    So I ordered this SSD as my mechanical HDD was getting on for 5 years old and had done quite a bit of work, so thought before it crashes I will upgrade. The idea being to clone my existing C: drive and at the same time speed the PC up.

    My mother board is a Z97 from ASUS and has four 6G/s SATA 3 ports. so can handle SSD drives. So before you start this process here is what I recommend.

    1. Do a ‘checkdisk’ on your old main drive because if there are any errors it (old C: drive), the drive won’t clone.
    2. If you are using the ‘Acronis true image’ program that is available free from WD then you need to buy an SSD disk that is the same capacity as your old disk or the clone wont work as it seemed to want to clone the empty bit of the old drive.
    3. If you don’t want to spend the extra £160 odd on an extra TB like me (My old disk was 2TB and the SSD is 1TB) then be prepared to pay for another program that can clone bigger drives to smaller drives like EaseUS Partition Master. (£20 odd…

    My first foray into SSDs and I am well impressed. WD is a preferred make for me, do happy with this.

    Used with a fairly new Windows 10 installation on a Ryzen based system, I found Acronis True Image 2018 was incapable of cloning the HD, so I tried the excellent Macrium Reflect – free Standard Edition, which managed the task in 30 minutes, Again I will dump Acronis!

    Well worth looking at some of the SSD usage tips on a Google search to optimise the SSD use, and get the free WD SSD Dashboard.

    Overall system performance improved significantly

    Very easy to install and rapid speeds, for anyone installing this make sure your bios settings are correct otherwise the drive will not be picked up – check the forums for your motherboard model to see what settings to change as they aren’t normally set as default (took me about 30mins to notice this)
    that’s not the fault of the SSD though in anyway

    This drive is a fantastic addition to my new build, having used mechanical drives for many years and the length of time it takes to set them up, this was a breeze. The drive is basically a small circuit board with a connection on one end you insert into the M2 socket and a semi circular cut out at the other that the screw goes through. Easy installation into MSI x370 Carbon motherboard (with Ryzen 1600X + 16gb DDR 4 ram). Installed windows 10 with usb 3 flash drive and was ready to go within 5 mins. Once fully set up, Windows now boots to login screen in less than 20 seconds. The drive is fast and responsive, however as this drive is 250gb (Windows 10 comes in at around 25gb), I have installed all my software on to this SSD and set up shortcuts to libraries for each user on to an internal SATA drive to save on space. A simple to navigate dashboard console can be downloaded from manufacturers site, this displays all the details about the drive & updates can be initiated through the…

    I have installed this SSD in my HP ENVY 15″ as the System drive, upgrading from the original 128GB facility. I did test a 1TB Crucial SSD before but it failed after about a month. I have been using a WD Blue SSD as a system drive in my desktop with no issues and decided to go WD for the laptop. What a good choice. Replicated the original with Acronis True Image and it was straight up and running in seconds. I now use the laptop more than the desk system as it is quicker and easier. It has been heavily used for 2 months and there have been no issues at all, which is what you should expect, but it is good to know. My laptop is now operating with 2TB SSD & 2TB hard drive using an Intel i7 processor and it is brilliant. Thanks Western Digital!

    Easy to install and transfer W10 Pro. But complete failure, fortunately after 11 months, so still under warranty. Gotta say though Amazon returns page difficult to navigate…..NO simple ‘Return’ button leading you through the process!!

    Great drive, great price.

    I have put a fair number of these into older laptops and SFF desktops to replace the old spinning rust drives, though beware that the Samsung 860 is sometimes cheaper and is my #1 preferred replacement drive, it has a higher TBW rating and a longer warranty, with this drive my #2.

    There is not much in it though TBH, so keep your eyes open and check the prices and if this drive is a keen price it is a no-brainer and you will not be disappointed, it offers great performance for this type of drive, 100TBW and a 3Y warranty.
