When I order my 2.5Gbe PCIe adapter on Amazon, I ordered Westen Digital Blue SN570 1TB at the same time. It is US$57.99  plus tax when I purchased it. Now it is even cheaper, only $52.99.

Please be noticed that it is a 1TB NVMe SSD. I need it for my Proxmox VE machine. Before the upgrade, I am using one 240GB Crucial SATA SSD for the system, and a WD 1TB 2.5″ HDD for images and backups. I want to replace them with this 1TB WD Blue SN570 1TB NVMe SSD.

Let’s have a look at it from the box to the inside.

SN570 1TB box

It shows clearly on the box, M.2 2280, NVMe SSD, and 5 years warranty, 3500MB/s read.

SN570 1TB back

Look at the back of the box. Not much to say, the model is WDS100T3B0C.

SN570 1TB Front look of the it.

The front view of this SN570 clearly only has one memory chip. The back is nothing on it. It is made in Malaysia.
