First WD SSD drive I have bought - PC bios time shows as 6.1s in Task Manager - The Wife is happy so i am happy.
I really like WD and their products. The only downside compared to the WD Blue SSD is that the green one has lower write speed. Since this is used as the drive OS it doesnt matter.
Great SSD, windows boot time is AMAZING on this and i have no issues at all.
To be honest, this is quite the star of the show for me, aside from the CPU and GPU. Boots times aren't as different to my old system, because of Windows 10's fast boot thingy, but startup programs open instantly as you login, whereas it would take a minute on my old HDD.
Everything just feels snappier. Opening Firefox takes a second instead of ten seconds, going from folder to folder in Windows Explorer without any hiccups, and loading up a city in Cities Skylines in a minute instead of five minutes.
Writes times, however, are quite a low point. They're no more faster than my HDD's write speed. But that doesn't matter, since I don't write to my SSD that often. At least the reads are that good for such a cheap drive. c:
Nice SSD from WD. Enough space for me and my games. What should I say, it's just a good piece of hardware.
Using this as my boot drive. No issues. Solid quality from Western Digital, as expected.
