Died within an hour 5/8/2020 2:04:16 PM

Pros: - it’s small?

Cons: - died within an hour of use.

Overall Review: Unfortunately I can’t recommend this one; however, it could be that I just got a dud. It happens. I didn’t have time for the RMA process so I had to replace it with a different solution.

No issues so far 4/16/2020 11:05:03 AM

Pros: Easy to install, works fine, saves a lot of space, is far FAR faster than an HDD. My PC boots in like 5 seconds.

Cons: It's not the biggest size, so I wouldn't use this for a LOT of raw storage. I am using it to install Windows 10 on and store basic frequently used files and games.

Overall Review: Very affordable, and runs far faster than an HDD. Meager storage size for mass storage but works great if you have multiple storage options like I do. Other SDDs probably run faster but if you compare to HDD this is much faster

Pros: Boots quick, works well in raid mode

Overall Review: Works perfectly as described. In raid mode, works as one drive - no lag. These Helix in any size are a great deal.

Excellent so far 4/4/2020 6:08:53 PM

Pros: - Amazing performance @ this price.

Cons: - Just installed so can't speak to the longevity of this product but I guess we'll see.

Overall Review: It's an NVME SSD. Based on reviews it seems like a lot of people are having issues with this but no issues for me so far. Time will tell I suppose but right now I'm happy. It's performing as advertised. Definitely an upgrade from my old SATA 3 SSD.

Better than I expected 3/12/2020 8:47:27 AM

Pros: Works amazing. I'm not very familiar with NVME storage but it is absolutely better than a normal HDD. From off to boot in under 20 seconds. I love it

Cons: No real cons to speak of

Overall Review: Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for great performance on a budget
