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.
