The previous version is 512GB. This is newest version because it is 500GB. WD intentionally made the size different to be able to tell them apart. Google the part number WDS500G2X0C.

Simplistically, m.2 is the physical slot connection. Pcie and SATA are data transfer protocols with pcei being faster. the m.2 SATA would be equivalent to plugging an ssd hd to SATA port the advantage only being the smaller form factor.

Wow, I was able to nab one. Cheaper than the 970 EVO I paid $180 after unidays + cb. Putting this baby in my laptop and the 970 can overheat all it wants in my desktop!

Hey there, as a 970 owner this caught my eye. Is there a over-heating issue with them?
Edit: mines in a desktop too, although it sits under a 1070ti

It's in-line with other NVMe drives, but the WD Black has better efficiency in most cases so you'll get marginally better battery life on laptops. The 970 and Black should have similar thermal performance in a desktop.

I'm a little confused when it comes to NVMe SSDs and googling hasn't provided much clarification. My motherboard has two m.2 slots, one PCIE and the other is SATA. I currently have the PCIE slot occupied by the WD Black NVMe SSD. My mobo states that if I were to occupy my second standard PCIE slot (as I would in an SLI GPU setup), it would disable the m.2 PCIE slot. Could I then move that NVMe SSD to the m.2 SATA slot?

More misinformation, no intent there - simply a different over-provisioning scheme

This seem like a good deal for an ssd, but how it different from the .samsung 860 EVO 500GB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-76E500B/AM) ? Seem to me the samsung ssd go up to 6k mb per sec and 50$ cheaper than this one. Im currently building a pc and hesitated to choose one Frown ?
