    Best NVMe drive for the price. Goes on sale regularly.

    So far so good. Couldn't afford the Samsung but this is almost as good for a much better price. WD is dependable as far as I know.

    Very fast! In my opinion, the best M.2 value on the market currently.

    This drive is a beast. Speeds are fantastic and installation a breeze. Only issue I've seen is that temps get very high, 68c after 90 minutes of gaming. My old SSD never got above 45.

    EDIT Temps have not improved, with seeing highs as much as 77c. Considering WD advises 0-70c, I RMA'd it and just got a sata ssd from WD. Not worth risking the data loss in my opinion.

    This SSD was the last bit of the puzzle for this build and it is brilliant, reads are fast writes could be better but for the price of it I really can't complain.

    I was going to buy a regular SATA SSD when I saw this. This is really impressive and so far is lightning fast. I had one game that on HDD was taking over 10 minutes to load all the maps and content, this one does the same thing in under a minute. Everything seems more responsive and I have found that things I attributed to a CPU bottleneck were actually an HDD bottleneck as I no longer see the issue.

    Most surprising is the size. This SSD is smaller than a stick of ram.

    Wanna go fast? This drive will help you get there, it is insanely fast.

    This drive is quite certainly the sweet spot in terms of price versus performance in an NVME option. I almost missed the opportunity here. I didn't realize at first that NVME can present a 10x improvement of performance over current SATA SSD. That said it's about 2x the cost too. However this WD Black, although not as stellar a performer as the Samsung options, is only 50% more expensive today than the SSD equivalent. With my plans to leverage some virtualization, this was definitely worth the spend. I haven't benchmarked the drive, but SR has https://www.storagereview.com/western_digital_black_nvme_ssd_sandisk_extreme_pro_review
