    Reliability... could they ever put this into tests in this jungle of SSD's?

    I mean there is quite a bunch of brands out there the inside know that would avoid due to they fault out sooner than expected.

    AFAIK,WD warranty is still UK based. Lots of other companies such as Samsung and Adata,are EU located IIRC.

    I have one of these, probably the best value SSD you can buy if you just need it for gaming, price fluctuates on them, I have seen them as low as £105 on amazon, £109.99 today.

    Nice review; I'm tempted to get one of these as an OS/Game drive when I next upgrade. Seems decent for the price, and 600TBW seems very good too. I'd prefer a Samsung drive for OS, but the cheapest 1TB NVMe they do is much higher in price.
