Wow... this would have been an amazing deal but looks like it's been fixed. Now at $350. 

 

EDIT* Oh snap, you have to add it to cart to get 40% off.

Thanks for posting.  I don't own a ps5 but grabbed one with trade credit for pc use.  For the record I tried to purchase/redeem an online certificate but it wouldn't apply.

Man I got the 1tb WD from them last year for $180...

Deal too good to pass up, guess the 1tb is getting passed down to my kid's PS5  8-)

Thanks! I also had enough credit to not pay anything out of pocket and could definitely use the space with horizon and GT7 right around the corner.

What a deal! Ordered the 2TB immediately for my PS5. Thanks OP.

 

edit. Do you need to update the firmware via PC before installing it on the PS5 to get the best maximum read speed? I read a few reviews on GS product page it says if you don't update you get about about 5500 MBps. If you update you get 6500 MBps or higher. Is it possible to update the firmware with an m.2 enclosure? I don't have an m.2 slot on my PC.

Appears not available?  I got a 2TB for my PC and 1TB for my PS5.

Oh, GameStop.  Don't stop failing successfully for us...

Fair warning, there's tons of reports of people buying these previously and getting wrong size or without heatsink models.  So just plan ahead you might need to call CS when it shows up in a few months maybe.

Ordered a 2TB version and it shipped and is showing delivery tomorrow. Sucks, I just bought a 1TB 970 Pro for my new laptop's secondary drive for $100 and now that's gonna get replaced... with this so not sure what to do with that drive. Already have like 5 externals from old HDs, LOL. 

 

Man I got the 1tb WD from them last year for $180...

Deal too good to pass up, guess the 1tb is getting passed down to my kid's PS5  8-)

If it's from last year, that drive might not be Gen 4/PS5 compatible.

It is the WD Black SN850 it is gen 4 and great for PS5 (already installed with heatsink) but 2tb is always better :)

Lucky, mine shows just assigned a shipping label/request and coming from Kentucky.  Due to CA on Friday but FedEx sucks and more often than not, delayed.  My last GS order from just before Christmas I received end of Jan, just before my 30 day return window closed (filler for free shipping).
