As noted in our Steam Deck review, ASUS ROG Ally review, and Lenovo Legion Go review, you can often save money by getting an entry-level device and upgrading the storage to 1TB. 

That's where this deal comes into play. Valve charges $100 more for 1TB. Or maybe you already bought one with 512GB and now have storage anxiety. Well, by upgrading to 1TB, you can solve that problem instantly.

Moreover, Valve, ASUS, and Lenovo don't offer a 2TB version, but you can have one if you want.

The Western Digital WD_BLACK SN770M NVMe SSD being $80 for 1 TB is such a fantastic option, especially when compared to the WD_BLACK C50 Expansion Card for Xbox, which is still struggling to get under $100, though they are on sale right now for $124.99.

With a deal this good on the WD_BLACK SN770M NVMe SSD, they could sell out, especially as so many have been purchasing the new Steam Deck OLED. If you plan to get one, this will likely be the lowest these SSDs go this year.
