[Newegg] Western Digital SN550 1tb SSD nvme M.2

I just can't get a break, this SSD has a biggest discount than prime day and it's not even Black Friday yet -_-

For those of you who held back, this is a real good deal for a1tb

Yes, I do think so. But don't take my word for it. I just think so.

Is this compatible with PS5? Last time I checked there was not an approved list, mostly for size constraints.

I don't think so. PS5 requires PCIe 4 SSD and this one is not fast enough.

Newegg has a "Return by January 2021" for this product.
Worst case, you paid for it now and found a cheaper deal later and have to return it.

If you're holding out for a faster stick, I recently read a review where they compared HDD, SSD and faster drives.
While there was an obvious huge boost to switching to an SSD, there was almost no or very little further improvement when using a faster drive.
This doesn't necessarily mean you're wasting your money it just means that game companies need to reprogram their games to take advantage of the newer technology.

Also, this drive comes with a 5 year warranty.

I just built a new machine and I have to say, having 2x 1TB M.2 drives has been great, especially from a cabling perspective. Now I only have 3 cables running from my PSU - MB, CPU, and GPU. Add that to the cable from the case and it’s a clean setup.

Anyway I got these very drives (comparing them to the 970 series) and I don’t regret it at all. My games still load fast and when I need documents they open fast as well.

I mean... I guess... I don't really see how a couple of cables are of any practical concern. I know some people are into making their computers cosmetically appealing with glass walls and lighting... But I would focus on speed, size etc first.

With respect to documents, I think you would have been perfectly fine with SATA speeds. These higher speeds are useful if you need to backup 100gb quickly on a daily basis. Or if you are running massive models on big data locally or something like that.

Anyone knows if there's an improvement in load times if I use this to store ps4 games on the ps5 and use this as an external storage or im better off with a standard external hdd?

What scenarios would the SN750 be preferred over the SN550? Wondering if it's a good idea to consider the SN750 as well.
