The Western Digital PC SN740 NVMe SSD was introduced by Western Digital Corp to suit the special needs of the hybrid workforce and to improve the computing experience.
Western Digital is a data infrastructure leader, driving the innovation required to help customers gather, preserve, access, and convert an ever-increasing variety of data.
The Western Digital PC SN740 NVMe SSD uses NVMe Technology to accelerate computing with exceptional PCIe Gen4 performance and sequential read speeds of up to 5,150MB/s1 (1TB – 2TB2 models), which is 50 percent faster than the previous generation SN730 SSD. It has advanced security features, such as optional TCG Opal 2.01, TCG Pyrite 2.0, and ATA password, that serve to improve data security.
Furthermore, it is thin, light, and low power, allowing you to multitask more on a single charge with a single-sided M.2 2230. When compared to the SN730, the SN740 provides up to 45 percent greater time between charges. The free Western Digital® SSD Dashboard helps monitor the drive’s health, available space, temperature, and more. It comes with built-in support, allowing you to work with added confidence and peace of mind.
This dependable drive from a reputable company comes with a 5-year limited warranty and is built with superior thermal management technology that helps ensure constant performance.
The new SN740 NVMe SSD highlights Western Digital’s strengths in developing innovations that allow customers to unlock the potential of data. It features a DRAM-less architecture and leverages the company’s in-house SSD controller design, BiCS5 3D NAND, firmware development, and vertical integration.
