This is at least $40 off its normal going rate and marks a return to the all-time low that we’ve only tracked once before. If you’re still running off of a standard SATA SSD, or even an older platter hard drive, it’s time to upgrade. WD’s SN550 SSD delivers up to 2.6GB/s data transfer rates, which is blazing fast compared to older storage methods. It also requires no wires, as M.2 mounts directly to your motherboard for a clean setup overall. Rated 4.8/5 stars and you can learn more in our announcement coverage.
