Just buy a Samsung PRO or EVO! 8/2/2020 10:17:33 AM

Pros: Price, WD and SanDisk technology.

Cons: Software glitchy, doesn't recognize the SSD on a lot of systems. No direct firmware download available anywhere ever!

Overall Review: Just get a Samsung!

Works great 7/30/2020 8:15:07 AM

Pros: Replacement for an HDD. Popped it in my external drive case, cloned it over with the Acronis software I downloaded from Western Digitals web page. Swapped the SSD for HDD drive. No problems.

Overall Review: Speeds up a slow laptop 10 fold.

So far really good! Excellent Xbox hdd replacement. 7/29/2020 9:50:58 AM

Pros: Fast boot up really snappy.

Overall Review: If you do not see yourself jumping into the new xbox hardware upgrading your old hard drive can give your current console a bit more life with quicker loads and smoother game play on some games. Not to expensive and the upgrade is fairly simple following online tutorials.

Great product, bad software. 7/29/2020 7:50:41 AM

Pros: Drive runs as advertised dropped into dell laptop (Inspiron 15 7000 series) and was recognized no issues.
Great speed improvement for laptop. Major update going from original Toshiba hard drive to this.
Once cloned was able to boot from drive no problem.

Cons: Acronis cloning software DOES NOT WORK. Cloned the drive 3 times with Acronis and would not boot. Grabbed a free copy of Macrium and cloned the original drive to this and laptop booted up on first try.

Overall Review: No problem with the drive but WD needs to provide cloning software that actually works. I have used Samsung M.2 and SATA drives and their cloning software actually functions. It is ridiculous that a major drive manufacturer is providing software that doesn't function. 4 eggs only because of software issue the drive itself is a 5 egg item.

Bait & Switch - this is actually a SanDisk SSD G5 BICS4 7/28/2020 2:49:00 PM

Pros: I liked the price....but now I see why it was reduced.

Cons: I purchased the WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD drive and upon installing it today, the WD SSD Dashboard recognized this drive as a SanDisk SSD G5 BICS4. I double-checked the device manager and disk properties...and sure enough....the device ID is a San Disk SSD drive.

I understand that WD purchased SanDisk a couple of years ago...but Toyota and Lexus are owned by the same company, too...but they are not the same product. This is classic Bait & Switch.

Overall Review: I can't speak to the quality of the SSD drive yet, but that's not the point. I didn't purchase I SanDisk SSD drive, I purchased a WD Blue SSD drive.
