[Amazon.ca] WD SN750 NVMe SSD 1 TB $159.99 (with DRAM)

Noticed this SSD has dropped in price. Been hovering around the 174-188 mark for a while. It has dropped to 158 in the past if you've got a time machine.
Pretty good SSD with DRAM and good enough for most tasks (unless you know you need the SN850 pcie4.0 speeds)

Only downside is that it has higher than usual idle power consumption so not the greatest for laptop use. (See https://www.anandtech.com/show/13760/th ... d-review/9)

A family favorite.

I run with a pair of these in my Dell Inspiron 5505.

Does it not run hot? Ever since I replaced the stock NVME, the fan is almost constantly on my ThinkPad. Their own software doesn't show temperatures of the drive. I ordered a 980 Pro to compare.

It runs fine, fan is on but doesn't wind at full speed.

It is a good deal for a very consistently-performing NVME SSD. The consistent "empty to full drive" write speed is very impressive, great for folks who fill up their drives all the time.

The high idle consumption may not matter much to gamers and content creators. They have to plug in anyway :)

Have one in my desktop, no complaints. Trying to decide if I should get another one, or go for a 2tb instead. Thanks for the post OP.

If you don't need it now, i'd wait to get the 2TB
If you need it now and your budget allows for it, go 2TB since nvme slots arent as plenty as SATA drives


Otherwise consider a SATA SSD depending on your needs since that's dropping pretty fast/if the price is right

I have one of these in my laptop. Haven't had any issues with heat. If your not writing/moving super large files this will be fine for any laptop

The sticker on the Samsung pro I bought was removed pretty easily and cleanly and came out in one piece. Just do it very slowly.

I didn't take the sticker off mine. It voids the warranty for one. And I believe most of these kinds of stickers helps spread the heat. I put it into my Aorus board and clamped the heatsink directly onto the sticker and don't see any issues with heat.

Great SSD. It's not the fastest out of the box, but intense workloads/full drive performance is very good on this, especially for the price.

Actually, it is one of the fastest in it's generation and very consistent.

Overall though, yes, the PCIe 4.0 drives crush it.

Nice. Gonna use this to rejuvenate a MacBook Pro. Won't realize the full speed of the drive but good enough.

If you can't maximize the speed of the drive, why not go for a cheaper drive?

The MBP controller supports 3000MB/sec so not far off. A WD Blue is only $20 less.

Maximum sequential speeds are a TERRIBLE metric for performance of a drive and if your MBP is so old that it still has a m.2, I think it's safe to assume that you aren't doing any kind of professional work that can benefit from a high performance drive anyways. Unless you need a drive now, it's pretty common to find good drives under $130.

Haha i am quite familiar with the SN750. I have owned and tested almost every drive in the generation. Actually, I have tested or owned every drive in the entire WD lineup, including the original WD Black NVMe SSD (the pre-FW update to the SN750).
