Buying a Gen 4 SSD? Why the WD Black SN850 is the ONE for You

Buying a Gen 4 NVMe SSD is always a tough choice and the WD Black SN850 makes it easy. After testing the Samsung 980 PRO and the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus I decided to give this SN850 Gen 4 drive a try. Is it for everyone? Yes, yes it is. Super fast and super reliable.

Comparing it to the Samsung 980 PRO and the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus, which both had caching issues, this WD Black SN850 managed to out perform large transfer rates in a reliable way. This video goes into the details of the SN 850 performance and why its the one you should buy.

Install and Testing WD Black SN850 NVME SSD 2TB First Impressions

WD SN850 NVEM Gen 4 SSD Drive fresh install and first impressions. This video walks us through the physical install and of course a few tests to see how this matches up with the Sabrent Rocket Plus NVME Gen 4 drive. The Western Digital has had to play catch up in this space and the last few years, although they had their ups and downs, seem to have hit it out of the park with their Black Series drives. My first impressions with some tests should give us a good direction before we start to really test this 2TB drive.
