Missed the Black Friday deal at £129.72, but this is the cheapest I've seen it since then. Been hovering at around £150 the last couple of weeks.

Supposed to be one of the faster drives. Mine should be here tomorrow, so will find out!
Hottttttt
If only it was nvme.
Nvme pci drives are much faster if your laptop supports it for similar price.

Boot times are the same and you'll only notice the difference when handling huge files. So unless you're actually doing something that requires or could benefit from a NVME, you're wasting money. A standard sata or m.2 SSD is plenty fast.

They're better than the Crucial SATA SSD's but not as good as the Samsung 860 EVO ones (in my opinion). Specs for the WD Blue 1TB model: 545MB/s read, 525MB/s write, endurance rating of 400TBW and 1,75 million hours MTBF.

Personally I'd go for a PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe SSD though if your M.2 slot(s) can handle that. Would be a waste of bandwidth to occupy it with a 'slower' device

No they have different interface. The sata interface was made for moving platters. NVME only exists because SATA is so slow.

SATA wasn’t made for moving platters exactly. It’s an interface that’s been used with both the traditional power+data cable setups and also now the M.2 slot.

The M.2 slots, depending on your hardware can either use the SATA or NVMe (PCI-E) interface. As these modules have the option for SATA modules but with the M.2 connector still, people get confused as to which exactly is correct for their systems but it’s all just a little bit more complicated now it would appear.
If your set up is compatible, get the Samsung 970 evo or pro. It's about 7 times faster, I got the 500gb version for £90
Will it work to upgrade a Dell XPS 9570?
Can this be put in a caddy as an external drive to boot up Mac ?
