Question I'm quite new to all the variants but I've gone and bought a cheap desktop. Is this a good deal with the voucher, comes out at £104.05?

Personally, I haven't used that one but we have very good reviews and specs seems great. So, imo it's a good buy.

Thanks Brutes. Appreciate the response
2x is a bit naff and it's dramless which means random reads are about the same as a SATA SSD.
Just buy Silicon Power A80 512GB NVMe drive. Which is twice faster than this and comes with DRAM cache. It's available @ Amazon for £57.

Silicon Power A80/Corsair MP510/Seagate Firecuda/Sabrent NVMe drives are actually same drive based on Silicon Motion NVMe reference SSD.

I bought a couple of these in April, and I'm currently arguing with WD over an RMA request.

Do you mind me asking why as bought one at same time and mine is working ok
I bought a pair of 500GB models for SSD cache on my NAS box. The cache kept failing, as one of the drives repeatedly stopped working.

I started an RMA process, and WD's response was that sometimes these drives don't report themselves correctly, causing the problem, but they're not actually broken. If they're not fit for purpose, then they're useless to me, but the argument continues.

I'm a big fan of WD, but this is shaping up to be the worst experience I've had with them.

I'm confused, the pins have 2 notches which means it is a sata interface, why is it listed as nvme or am I just mistaken

I had an issue with one of these drives - they ended up upgrading me to the WDS500G2X0C (3,400MB Read / 2500MB write) for free.

No it can also be a PCIe x2 interface - if it was a PCIe x4 interface then it would have one notch.
