Western Digital Starts Offering WD Blue 4TB-SSD

Post by Abula » Tue Apr 30, 2019 7:40 am

Nothing new here aside from a second company, previously Samsung has been offering on their 860Pro/860Evo/860QVO, is releasing a 4TB version, compared to Samsung latest offering, this one uses TLC instead of QLC, so its more like 860Evo, but the pricing seems high and still not a viable storage option for the average user, that said, i think two companies starting compete in this amount of storage will slowly drive pricing down, hope to see Crucial releases something to compete here as well.

Nice to see more higher volume SSDs. The current glut in RAM and Flash chips will also help drive pricing down.
