[Amazon.ca] WD_Black SN750 2TB NVMe SSD - $289.99

WD_Black SN750 2TB NVMe Internal Gaming SSD - Gen3 PCIe, M.2 2280, 3D NAND - WDS200T3X0C

Seems like a recent price drop. I honestly don't know enough to comment on this drive.

Also on Newegg

Thanks @rvs007 for the price update.

Any issues with this being used as a boot drive?

I'm using the 1tb version as boot drive, not a single issue. According to some reviews, it runs hot, but mine's under a cooling block from the mobo, and the temperatures seem to be normal to me.

After what happened to SN550, I started being skeptical about WD.

Will this be good as a boot drive for a laptop?

I have the drive and can't recommend it for laptop if you are on the go, I put it in my desktop instead since I won't have to worry about the battery. This one consumes more power than other NVME options: See here

A very fast drive, but as someone stated, it runs hotter than others models.
For me it's running about 10c hotter than a XPG SX8200 Pro) at idle on a Asus ROG X570 VIII Hero.

Are NVME SSDs good for converting into external drives using an enclosure?

Yes and no, if you're running Windows/MacOS you should be good to hook them up and use them, but from personal experience they can be a hit or miss with smart TVs (e.g. Hisense Android TV and some random older Samsung smart TV were fine, Toshiba not so much) and Chromebook/CromeOS makes mine run hot and doesn't recognize it making it a portable toaster at best.

In that case, would it be better getting something like this?

the 1TB NS750 regularly goes down to $150 or less.
That's 30 minutes away, I'll be there in 10.

For less than $150, 1TB SN750 is hot! No pun intended.

They swapped the components so that the newer version has slower sustained write speeds.

The key is to buy from Amazon and Staples at the moment because people are reporting getting the older superior version. You can confirm it via the firmware.
