Good for the technologically advanced. 2/26/2020 4:44:09 PM

Pros: These were an upgrade from a 120 GB Kingston SSD and a 1 TB Western Digital 7200 RPM Blue hard disk. Both were going to serve as boot drives for two media servers. They're plenty fast and the computers start up in no time at all.

Cons: The first SSD installed without incident. But Windows 7 (yes, I still use it) refused to install on the second SSD. I tried unplugging all other hard disks, reconfiguring the BIOS, which recognized the drive correctly, using the hidden command line utility in the setup to partition the disk, searching online for drivers, and even asking the man upstairs for help. Nothing worked. Then, I ran the Windows 10 installer, which immediately recognized and partitioned the SSD. I thought I might have to run Windows 10 on the second media server, but then I erased all partitions, ran the Windows 7 installer again, and it recognized, partitioned, and installed on the SSD without further incident. Both systems have been running for two weeks now without a hitch.

Overall Review: Four eggs, only because of the issues installing the SSD on my second media server.

WD Blue 1TB 2/26/2020 10:46:58 AM

Pros: Small, fast, quiet, lo power, IOW an SSD. Easy install in pc w/adapter.

Cons: A little slower than I expected, but big improvement on HDD. Did a full format- clean. It's on a fairly new MB, but an older single-core processor, and I have a lot going on (no games), BOINC runs full time. No benchmarks run.

Overall Review: Replaced W7 Ult System WD Black 500GB HDD (nice drive). Disc image, then free activated MS W10 Pro upgrade (still available). I'm satisfied and pleased, recommended.

So far, so good! 2/23/2020 9:48:56 AM

Pros: Reasonable price
Fast!
Quiet
Good capacity

Cons: Haven't noticed any so far.

Overall Review: I upgraded my ancient PC with more memory and faster disks. I had bought a WD Blue 256GB hard drive a few years ago, and finally installed it, but realized I didn't have the space for my pictures, movies, documents, etc.
So I went to NewEgg and found the WD Blue 2TB, and decided to splurge. It installed flawlessly and has been operating perfectly so far. I just moved some files to it today and saw about 150MB/s from the 256 GB flash drive to this new flash drive.
We'll see about longevity -- I'm not sure about the durability of 3D NAND -- but so far I'm happy!

WD internal SSD 2/22/2020 9:23:24 AM

Pros: After downloading some software to transfer the operating system the drive just works. I have installed 5 of these drives and they work fast and reliably.

Cons: Can't think of any. When they go on sale it is a reasonably good deal.

Overall Review: Fairly easy to install and just works.

Cant go wrong with WD! 2/22/2020 5:48:33 AM

Pros: Its a fast drive very reliable. Western Digital is usually what I would choose first for storage.

Cons: UPS makes it difficult to get my item, since I work and am not home when they deliver it, and they use the Hallmark store as a pickup location, even though theres a UPS store right here in town, then they decided my time was up later that day for me to pick up my item and they tried to ship it back to New Egg and thankfully the manager of the store held it for me and didnt allow them to take it.

Overall Review: If I could do it again I would probably go fo the NVMe version of this, or maybe the WD Black NVMe. I bought this drive for a laptop, and now the motherboard went on it as i am in the middle of building a new desktop, so i am gonna use this drive with that, but if i had the opportunity I would get the M.2 version of this or the black one.
