Pros: - More RAM, what else? :P

Cons: - Haven't noticed any.

Overall Review: Quite simply, its just more RAM. It was easy to install, and I've been using it for a while now and encountered no problems at all. I even disabled my page filing so I no longer need to write memory to the disk now that I have a total of 32GB of RAM.

Works

Pros: Windows 10 used to take 10 minutes to boot up on my 500GB 7200 RPM HDD and had some issues with bad sectors even. Now with this drive, Windows 10 boots up in less than 15 seconds. Thats going from the time I click "reboot" and waiting for the full shutdown sequence.

Cons: None that I have found, other than the normal SSD thing of limited number of read/writes, of which I have not encountered yet.

Overall Review: So far, it works amazingly. I installed Ark Survival to the SSD and the game loads up faster than ever. Instead of waiting 10-15 minutes to load up a modded server, it takes 5 or so. Which isn't the fault of the SSD, its just the game devs don't know how to optimize it any. Otherwise Ark would load a LOT faster on the SSD. It did improve my loading speed by 3 times however, when switching from my HDD to this SSD.
