Hey all, curious if anyone has any experience with the WD blue ssd. Looking at getting a 2tb 2.5" to store my games and what not for a new build. They have decent reviews on Newegg and are priced ok $220. Is there something better for cheaper in the same size or should I pull the trigger? TIA

Adata SU800 or Crucial MX500. Both of these drives are in the same price range, but has a slightly better performance than the WD Blue SSD. If you can wait these SSD go on sale a lot of time and you can get them for about 175-180.

I have a much smaller one. It seems ok so far. The machine boots in just a few seconds. That's all I can really say about it. It's the boot device in my file server -- Linux box running software raid. Fixing a machine that uses software raid for the OS can be a PITA if something breaks so I tossed in a small SSD to boot off of.
