Pros: Extremely fast - over 2500mbs in sequential read. Loading times are near-instant.
Drive was automatically recognized by BIOS and had no problems installing Windows 10 to the drive.
Amazing that there's 512GB in a package the size of a stick of gum.
Overall Review: Ensure that you've updated your BIOS to the latest version. My motherboard (MSI Z170A Gaming M7) needed to be patched. Prior to the patch I was only getting 1500mbs sequential read in benchmarks, and drive was operating at PCIe x2 speeds. After the patch the speeds jumped to 2500mbs and operated at PCIe x4 speeds
Pros: I have four of these drives in my Mac Pro, and I must say these are the best mechanical drives I've ever had. Aside from the unbelievable capacity, the performance is significantly better than nearly all drives on the market. This drive even outperforms WD Raptors in some benchmarks.
Overall Review: Best data drive
Comments: One of the best CRTs out there, and at a great price. Considering purchasing another one in afew weeks for my other computer. Sharp graphics, fast refresh rates, plus Viewsonic quality.
