Isn't the SX8200 Pro better value?

Done, thanks.

When I first added the price alert my interest in the WD was because it was in the same ballpark as the 970 for quite a bit less money. Although I ended up settling on an HP EX920 at the time.

There does appear to be a newer model however it's ~$90 more for the same hardware and enhanced firmware.
WD Black SN750 SSD Review: A Not so Fresh Refresh

It seems pretty similar. The WD and the XPG each appear to have their own strengths. The WD seems to excel in write speeds and mixed IO whereas the XPG in read speeds and random IO speeds. I wasn't aware of the XPG until now so I suggest anyone interested in this do some research.

Depends who you ask, but performance should be similar to the 970 EVO.

And if you’ve ever tried to get SSD warranty from Samsung in Canada, you’ll stay away from Samsung.

I have the WD 500 GB version of this drive, no issues. Great performance. Yes this is the older model but it is still uber fast.

1Tb version similar to the 970 EVO speed. but for 500Gb version evo plus much fast.

I bought 970 EVO PLUS 500G from newegg 167 all in.

How does this measure up compared with the SM2262 (and EN) based SSDs like the HP EX 920, HP EX 950, and SX 8200 Pro?

I bought an HP EX920 back in Dec/Jan when I created the price alert for this WD. I really wanted the WD more for it's much faster write speeds compared to the HP. I can't remember what else it excelled in. But ultimately I wasn't willing to go much higher than $200 and grabbed the HP.

Review of Model WDS100T2X0C vs WDS100T3X0C :

WD Black SN750 vs WD Black NVMe Review
Conclusion
Well hope you enjoyed this Western Digital SN750 NVMe vs WD Black Benchmark review.
The new drives made what was the perfect drive last year, even better. No reason not to buy one of these beauties to help speed up an old machine or with a new build.
While these trail slightly in the benchmarks, but they are certainly no slouch and I would definitely pick one up if they are on a discounted price, making the small difference in performance justified, otherwise Samsung still lead the race. They are perfect to help speed up an old machine or with a new build.
I commend Western Digital for keeping them on their toes and making this amazing storage technology far more affordable than what it was less than two years ago.

How does the Black 1TB compare to the Crucial P1? Note the P1 is another $50 cheaper than the $199 at the moment.

Hi guys,

Will this work with a Lenovo Yoga C930 laptop?

It only came with 250gb of storage and I'm looking to add more.

Thanks!

This is faster and has better endurance. A better drive for more money.

Thank you. So the million dollar question. At this speed, would the average user be able to tell the difference between the 2 for Windows boot times, opening applications, day to day browsing?

I'd say usually no... even the slowest SSD vs fastest SSD is just a difference of a few seconds in loading times... I think you can only see the difference say... if you always move large amount of files, and load stuff at the same time. Otherwise, it's not like HDD vs SSD that type of difference...
