Not so hot:
http://www.tomshardware.com/revie...924-3.html

"The Black PCIe is not the high-performance product we expected. Instead of diving in with a drive designed to compete with the Samsung 960 Series, WD went for the low hanging fruit and targeted the Intel 600p and other entry-level NVMe SSDs. The Black PCIe is only a "high-performance" SSD compared to other WD products. WD apparently didn't take the rest of the industry into account during the branding process."

I'm guessing they're clearing stock? WD just announced the new Black drives that are significantly faster.

They suck compared to the 2018 versions. Still better than SATA but not great for PCIe.

The 2018 version is comparable to the Samsung 960 Evo. These are more like Intel 760p.

There is a reason why they only advertise read speed and not write

Consider the Evo and Lambo compared to this.

Got this drive from Newegg only to realize that these drives are horrible, poor performance, riddled with heat issues, they're using NVMe protocol but get SATA performance.

Printed my RMA will send it back to Newegg tomorrow!

I was one of the SDers who picked this drive for $127 with the Amazon warehouse deals 20% last week. I wouldn't have jumped on it for this price. Still wondering if it's actually worth it at $127.
