- The drive is fast: The box says read/writes up to 3400MB/s sequentially. However I've found mine, without any cache enhancements, to be about 2900MB/s. Still very fast. With RAM caching of 4GB (which is what I typically use), read/writes came in about 8000MB/s. See the attached benchmark images for no enhancement runs and with enhancement runs. For reference, with caching my Crucial SSD where the OS used to be would average about 800MB/s.
- Temps are solid: My motherboard included a m.2 heatsink which I am using for this. The m.2 slot on my board for the NVMe primary slot is right under the graphics card. So, when that starts putting out some heat, this thing will heat up a little as well. Even with that temperatures are in very respectable ranges. After running my benchmarks for the drive, the average was 41C and hottest was 44C, as seen in the image. After a gaming session, the peak temperature I've seen for the drive was 55C, but typically stays under 48C.
- Price: The prices for 3D NAND drives have been coming down and probably will continue to do so. Last year at this time, a 500GB drive was about $250. I picked this one up for $120. These will probably come down some more from there. All good news for us consumers.
My only con would be the issues I had with cloning the drive, most of which are not really related to this drive, but more related to the cloning software and my OS.
My final thoughts on this are: this drive performs very close to the Samsung 970 Plus drive. They are also about the same price. The Samsung and this are about the fastest drives you can buy at this price-point and are essentially interchangeable. The SN750 is vastly superior to an SSD, and the differences are noticeable in everyday use. WD products in my experience have been reliable with no drive failing for me in the past. So to anyone looking to get this, I would recommend.
M/B: Asus Prime X470 Pro
RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR4
V/C: Radeon VII
(the whole computer is new)
Note: The software for the drive is also nice. Small footprint and you can select it to not run unless you choose to. So no background processes running. The WD version of the software will also work on the SanDisk drives.
The WD BLACK provides read and write times of 3108 MB/s and 2214 MB/s which is more than double of what the OEM Samsung SSD provided with its read and write speeds.
This drive is a beast. Once the SSD was installed, it took less than ten minutes to have Windows 10 back up and running with my Transcend USB 3.1 flash drive. With the included WD app, I’m able to see a lot more information regarding my SSD than I was previously. And most importantly, the issues my girlfriend encountered playing games on her Yoga (specifically The Sims 4 which would constantly crash to a black screen) have all been eliminated with the new SSD.

Aún teniendo en cuenta que las versiones de 1TB suelen ser más rápidas siempre que sus contrapartidas de 500GB me gusta más el Samsung que el Western Digital.
Aunque el WD es muy rápido, incluso instalando el software de WD y poniéndolo en modo "gaming" el Samsung es algo más rápido que el WD. Así que a igualdad de precio recomendaría el Samsung.
No obstante el WD sigue siendo muy buena opción.
Adjunto benchmarks en texto del Samsung 970 evo plus 1TB, del WD SN750 500GB y de un Samsung 960 EVO por comparar.
Como veis en los números de abajo se ve que no falta mucho para topar con el límite teórico de PCIe 3.0 4x (3940MB/s) aunque va está PCIe 4.0 a la vuelta de la esquina con los Ryzen.
Las especificaciones técnicas del WD 500GB que se ven en la web las clava en cuanto a escritura y lectura secuenciales pero a las aleatorias con una cola de 32 y 8 hilos supuestamente debería dar las siguientes IOPS 420K lectura y 380K escritura y me está dando algo menos en escritura:
Random Read 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 8) : 1737.966 MB/s [ 424308.1 IOPS]
Random Write 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 8) : 1144.867 MB/s [ 279508.5 IOPS]
La durabilidad según fabricante en ambos modelos es la misma 300 TBW para los modelos de 500GB y 600 para los de 1TB. Esto equivale aproximadamente a una durabilidad de 5 años escribiendo una media de 164GB diarios, o dicho de otra forma, 10 años escribiendo 82GB diarios. Un plato es un plato y un vaso es un vaso pero es una cifra que en términos absolutos no es muy alta pero para el usuario medio es más que suficiente.
Os pongo los resultados del CrystalDiskMark 6.0.2. Podéis encontrar más info en la web:

But the funny thing is I can't see the improvement in my system speed after upgrading to this beast from my Intel ssd
After spending that much amount on just 500 gb nvme ssd I learnt that my games and my system was not bottlenecked by ssd speed
Yes nvme is fast but its useless for normal person
My games run the same, pc boots in same time, can't see improvement by naked eyes
And most funny thing if you are gonna copy something to this nvme drive it will not gonna give that 3GBps speed as other device will bottleneck it from which you ar copying data 😂😂 now I don't know how can I make use of this speed.
Lesson learnt after wasting money
I could have bought 1tb sata ssd instead of this in same price
Come sempre spero di esserti stato utile, il tuo giudizio per me è importante.
I bought this to increase the storage space on my laptop, not a problem fit perfectly fine however I've had constant BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) issues pertaining to Driver Violations since I have installed this SSD.
I ruled out the possibility of my laptop by performing a full re-format on my machine, I then tested my theory by installing NOTHING on the second SDD (WD Black) and not had any issues, then decided to put a 30GB Game on there to test how the SSD would perform within 10 minutes I had a BSOD.
Unfortunately for me I'm well outside my purchase period however I am going to complain as this is disgraceful, in the mean time I have ordered a Samsung EVO 970 instead as my original SSD was Samsung, may as well pay the extra few quid to have a performing piece of kit.
