Final Thoughts

We have to say, Western Digital's newest caught us completely off guard. One flash package and no DRAM? Beating direct competitors and SSDs that are considered out of its league? Impressive is an understatement.

A quick look at our user experience rankings and it is easy to see why we have crowned the WD Blue SN550 our value champion. User experience is what truly matters, not some insane sequential number that grabs attention. We believe that our new user experience ranking is the most accurate way of ranking performance that actually matters and should be closely looked at before you make your next SSD purchase.

At this time, for the money spent, you cannot get a better user experience than the WD Blue SN550 is serving up. Add to that the fact that this is a TLC SSD with far better endurance than similarly priced QLC SSDs, and we have a winner.

Western Digital's Blue SN550 1TB SSD is TweakTown approved and highly recommended.
