Western Digital SiliconEdge Blue 256GB Solid State Drive Review

 

Over the past year we have looked at quite a number of solid state drives.  The surprising thing is that these drives have been from companies that are not known for storage products.  They have mainly been from memory companies like OCZ, Corsair and...

Very impressive read speeds ; Nice gunmetal casing ; Quality built ; 3-year warranty

Write speeds were a concern

I’m sure you and almost everyone you know has a favorite hard drive manufacturer and when they are building a new system they will ONLY use those types of drives.  Honestly I am more or less the same way.  As I said in the introduction of this...

Western Digital SiliconEdge Blue 128gb

 

The SSD market has grown in leaps and bounds over the past few years. It has given new names a chance to make a name for themselves. Strangely enough, the biggest names in the storage industry Western Digital and Seagate have been slow to the market,...

Western Digital’s first consumer SSD performed well in our testing. Not only did it perform well but I also found the silver drive casing to be the best looking that we have currently tested. When putting together the Cost Pre GB chart I was surprised...

Western Digital get in the SSD game

A good effort from the HD maker ; Decent all-round throughput

WD has prioritised reliability ; Overpriced given the performance

Great speed

Died after 2 years

Nothing but slowness on this drive

 

Man...this drive is just awful. I put this in a laptop that was a few years old and it just barely running faster than the spindle drive I replaced. I went to copy a few GB of files from one directory on the drive to another and get a under 6 MB/s...

It's discontinued

Slooooooooow

Consumer review by:

Failed after 2 months

 

I purchased an SSD for the speed and what I thought would be more reliability. I personally have never lost a SATA or an IDE in my 20 years of owning PC's, ironic that my first is one of these. Owned a PC repair shop for the last 15+ years and the...

Price- got it from a Shellshocker Deal. Despite not being the fastest SSD on the market I was thrilled to finally replace my slower 7200rpm sata

Like the last poster, mine failed with a BSOD and then an ecc error. Unrecognizable after that. What was really annoying was Western Digital's RMA not allowing SSD's to be done as an advance shipment. I had to buy another drive while I wait for them to...
