Okay, I’m cutting to the chase. At the moment, Ebuyer has a blistering deal on the Western Digital Black SN770 2TB drive, with a handy £45 reduction from its list price of £189.99 to make it £144.99, and if you want to upgrade your PC storage capacity with a fast. drive, the SN770 looks like a solid choice.
This is a solid PCIe 4.0 SSD that provides 2TB of capacity for you to use, as well as good speeds of up to 5150MB/s read and 4900MB/s write, respectively, as well as quoted IOPS figures of 740,000 and 800,000 random read/s. writes Despite these speeds being quite fast and this drive being PCIe 4.0, the SN770 unfortunately falls short of Sony’s PS5 requirements with read and write 10% less than Sony’s requirements – 5500MB/s read/write – meaning that you will remain to use. the SN770 in desktops and laptops, which is no problem at all to add a dose more speed, and of course, extra space.
Western Digital says the SN770 is 20 percent more efficient than the previous model. This will be especially handy if you use this SSD as a laptop for potentially longer battery life. It’s a result of the drive’s excellent PCIe 4.0 speeds, which are delivered using fewer lanes than an equivalent PCIe 3.0 drive, so it’s both faster and more efficient – the joys of newer hardware generations.
To go with the speed and performance of the drive itself, PC users can also use WD_BLACK Dashboard, Western Digital’s companion software to boost performance when in game mode and also give you easy access to the essentials of the drive. This is especially important for drive maintenance, and making sure everything is in order. Furthermore, since solid state drives like the SN770 have no moving parts, unlike mechanical hard drives, there is (of course) less room for failure. It also means that the SSD will be quieter and more resistant to damage from magnets, drops or shocks, which is always handy.
Ebuyer’s £144.99 WD Black SN770 2TB model is a pretty great deal if you want to get some great solid storage to add to a desktop or laptop before the Black Friday rush starts.
