Once you upgrade to SSD storage, you'll never look back. The install times are amazing, and honestly it might be worth it just to watch that 60GB game get written to your drive as fast as it possibly can. These drives are a luxury for sure, but I'd say go for it if you can. Especially with the deals available right now. I'm all-SSD for my storage now and haven't had any issues, unlike spinning drives of old that have failed on me occassionally.
The WD Black has transfer speeds up to 3100 MB/s, which means improved load times on everything you write to it. Compare that to a SATA SSD like the popular WD Blue (opens in new tab) which only has load times up to 560 Mb/s. It's so fast. Customize your gaming PC and maintain peak performance with the sleek design that can support a heatsink (opens in new tab).
Unlike SATA drives, the M.2 drive installs directly onto your motherboard, so you'll want to make sure you have a motherboard that supports an M.2 2280 drive. WD also has exclusive software, the WD Black SSD Dashboard, you can use to customize your experience and maintain your drive. Get the most out of your SSD by tweaking it based on how you work and play.
If this WD option is not for you, be sure to take a look at our list of the best SSDs for Windows PCs for some other choice picks.
