WD and Crucial ARE good options.Western Digital and Corsair have some great deals. if you purchase 2 from WD website there is an additional discount ($80 additional off for 2 of the 2TB SN850x). I plan to use both in a RAID 0 config and it should smoke (no pun intended) any overheating Gen 5 pcie SSD currently available.
WD and Crucial ARE good options.
(I still like Samsung, though. I have several)
But you should know that SSD + RAID 0 is very much not well liked around here.
No matter what drives. All the way from SATA III SSD up to Gen 5.0.
Benchmark numbers look awesome. User facing benefit, not so much.
But, if you have actual reports to the contrary, we'd ALL like to see that...
