Whenever there's a really good deal on an SSD you can always count on PCWorld to remind you this is the single best upgrade you can give a PC. Today, we've got a great deal on one of our favorite drives: Amazon's got the 1TB WD Blue 3D NAND SSD for $199. That's $30 off its most recent price, and the all-time historical low for this SSD.

The WD Blue 3D NAND earned honorable mention as "the best SSD for most people" in our round-up of the best SSDs of 2018. Bear in mind that this SSD will only work in your PC if it can accept M.2 form factors, and it also uses the SATA III interface instead of the speedier and more cutting edge NVMe. Still, most users should be plenty happy with this SSD packing a ton of storage into a small and speedy package.

When we reviewed the WD Blue 3D last November we were impressed that the write speeds didn't really drop as they tend to do with other TLC NAND SSDs. It was also a great value at the time for more than $300, and just a few months later that value is off the charts at $199.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
