WD wants this drive to fail ASAP

Pros: Looks nice on paper

Cons: Reports an unhelpful 512 byte sector size, and no way to determine the actual write page size, which WD considers "proprietary information". Use *very carefully* or expect about 1/10th the endurance claimed. It would seem that WD *wants* this SSD to stop working as soon as possible. Consider buying from a manufacturer that respects their customers instead.

Overall Review: Unlike hard drives, SSD's have limited endurance and are affected by what's known as "write amplification". Basically, a write to NAND can only be done in units called "pages". Writing less than a page leaves part of the page empty. The controller can eventually stitch these smaller writes together, but it hurts performance, and more importantly, means that, in order to fill a page, the SSD has to write many pages. (Comparatively, if the OS knows the page size, it can issue writes in whole pages.) This "write amplification" can cause a major discrepancy in how much data the OS writes to the drive and how much is actually written to the NAND (which is what wears out). As a result, the drive can stop working as much as 10x sooner than expected.

Now, a *reputable* manufacturer would advertise the page size, not only in the product documentation, but in a way that the OS can recognize. WD does neither; the only meaningful metric reported by the drive is a 512-byte "sector size". An OS that isn't actively on guard against such maliciousness is at risk of creating a huge write amplification factor (I've seen reports as high as 20x) and wearing out the SSD much, *much* sooner than would occur with proper use.

So what is the *actual* page size? According to WD: "the information that you are looking for is a proprietary information and it is not available for the customers." (Note that there is widespread agreement that modern SSD's have a page size of *at least* 4KiB.)

Works for what I bought it to do

Pros: Tremendous size, small form factor, quick speeds (like all SSDs)

Cons: Price? None that I've found, really

Overall Review: I bought this to remove the need for one of my DJ laptops to use an external drive and reduce my workspace footprint. Being able to hold not only the OS (Win 10 Pro) and my music collection (~1.5TB, over 180k songs) is SO much better than having to connect an external spinning disk drive (they're cheap I know but not nearly as fast or reliable). I opted to do the install the OS from scratch method rather than using Macrium Reflect as the old install of Win 10 was getting on into four years (I replaced the laptop's battery too). The laptop is pretty tiny (HP 1020 G1) and would only take an M2 2280 SSD. Make sure you verify that the drive version (form factor) you order will fit into your system as there are differences. I've used WD drives for quite a while and have always had good luck with them. You usually pay a bit more, but the reliability is worth it to me in the long run. So far I've been very happy with the drive and hope to get at least four years of use out of it. By that time I expect I will have other issues with the laptop (Running as a mobile DJ can put more wear and tear on hardware than a business executive would). If you need an M2 SSD, it's hard to go wrong with this WD.
