the exact same price. There’s even less of a reason now to pick something else.
