    Careful, WD (among many manufacturers) have been sneakily using lower quality QLC nand instead of the usual TLC which means lower endurance and slower speed.
    Terrible anti-consumer practice, they should have launched it under a different model instead of passing it off as the SN550
    Negging to alert potential buyers of the reduced quality and shady practice by WD

      You know its bad when even Samsung threw some shady stuff. I think only Seagate hasn't been found to have switched anything, yet.

      • no way, samsung too? pfft

      • You do realise that Samsung put the 980 Pro controller into the 970 Evo Plus. As a result, the new 970 Evo Plus performs better in the first 115GB of writes compared to the old version.

        • And about 200% worse after the first 100gb

      Linus Tech Tips actually covered this exact drive and the swap of components iirc.

    • we recently ordered and got the old version.

          they are not old stock though, MFD 21JUL2021, seems they are still making the old version. anyway it was shipped from UK

  • Damn just paid $139 for this a few days ago

  • can use it as storage

    Can you elaborate? I think I've been doing it wrong.

    • You can still use it as OS drive if you don't mind the speed (normaly use may not feel the difference), I mean it is not the fastest model like Samsung.

      Been using it to open paint cans. Didn't know it is a computer storage device.

      • That's really cool and keep using it to open cans as it won't work as a computer storage device anymore.

        • You still don't get the joke?

        • Nothing gets past this guy.

  • for those who are wondering, I just received this order and its quite old stock. . made in china 09-Apr-2021
