Western Digital has been in the market for quite some time now. They have produced great quality products when it comes to storage. Continuing the tradition, they recently launched SN570 NVMe SSD, which is the upgraded version of SN550 that came out 1.5 years ago. We got to play around with it and this is our WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSD review, which you should not miss if you are in the market to purchase a new SSD.
Design-wise the WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSD is like any other flat chip SSD available in the market. It can easily fit into any compatible laptop or PC since it does not have a dedicated heat sync on it. Installing it is quite easy and one can easy plug and screw it on any compatible motherboard. We reviewed the 1TB version, but it is available in 250, 500GB and 2TB versions as well.
So, let’s move to its performance. Western Digital claims that the WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSD can read up to 3,500 MB/s and write up to 1,200MB/s, which is approximately what we got. On the Disk Mark bench, it gave us 3,487MB/s of read speed and a whooping 1,291MB/s write speed. We were able to transfer files in a jiffy and installing a fresh pair of Windows 11 on it was taken up as a breezy challenge. Actually, it was not a challenge at all.
Compared to 2.5-inch Kingston SSD, which we use in our test PC, this one is 2.5X faster. This meant the 4K videos that took 3 hours to render were now rendering in under 1.5 hours for us (since CPU and GPU performance remained the same). Apps open faster, Windows boots swiftly and gaming performance also becomes more efficient.
With the WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSD the company also gives SSD dashboard software as a bundle, which enables you to always keep an eye on the SSD’s health and performance. So, it all boils down to one final question. Is the WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSD 1TB worth buying at Rs 9,300 (approx., price might vary from city to city)? Let us put it this way, if you are planning to build a new PC or are upgrading an old one and want super-fast performance, then go for it without a doubt.
In case you have less budget, then you might want to consider the 250GB or 500GB version. But all of them will give your old PC/Laptop a new life, or can bring everything from picture editing tools to video editing software to run super-fast in your new PC. So that makes up for our WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSD review. If you want to know anything more about it, let us know in the comments below and we will be happy to answer.
