Home Reviews Storage Drives WD Black SN750 vs Samsung 970 EVO vs WD Black M.2 NVMe...

WD released their new Black SN750 NVMe SSD early this year. It’s the successor to last year’s WD Black (2018), our review here. The WD Black 2018 was a fast and good NVMe SSD, able to compete with Samsung 970 EVO. But it wasn’t enough, thus the company released the SN750, an improved version of the WD Black. You’re probably interested in finding out which one is the faster or best M.2 NVMe SSD; WD or Samsung’s? Today we are going to check out and review the WD Black SN750 and compare it to its predecessor the WD Black. We are also going to compare the SN750 vs Samsung’s 970 EVO, its main competitor. So if you are in the market looking for a really good and fast M.2 NVMe SSD, stick around and continue reading our WD Black SN750 review below.

WD Black SN750 Review Comparison

WD Black SN750 Review Comparison – vs WD Black and Samsung 970 EVO

The WD Black SN750 is the company’s second generation high performance M.2 NVMe SSD, offering capacities of up to 2TB. It’s an ideal storage solution for laptops and desktop PCs and can be used as an OS drive, game drive or work storage drive. It features the company’s own 3D NAND technology, firmware and controller.

On paper, the WD Black SN750 offers sequential speeds of up to 3,470 MB/s read and up to 3,000 MB/s of sequential write performance. It also offers up to 515,000 of random-read and up to 560,000 random-write IOPs that allows the SN750 to manage multi-threaded applications and data-intensive environments.

Like I said in the opening statement, the SN750 is more of the refinement and improvement of the WD Black 2018. By the way, the WD Black 2018 is also known as SN700. As you can see SN700 to SN750 isn’t a huge leap, but it suggests fine tuning the drive to deliver improved performance.

Below you can see the complete specifications of the SN750 NVMe SSD series.

WD Black SN750 vs WD Black vs Samsung 970 EVO Specifications

WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD Specifications

The WD Black SN750’s packaging is pretty much straight forward. It’s now all black, compared to the black and white themed box of its predecessor. Aside from four different capacities, the SN750 is also available in two variants, the one with a heat sink and another with a sleek EK heatsink.

We currently don’t have an SN750 with an EK heatsink. It’s going to be available on a later date, perhaps together with the 2TB variant. I’m hoping that we’ll be able to have the chance to review the SN750 with heatsink to see if the heatsink helps in terms of performance, or it’s more of an aesthetics. It does look very cool though.

Below is the test setup I used to test and benchmark the SN750. On the next few pages let’s check out how the WD Black SN750 performs vs the Samsung 970 EVO and it’s predecessor the WD Black. I have also added a high performance HDD and SSD drives for comparison and to show you just how fast these NVMe SSD drives are.

WD Black SN750 vs WD Black vs Samsung 970 EVO – Test Setup


In testing the WD Black SN750, WD SN700 a.k.a Black and Samsung 970 EVO M.2 NVMe SSDs, I am using an MSI MEG Z390 ACE motherboard powered with an Intel Core i7-8700K CPU. It’s the same system I used to test and benchmark the other components we review for consistency. Below are the rest of the system’s specifications:

Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64bit
Motherboard: MSI MEG Z390 ACE
Processor: Intel Core i7-8700K
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i RGB Platinum

Graphics card: MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Gaming X
Storage Drives: WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD 1TB
Power Supply: Seasonic 850W Prime Titanium
