The Seagate Firecuda 520 1TB Gen4 NVMe M.2 solid state drive is down to $199.99 on Amazon. This is an SSD that often sells as high as $250 or more but more regularly goes for around $230, which is what it's going for at other retailers like Newegg. Either way, the drop to $200 is the lowest we have ever seen. The 520 Series has only been around since last November, too, so it hasn't dropped much in price at all since then.

The Firecuda 520 is the Gen4 version of Seagate's super fast SSD lineup. Windows Central reviewed the Firecuda 510, the Gen3 version, back in November. The review gave it 5 out of 5 stars and called it The Best. Rich Edmonds said, "Seagate made an exceptional SSD. The FireCuda 510 is everything a PC owner needs with amazing read and write speeds, solid reliability, and high levels of endurance. All at an aggressively low price." Just imagine all that but marginally faster for the 520.

So this crazy internal SSD uses an M.2 2280 form factor, which means you need a motherboard capable of fitting that M.2. Not all of them are capable of supporting M.2 SSDs, so definitely don't buy this impulsively. However, when you do get it you won't regret it. The speeds are nuts. You'll get read/write speeds that hit up to 5 MB/s and 4,400 MB/s respectively.

Plus, this thing is designed with durability in mind. It can handle up to 2,800 terabytes written and has an MTBF of 1.8 million hours. MTBF is a unit of measurement usually measured in just tens of thousands of hours. We're talking millions. Seagate also backs it up with a five-year warranty.

To be fair, this is probably too much SSD for most people. If you aren't regularly dealing with huge files like a photographer or video editor might be doing, you could settle for the Firecuda 510 just fine. But with today's deal you're only paying about $15 more, so the jump isn't too far to make.
