My Gen 4 NVMe SSD All Drive Upgrade Experience

My gen 4 NVMe SSD all drive upgrade experience has been nothing short but wonderful. I tested several drives before purchasing all WD SN850 Gen 4 Pcie 4 drives. While thinking through my workflow I purchase 2 x 1TB and one 2 TB drives. In my work flow I am able to transfer data at a high rate that I am more than happy to see each and every day that I work on my PC.

In this video I review the gen 4 upgrade, the pros and cons I am experiencing along with the questions you should be asking before upgrading.

    hey bro do you know a good pci gen 4.0 x4 adapter for nvme drives for a smaller price? I just bought a ASUS ProArt B550-CREATOR and see it only have one m.2 gen 4 port, and would like to use the 2nd pci express port for an adapter to use 4.0 speeds. Bought 2 sn 850 2tb drives and want to use them both full speeds.. Your videos is amazing btw you deserve millions of subscribers, i actually thought you would have 100s of thousands of subs your quality is too goooood…

    Nice review and very informative ?. Thanks for addressing brining up these PCIe and NVMe/M.2 concerns and case scenarios. I’m an Asus motherboard user and also have WD-Black. I believed at one point that my motherboard was faulty, but unfortunately didn’t notice that until I finally used the secondary M.2 bay. Now I know I’m not crazy and can plan for when upgrading my setups/rigs. Keep the good work man. ??
