Yes, the PS5 is theoretically the best modern gaming console, but there is one thing we don't like so much about them (apart from their scarcity). And that's the feeble internal hard drive that they come with. Luckily you can soup-up your console easily, and right now the best Black Friday PS5 SSD deal that we can find is on an official brand – $50 off the WD_BLACK (1TB) SN850, down from $179.99 to $129.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab).

Fully compatible with the PS5, this SSD offers powerful performance and fast transfer speeds. Installation is quick and easy, and it even features HeatSink technology so there's no risk of the card overheating when in your console.
