Analyzing the data obtained on our tests, the first conclusion is that the WD Blue 1,000 GiB maintains the same performance with compressible and uncompressible data on reading and writing operations, which is great.

Compared to the HyperX Savage 480 GiB, the WD Blue 1,000 GiB was, on average, a little slower with compressible data, but a little faster with uncompressible data. This is a good thing for the WD Blue, which has not the intention to be a high-end SSD.

So, we conclude the WD Blue offers an excellent cost/benefit ratio, since it is one of the most affordable models with this capacity, and offers a performance level similar to performance-aimed models.
