There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Performance is fantastic and the benchmarks I get match what reviewers got. This was a worth upgrade for an Intel 600p that would really choke up with large, sustained writes. Buying this drive is a promise that you will have top tier performance.
Only con is the drive is really brand new to the market, so we can't really comment on long-term durability or anything, but I imagine it will be fine. We might see a firmware update down the road since this is so new.
BIOS settings to change: x4, Gen3.
Took me a while to find where these were.
First pic in normal use, second with bitlocker enabled. Windows 10 Pro 1803.
System: Asus ROG Laptop GL753VE, Core i7-7700HQ, 16GB RAM DDR4.
WD SSD Dashboard need improvements, no TRIM option, fail to connect to internet to check updates and firmwares..
