Great budget nvme m.2 ssd, all time low in quite a while.
What is the difference between the old and new gen?
older should be better iirc
old = SN550
new = SN570
beware of the part swap with SN550 which makes writing speed slower after some time, if you are lucky, you will get old stock (SN550 old has old and new versions which is not mentioned in the listing)

They're actually different tiers SN550 is QLC/Value while SN750 is TLC/Enthusiast. The SN550 has had some issues with WD part swapping though, see https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2021/08/silent-changes-to-we...
that is what I meant, in this Amazon listing
old gen = Western Digital WDS500G2B0C Blue SN550 500GB NVMe SSD 2400MB/s 1750MB/s R/W 300TBW 300K/240K IOPS M.2 2280 PCIe Gen 3 1.7M hrs MTTF 5yrs wty
new gen = Western Digital 500GB WD Blue SN570 NVMe Internal Solid State Drive SSD - Gen3 x4 PCIe 8GB/s, M.2 2280, Up to 3,500 MB/s - WDS500G3B0C
@bazingaa: oh my bad, you're very much correct. Wd's naming is getting crazy, this and the SN750SE is doing my head in
He's talking about sn570 buddy not sn750. sn570 is the new successor to sn550
You get to select Old Gen/New Gen version in the listing. New is showing OOS.
1 TB is $120
So this thing any good?
I have the old version and it's perfectly fine as a boot and games drive, but I can't speak for the new version and idk how you'd check which one you're getting.
So tempted to hit the "place order" button, even though I don't need it.
Please tell ne difference between Old & New Gen.
Will this fit inside the acer nitro 5 laptop?
yes, the one from HN rite?
Though looks like this is $76, might wait for a 870 samsung deal
