WD Black SN770 1 TB review: a mid-range SSD that doesn’t fear the competition

-

Until now confined to the high end, the PCIe 4 interface is gradually encroaching on mid-range SSDs. WD’s Black SN770 series is the perfect example, with SSDs offering theoretical speeds around 5 GB – far from the big names that exceed 7 GB/s – but whose interface is still PCIe. Enough to offer better than PCIe 3 solutions, especially on random access. The use of PCIe 4 allows the use of the SN770 in Sony’s PS5 console, but this will require the acquisition of a third-party heat sink (count about fifteen euros), this SSD being deprived of it. The Black SN770 in its version of 1 TB is quite sober in its presentation. The number of components is not very high, the module in M.2 2280 format being quite bare. There’s a single 1TB 3D NAND TLC memory chip from Kioxia — WD’s partner company, formerly owned by Toshiba. This is BiCS5 memory with 112 cell layers, the most successful version to date (05/2022) from its manufacturer. been fully absorbed by WD — and bearing the sweet name of 20-82-10081-A1. We don’t know much about the technical characteristics of this controller. We just notice that it does not require cache memory to operate, the WD Black SN770 being devoid of such a chip. Write endurance is quite correct for a 1 TB SSD, with 600 TB of assured data. As with the top of the range, the manufacturer also offers a 5-year warranty, whichever comes first. Comprehensive and neat management softwareWD provides Dashboard, software for managing its SSDs. It offers a clear interface allowing you to perform several common operations quite simply. The software thus automatically checks for the presence of an update of the firmware (firmware) of the SSD and offers if necessary to install it. Simple and easy! The Tools section allows you to check the health of the SSD via SMART instructions or even securely erase the SSD, a useful option for those who may need to resell it. The application also allows real-time monitoring of temperature as well as read and write speeds. A game mode can also be activated to improve performance for gaming use. In reality, nothing magic here, just an option that deactivates energy management in order to deliver more throughput, for longer. As much to say it right away: it changes practically nothing and you don’t feel any difference. Finally, this software also allows you to download Acronis True Image in a version specific to WD. This software – which is also called Cyber ​​Protect Home Office – allows you to make secure backups of computer files and combines an antivirus. The license is valid for 5 years.
