The storage available out-of-the-box on consoles, laptops, desktop PCs, and ultimately any gaming platform, remains a never-ending task of improvement. Because the games and their updates demand more and more space, so that sooner rather than later we have to expand the GB of our equipment on our own.
And in the event that the time comes when we have to give our gaming equipment extra space, we have a wide range of alternatives available. But without a doubt, NVMe SSDs are the most interesting due to the great performance they offer in latest generation consoles and computers. This is the case of this Western Digital model, which is reduced to 169.99 euros in PcComponentes from its original 267.70 euros, which means reaching its historical minimum price.
If we are looking for the best possible performance and a large amount of space in which to store dozens of games, this Western Digital SN850 is undoubtedly one of the best options on the market. It belongs to the WD Black family, the top of the range from this manufacturer, and offers ultra-fast performance beyond any doubt.

This model is the one with 1 TB of storage (within its category we find different alternatives), a fairly balanced amount of space in terms of value for money when it comes to playing games. It is compatible with PCIe 4.0 and incorporates a heat sink with which to keep temperatures at bay when it is working at full capacity.
The most interesting thing of all is that it is compatible with the latest Sony console. We can add it to our PlayStation 5 and thus greatly expand its internal capacity without losing performance along the way. For which you need to be at least on version 21.02-04.00.00 of your system. And of course, this WD Black can also be used perfectly on gaming desktop and laptop motherboards from recent years, either directly on the compatible M.2 connector or with PCIe adapters.
