The WD Blue SN550 boasts a 2,400MB/s read speed, which is extremely fast whichever way you slice it. This makes it approximately four times faster at reading data than SATA SSD drives can manage. The capacities available range from 250GB to 1TB making this ideally sized for any role where speed is of the essence, be it games, video editing or running your operating system.
The WD Blue also features an improved thermal design to enable it to run faster for longer without the need for any further cooling.
The Western Digital Blue SN550 is now available starting at £50 for the 250GB version to £125 for the 1TB.
