- Solid drive, good price, great reliability so far- June 4, 2021
I use this as a hard drive for games, alongside my Samsung M.2 operating system drives, which are significantly more expensive. I basically have a three-tier setup...M.2's for OS and applications that need a lot of performance, this SSD for intermediate performance applications/games, and mechanical drives for larger storage. I've got several of these WD Blue SSDs and they all work flawlessly, and performance is quite good. Reliability has been good so far on the older ones as well. And the price point is good. Overall, I have no problem recommending this drive.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Disappointing. Do NOT recommend.- July 6, 2021
All the hype about SSD drives? Finally purchased one. Disappointing. Boot time about 3 seconds. Absolutely silent. That's it. Application load times - no appreciable difference. Read/write times - no appreciable difference. So, unless your hard drive sounds like a raccoon playing with a can of rocks or your time is so valuable that saving 60 seconds booting your computer is worth $200 bucks then why bother with an SSD? Do NOT recommend.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Good 2 TB SSD- January 18, 2021
I am using this drive in a USB 3.0 connected external dock along with a 4TB WD NAS drive bought at the same time. I use it to backup Photos using Acronis TrueImage backup for WD. The highest speed of writing as displayed by the Backup software has been 1143 MBps while doing 1.1 TB full backup. More commonly for the differential backups I get around 514 MBPs (1.8GB backed up in 3.5 minutes). Compare this to the 4TB Blue NAS Drive which clocked 884 MBps for a full backup and typically 132MBps on a differential backup. Note these are not true benchmarks as they depend on a lot of factors: what's going on the PC and the disk from which the data is being read and differential backups particularly are based on what has changed so the backup software is also coming into play. One issue with this drive is that I was unable to register it on WD website and I have a case open with them.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
