Any one using the WD Sn850 nvme drive? Trying to decide on a os drive for Alder Lake when it comes out. I'm trying to decide on either the WD SN850 or if I should just go with a Samsung 980 Pro. Either the 2Tb or 1Tb size.

I am using an SN750 drive. I like the drive management software that came with it.

The Samsung vs WD drive debate is just that. They perform nearly identically.

If you can, get the 2TB version of either drive, as the 2TB versions are a bit faster than the 1TB versions. If I was in the market for another NVMe drive right now, I would get either a 2TB E18 based drive such as the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus, or a 2TB 980 Pro or SN 850. I would likely make my choice based on prices/deals at the time.
