    This is aimed at WD more than Hexus but a review without pricing can never be complete. The extra endurance is nice, and may be worth a 20% oremium
    If they're charging an 80% that's a different prospect.

    The above percentages are notional to illustrate my point BTW.

    Do we trust WD not to send a decent spec drive to a reviewer and then not switch components by the time you can actually buy them, you know, because WD....

    Hi,

    We now have the pricing in dollars, which we received at exactly the same time this review went live. Chasing down the UK pricing as I write this.

    The Samsung 980 PRO 1TB was £133 yesterday so this already looks DOA.

    The stand out difference is endurance:
    980 Pro 1TB = 600 TBW
    Vs
    Red SN700 1TB = 2,000 TBW

    From Samsung's 980 Pro 1TB site https://www.samsung.com/uk/memory-st...b-mz-v8p1t0bw/
    Warranty
    5-Year Limited Warranty or 600 TBW Limited Warranty
    Red SN700 1TB column from table on Hexus
    Endurance: 2,000TBW
    Warranty: 5 Years

    Re: WD Red SN700 SSD (1TB)

    The TBW ratings seem really weird if you look at the capacities. The 1TB model has 2000TBW and the 2TB model has 2500TBW?? The 4TB is 5100TBW. Surely thet 2TB model should be 4000TBW? Usually TBW seems to scale linearly with capacity. It almost looks like the different models are different SSDs,brought under one unified naming scheme.
