Most Favorable Review

Figured I would splurge building a new PC was not disappointed.

Western Digital WD BLACK SN850 NVMe M.2 2280 1TB PCI-Express 4.0 x4 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS100T1X0E
Western Digital WD BLACK SN850 NVMe M.2 2280 1TB PCI-Express 4.0 x4 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS100T1X0E

Pros: Fast Very Fast

Cons: Still premium price

Overall Review: Initially I was going to buy an SSD. Then I decided to get an M.2. Then I saw this and on a whim change from the 3.0 to this one. This is like going from HDD to SSD in terms of speed over SSDs. (Well maybe not that much but it is much much faster) Western Digital doesn't disappoint. (I still have 6 750 GB WD Blacks in a RAID that has been running 24x7 for 10 years with no failures.) Idea on speeds it takes Windows 10 longer to copy the WIM file from a USB 3.0 stick than it does to actually do the install. You better have the latest MB with 4.0 support and a current gen processor (AMD Ryzen 3rd gen) to take full advantage of this. I'm getting ready to buy a second one to RAID them.
