Pros: Plugged it in , so much faster then i'm used to. really happy so far
Cons: None yet, though just installed.
Overall Review: Really happy so far. I'll give it a while to see . Kinda funny. Review got flagged for unacceptable words. I said ,I plugged it in and scre**d it down.
Pros: - It performs about 5 times faster than my old SATA SSD drive and about 20 times faster than my 7200RPM Drive
- Western Digital has a drive transfer utility on their website, which was very simple and easy to use to move my old primary drive's data to this one.
- The drive was new according to statistics from power on time and number of boot cycles. All health checks passed.
Cons: - Make sure to read your motherboard's manual before installing an M.2 drive. Some ports operate faster than others, and some disable certain SATA sockets when used.
Overall Review: Stats from CrystalDiskMark (1 GB test, 5 passes):
Sequential Reads: 2452 MB/s
Sequential Writes: 1999 MB/s
Random Reads: 1690 MB/s
Random Writes: 1193 MB/s
Pros: I am a PC building noob, this is super easy to install and my computer boots up in seconds.
Cons: None so far, it will be nice when the 2TB cards drop in price
Overall Review: Awesome storage, no complaints.
Overall Review: I was in the market for a 1-2 TB SSD and say this come in at a fantastic price. Benchmarks show it's not the fastest on the market but probably has the best price/perf ratio.
Was able to clone my previous entire 500GB (nearly full) SN500 NVME SSD in 25 minutes.
Plug and play functionality using MSI B450i and Ryzen 3700X.
No disappointments here.
Pros: Very easy to setup, just wanted something for my OS and partition/format program. Anyway M.2 came in yesterday,I got up today took out my 1 TB m.2 put this in and did my install's with no problems. I then put my second m.2 in slot 2 and scanned and formatted loaded my games. All went off with out a hitch. Very happy.
Overall Review: Very good price,easy to setup and would really recommend this ssd. and I know its not the fastest stuff around but I don't think to many people are going to notice a couple millisecond with out running a bench mark.
Pros: it used to work
Cons: started giving me bsod's when waking the pc up
Overall Review: seems to be bricked...six months of very light use and now it is not detected by the uefi on different mobos.
Overall Review: Title says it all. I don't regret using one of these for my boot drive, despite it being a bit more expensive than a SATA SSD. Highly recommend putting your OS and essential programs on this if you're doing a new build and can afford spending a little extra.
Cons: "WD in SN550 with the new components has a write speed of 390MB/s that's only about half the old configuration once the cache was used up. In effect, Western Digital silently downgraded the SN550, seemingly using slower NAND flash, presumably as a cost-saving measure."
Overall Review: I would not recommend this drive as WD has switched to cheaper NAND which cut the drive speed in half when cache is full and it does not have much cache to begin with.
