Western Digital WD Black NVMe SSD Review

SSD Dashboard Software
WD does have their own SSD Dashboard software that you can download for the drive. On the main apge it will show you the model of drive you have installed, the firmware version, a capacity graph, volumes, life remaining, temperature, and interface speed.


Moving over to the performance tab we can see a live graph that shows the real-time transfer speed or transfer IOPS.


Under tools you have the ability to easily update the firmware, secure erase the drive, see the S.M.A.R.T. info and more.


Under settings you can check for updates for the app, change a few options, and get e-mail alerts.
