- Western Digital Black 2TB NVMe SSD for $275
$310, and code 93XQJ34 applies $35 off.
Normally sells for $294, so this deal is about 6% off.
Western Digital's "Black" products are their highest-end consumer-grade storage, and backed by a 5-year warranty.
If your laptop, desktop, or bookshelf computer is within 2 years old, it is likely an NVMe drive is already inside.
They vary in performance and capacity.
This Black NVMe can read and write up to about 3 Gigabytes per second, which is about 3-4 times faster than a 2.5" SSD and about 20 times faster than a hard drive.
See if NVMe will work in your laptop, desktop, or bookshelf computer by searching for its model on Crucial's Advisor Tool.
If it shows that Crucial's NVMe "solid state drives" of 2TB capacity are listed as being compatible with your computer, than the Western Digital Black 2TB NVMe should also work.
