Looks like this one only has a 3-year warranty vs a 5-year warranty on the WDS100T2B0A.

WDBNCE0010PNC-WRSN is newest verison it does have 3D NAND on the package.

WDS100T2B0A-00SM50 is older model but still has 3D NAND on package also.

WDS100T1B0A-00H9H0 is first release that uses 2D NAND.
Then according to Best Busy's specs, this is the newest with #D Nand.

QVO has more endurance with QLC memory then these drives in 2TB-4TB which is funny.

WD Blue 3d NAND 2TB = 500TBW Endurance 250 full writes to drive
WD Blue 3d NAND 4TB = 600TBW Endurance 150 full writes to drive

Samsung 860 QVO 2TB = 720TBW Endurance 360 full writes to drive
Samsung 860 QVO 4TB = 1440TBW Endurance 360 full writes to drive
From PC WORLD testing: "When the 860 QVO runs out of cache, it's pretty depressing. The drive will clear the cache by writing the data to the main body of 4-bit NAND, but that process takes a while. I waited a good ten minutes between tests." https://www.pcworld.com/article/3...eview.html

For a couple bucks more get an Evo or MX500. Even the 3d WD Blues are fine.

QVO 1TB has 1GB DRAM and scales with each TB model which is more then WD Blue SSDs says they have 512mb.

870 QVO is releasing soon up to 8TB.

Personally, the endurance rating has always been a non-issue to me but YMMV. It really depends on what you do with your SSD. I have an old Intel 330 180GB SSD and I have used it as my main desktop boot drive for the past 8 years. Checked my usage yesterday and I have only written about 17TB in 8 years. I do the occasional gaming, audio and video editing, and my drive is typically 2/3 full. Essentially, any drive with >100TBW is sufficiently good for 99.9% out there. Also, these are essentially just marketing numbers as 99.9% of usage cases would never reach the write endurance number within the warranty period.

Firefox and Chrome writes the most to SSDs from what i see most of my writes is just from the browsers.

This or the Crucial MX500? https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-MX...077SF8KMG/ [amazon.com]

Thanks!
MX500.

From my experience, Crucial SSD's have been the most reliable. I'd avoid their BX series though; stick with the MX.

I believe MX500 is the better choice if you're willing to spend a little more.
Agree, way better choice

Thank you I corrected the post but still not sure if its dram-less as >500gb blues are with dram, still the 3D NAND is better
Thought only the "green" series were DRAM-less . Always assumed blue had it, am I wrong ?

I would spend just a few dollars more and get 3D blue instead.

AND it needs every bit of that cache, because when it the cache runs out, it's slow as molasses. 1GB is nothing. I regularly write more than 1GB. The lower cache on the WD Blue is not as relevant because it does not turn to molasses after the cache is full. QVO QLC does.

BX and the regular WD blue are comparable. 3d is better but this is the price for the regular old version. No idea why av911 replied tha, maybe he/she thinks it's the more recent 3d version.
I'm a tech luddite. I have no idea what 3D means in this context or if I need it. I'm looking for an SSD to speed up an old Mac Mini I use for work (Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook) and occasionally for basic photo and video editing. I'm sure will be a huge upgrade over the standard hard drive, but for my purposes, should I pay more for a newer 3D version? Will it be a noticeable difference?

Would this be good for an Atomos Ninja V?
