While you can increase the storage on your PlayStation 5 in several ways, including plugging in an external hard drive, only an internal solid-state drive (SSD) will provide the same top performance you’re accustomed to from the PS5’s onboard storage. However, you can’t just pop in any SSD on the market; it has to be designed for the PS5 to ensure that it fits and can withstand the heat of high-performance gaming.

This is where the WD Black SN850X comes in. It’s designed specifically to meet the needs of the most demanding PS5 games, from the best RPGs to the best sports games, with a superfast PCIe Gen4 interface that allows data transfer speeds of up to 7,300MB/sec. A built-in heatsink also ensures that it can sustain this performance during marathon online battles.

Storage prices may be going down each year, but serious gaming still requires a high-performance SSD, and it’s hard to find a better price than this WD Black SN850X 1TB SSD deal for only $120.

Score the Beats Studio Pro for $100 off at Best Buy
Beats Studio Pro on headphone stand.

It’s getting harder and harder to find wireless headphones and earbuds without noise-canceling these days, and that’s because the feature is a true godsend. As masters of the tech, Beats has been delivering excellent ANC audio products for years, which is why we’re so excited that Best Buy has marked down the Beats Studio Pro headphones. Normally, these headphones are $350, but now they’re only $250 while the sale lasts!

Why you should buy Beats Pro headphones
A solid set of noise-canceling headphones are nothing without robust sound quality backing them up; and to that end, the Studio Pro has got you covered. You can expect big bass, articulate mids, and crystalline highs, but without all the sibilance that too much treble brings. You’ll even be able to download the Beats App to truly fine-tune your listening experience, while monitoring battery level and other vitals. There’s no multi-band EQ, but that’s a small detractor for some otherwise rock-solid companion software.

Best gaming console deals: cheapest prices on PS5, Xbox S and X and Switch
father and son playing video games

If you've always wanted to pick up a gaming console but have been putting it off for prices to get a bit better, now is the perfect time to pick something up. With many great Xbox Series S and X deals, PlayStation 5 deals, and Nintendo Switch deals to pick from, you can grab something for a relatively cheap price. To that end, we've gone out and collected some of our favorite deals below, including both new and refurbished options where available.
Xbox Series S 1TB -- starting at $330, was $380

The Xbox Series S is the less powerful but cheaper option out of the newest generation Xbox line. When comparing the Xbox Series S versus the Xbox Series X, the Series S takes a hit in all the component categories. That means it's not quite as fast. But if you're not hung up on getting the optimal performance out of your system, you'll actually notice very few differences. The two biggest ones are the Series S's inability to play in 8K, and its lack of a disc drive. Most people don't even have 8K TVs, so that shouldn't be an issue. If you're alright with downloading all of your games straight to the console's memory (and you have a separate DVD or Blu-Ray player), the Series S will work fine. It's quite a bit smaller anyway, and easier to fit on a shelf.

For this configuration with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics card, which usually costs $1,300, the retailer reduced its price to $950 for savings of $350. We're not sure how much time is remaining before the gaming desktop goes back to its regular price, so if you don't want to miss this opportunity, you need to complete the transaction for it as soon as you can.

Why you should buy the Thermaltake Shadow 360T gaming desktop
The first thing that you'll notice with the Thermaltake Shadow 360T gaming desktop is its attention-catching design, which features a lighting system that you can customize through the RGB SYNC software. You also have three case mounting options to choose from for the gaming PC -- either stay vertical, go horizontal and lay it on its side, or attach it to the wall to save on desk space.
