Daily Deals: Best PS5 Upgrade: WD Black SN850, Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset, Apple AirPods Pro, Lenovo ThinkPad RTX 3080 Gaming Laptop, Dell XPS RTX 3060 Ti Gaming PC
Now that the PS5 has officially released an update that allows for internal M.2 SSD expansion, it might be worthwhile for you to upgrade your storage. The WD Black SN850 has always been the most recommended SSD for this upgrade. A heatsink is strongly recommended, but there's no need to waste money buying an expensive SSD with a pre-installed heatsink. You can easily buy a heatspreader off Amazon for much less and install it yourself. The install takes no more than a few minutes and you'll come out at least $50 richer.

The WD SN850 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. It's also confirmed by Western Digital themselves to be compatible with the PS5. Save $70 and get the model without heatsink, then buy a cheap PS5 compatible heatsink on Amazon and put it on yourself (it's super easy). If, on the other hand, you're looking for the 500GB or 2TB model, WD Store does have discounts on those.
