Product was as described and received, works well
Pros: Good performance for the money. Would normally have ordered an i7, but as this was an upgrade on a 6 year old computer so that it could run Windows 11, it's performance was going to exceed the existing i7 anyways -- and was already happy with the older CPU's performance.
Cons: None noted.
Overall Review: Would recommend for those looking for an Alder Lake processor but not looking for cutting edge performance.
Went into an external enclosure -- works perfectly
Pros: - Needed an NVMe drive to leverage for my wife's 2017 iMac, which due to the Apple OS upgrades, had become nearly useless, taking more then 5 minutes to fully boot. Added this drive to an external thunderbolt enclosure and now boot from this drive -- boots in 10 seconds now!
Cons: - Now yet observed.
Overall Review: Great product -- great price.
