That was definitely WD busy setting themselves up for the inevitable decline in spinning rust sales. WD have put out some very respectable NVMe SSD's. I almost went for one but opted for a Samsung 1TB EVO instead (playing safe). Having had some issues with some WD Reds recently in my NAS I opted for some Seagate's as replacements. They offer more bang for the buck and have 3 year warranty on their OEM drives. A friend of mine also had some WD Reds fail within days of mine. None of which bodes well for the future of WD, especially if they have massive debts to service. R&D will be the first casualty if they are bogged down with debt. Isn't there some connection between WD and Toshiba and HGST as well?
