Good value for SG buyers
17 January 2020
Works as well as one can expect. What is to me the clincher is that WD (And Seagate) honors RMA for non-SG drives in Singapore, unlike other brands line Crucial/ Micron, Samsung, etc where you probably have to ship it out to the country of purchase or Manufacture out of your own pocket since their local distributors will likely not accept them. Also, 600TBW rating (for 1TB) and a 5 year warranty doesn't hurt at all!
Plus, it is even more highly rated than the Samsung 970 Evo (non plus version). Reviews have mentioned that it consumes more power than average on idle, and thus not so good for battery life. Eh..lets face it. This either goes into a gaming machine or a desktop, battery life should be of little concern since they will mostly be plugged in anyway.
All the above, makes the asking price of less than S$180 (non heat sink, around Black Friday 2019) well worth it and a no brainer if you are in the market for a performance drive at a great value, especially so when it is marked down
