WD Blue SN500 review: Incredible value for money

SSD prices may have been falling over recent months, but adding a super fast NVMe SSD to your PC is still one heck of an expensive upgrade, especially if you're after something like our best gaming SSD champion, the Samsung 970 Evo. A 250GB stick of Evo goodness will set you back around £80 / $85 these days, with prices pretty much doubling if you…

WD Black SN750 review: So close to the Samsung 970 Evo, yet so far

For reasons I cannot fathom and that are probably lost to the bowels of their marketing department, Western Digital have decided their high-performance Black line of NVMe SSDs were in need of a face lift for 2019, because apparently gum stick-sized storage drives don't look 'gamer-y' enough already. The result of their somewhat baffling nip and tuck is the Black SN750, which I think you'll…

WD Black 3D NVMe SSD review: Bringing the fight to the Samsung 970 Evo (sort of)

When Western Digital announced their brand-new Black 3D NVMe SSD at the beginning of April, it looked like it might finally bring some much needed competition to the all-powerful Samsung 960 Evo and potentially cause a late-game upset in our [block id="604473" title="Best gaming SSD"]> rankings.

WD My Passport SSD review: Good external storage that doesn’t cost the earth

Having a fast SSD inside your PC is all well and good, but they're pretty useless if you want to transport large files to a different machine for a bit or back stuff up for safe keeping. In times like this, you need an external SSD, and today I'm taking a look at the WD My Passport SSD. Portable storage devices have, of course, been around…

WD Blue 3D NAND review: Better SSD for big workloads

When Western Digital first released its Blue line of SSDs, it's probably fair to say that they didn't really make much of an impact. Not in the face of the mighty Samsung 850 Evo, at least, which still tops several [block id="604473" title="Best gaming SSD"] lists (including our own) even today. Now, thankfully, WD's finally jumped on the 3D NAND bandwagon, making its latest Blue…
