Great performance

Pros: Sequential read/write 2700/2260 mb/s
4K read/write 42/127 mb/s
4k-64 read/write 1232/777 mb/s

timing read/write 0.067/0.030 ms

On average 3.5 times the performance of my wd blue. Cloned OS and boot time has improved.

Cons: cannot reach advertised speeds on AD SSD.

Edit: Switched the card to an m.2 slot x4. Achieved the advertised speeds within margin of error. Changing 5 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: Good buy overall. Keep it up WD.

Great SSD for the OS

Pros: Great brand, reliable, Fast, came with OS transfer software.

Cons: cost, NVMe / SSD’s are still expensive but the prices have dropped a lot in the past few years.
OS transfer software not as good as Samsungs. It was a much longer process.
I have also noticed that the SSD runs hotter than my Sata based SSD’s. This one idles at around 40 degrees C, and will easily get up to 50 degrees C. My Sata SSD’s usually sit at 30 degrees C. It is still easily in the safe range for the hardware.

Other Thoughts: CrystalDiskMark
WD Black NVMe: Read 3414MB/s, Write 2543MB/s
For Comparison
Samsung 850 Pro (512GB): Read 553MB/s, Write 502MB/s
Samsung 850 Evo (1TB): Read 555MB/s, Write 508MB/s
Samsung 860 Evo 256GB (sata) : Read 542 MB/s, Write 509 MB/s
WD Red 10TB: Read 207MB/s, Write 120MB/s


I initially bought the Samsung 950Pro but it was an international version so I could not register it for warranty, so it was returned. I ended up choosing the WD black instead partially because of this experience and because at the time WD had a temporary drop in price.

After reading some reviews I decided that it had plenty of performance for me. I am using this SSD for the OS in a Media center PC (Intel NUC). Reliability is more important than speed in this case.
I have had the WD Black for about 6 months now without any problems.

Great Internal Solid State Drive (500GB)

Pros: Easy to install in my NAS (2)
Provides enough cache for uploads and downloads
Excellent price

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I would recommend to others
Would be able to install in computers with minimal HD SSD such as 128GB/256GB - 500GB is much more robust.

What a quality product.

Pros: -FAST
-No issues

Cons: -none

Other Thoughts: In the heated debate between Samsung and WD, its a mute argument. You will not be disappointed in this drive, unless you are a synthetic bench mark bragger. I have had 4 WD drives in a row now, and not one has given me a problem or disappointed me. I would suggest if you are considering this over the Samsung to buy the WD, you will not be disappointed.

Faster than advertised according to crystal disk.

Pros: Easy to install and free Acronis is fast to install and clone Windows 10 after you initialize the drive, on reboot, BIOS automatically makes it C drive.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I had a backup of AC Unity on a 5 year old Toshiba Canvio 750gb 3.0 USB external HD. The WD NVMe.M.2 copied the 50gb of data in less than 4 minutes. Steam then verified all files and game was ready to play along with Ubisoft's existing save file.
