Great drive for the short time i had it.

Pros: I used this drive as a gaming drive, when my system would recognize it, it was super fast.

Cons: My laptop would stop recognizing the drive after acouple of restarts and cool downs it would show back up just to get lost again, I dont know if heat played a roll in it since it was in a gaming laptop that gets hot.

Other Thoughts: Newegg warranted it out for me with very little issue, I also never seem to have any luck with WD.

Good while it lasted.

Pros: Was a nice speedy M.2 driver perfect for my ITX server build.

Cons: It died after only 5 months of use.

Other Thoughts: Sent for RMA but my server is down till its replaced, buying a Samsung since it will get here before the Advanced RMA even will.

5/ 5
a threat to time space fabric.

Pros: FAST.FAST.FAST!
EASY SET UP WITH ACRONIS TRUE IMAGE fromt he WD site.
My load times in game are so fast, that the wait music only gets to play a handfull of notes before i spawn.
at the windows log in screen in about 5 seconds.in 10 seconds you can be logged into windows and starting other things. probably 3 or 4 seconds faster without a windows password.
Installed in a laptop can add 45 mins to an hour to battery life , i can now finnish avengers Infinity war on a full charge.
just Prepare to be SPOILED by speed.

Cons: if its your first time mirroring a drive, watch a video, consult a friend or guru, i spent a week before i figured out how to get the ball rolling (which was pretty easy once i figured it out) i reccomend very strongly to take the path laid out by WD with their acronis software. this is the most fluid way to complete the install. if something seems wrong check your device manager for the right drive. if its showing but things arent going smooth. youre probably just doing it wrong.

Other Thoughts: ive seen this nvme called the best M.2. for gaming. i would agree without hesitation. but get the 500 gig. its worth every penny. the 250 is a great value too but
6+ months no failures no blue screens and no loss of data.
PERFECT.

Nice and fast, Best reliability scores! I have never had a western...

Pros: Nice and fast. Userbenchmark says it is pretty fast! Best bang for your buck in my humble opinion.
Best reliability scores! I have never had a western digital drive die, EVER! I have an old WD 250 mb hard drive that I use as my fastest hard drive, then a storage hard drive, then a critical files back-up, then it eventually got retired. It still works 25 years later! Nuff said!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Great price.

Horrible

Pros: nothing! doesn't work with my MSI gaming Pro X99 board. I update my Bios on my MB, did research online to troubleshoot this issue and did everything suggested by others... nothing worked.

Cons: It seems I'm not the only one having issues with this M.2... Even with bios setting PCIe supporting this M.2, it shows on boot order but not in general drive information in bios. Same thing when I tried in windows. it shows in drive manager after updating with a hotfix KB2990941 for NVME, but not in Drive order on my computer.

Other Thoughts: Can't return this to newegg because of the 30 days have already expired waiting on other parts for my build so hopefully i learn my lesson here "never buy WD products to save some money."

Slower then regular SSD. Dont buy | WD Support is a joke

Pros: - Goes into NVMe slot
- 1400 MB/s read speed

Cons: - Write speed around 150 MB/s for 2GB file using ATTO
- WD Support is non-existent. It took them 2 weeks to reply to my email with just asking what is my system. Havent heard back since then
- Drive doesnt come close to Samsung SATA SSD quality regarding performance and latencies.
- Feels like a USB3.0 flash drive in NVMe form factor
-

Other Thoughts: Never going to buy an WD SSD products, just stay with samsung and pay premium for not having and headaches. Best support is when you dont need support for the product.
