Great for Linux gaming system

Pros: Works perfect in Asrock B450M Steel Legend mobo
Fast, but I haven't benchmarked it yet, don't feel a need to

Cons: It uses TLC instead of MLC, so maybe won't last as long, dunno

Overall Review: Will buy more...

All I need

Pros: Quicker than SATA drives.

Cons: Looks bad.

Overall Review: Got this for my OS / main programs on a Ryzen 3000 upgrade. The M.2 drive on my last computer is going in to work with the rest of the core components. In Crystal Diskmark, it is 50%-500% faster than my Samsung SATA drive depending on the transfer size being tested. It isn't pretty, but my motherboard has heat spreaders that hide the drive. I'm quite happy with the purchase. It is working great thus far. PCIe or SATA standards are both much faster than traditional hard drives, but it somewhat noticeable that PCIe is faster than SATA. Be sure you put it in the M.2 slot closest to the CPU as a rule of thumb. Those are usually the better slot.

Excellent product

Pros: easy install
very high performance

Cons: none

Overall Review: This was my first venture into M.2 SSD's and I was not disappointed with this Mushkin product. Installed in an ASROCK H310M-HDV/M.2 mobo it was immediately recognized and the Ubuntu 18.04 install automatically partitioned and loaded the SSD correctly from live DVD. I have not bench-marked the drive yet but Ubuntu boots in under 15 seconds , apps load very quickly.

Easy to Install and Super Quick

Pros: - Bang for the buck: The specs-to-cost ratio on this one was impeccable ($70 card/ 2500mbs read 1500mbs write)
- Easy install; stick it in the slot and screw it down
- No compatibility issues with my combo port
- Windows installed quickly and all Laptop drivers installed from manufacturer
-integrated with motherboard, Graphics card, etc, without issue

4/5 because it's intended to be that kind of product; slightly slower than perfect, but the price is much better than it should be, still

Cons: - The only cons are from Windows not from the SSD; Windows recognition of new hard drives can be sketchy, just look for a good guide online before you try to set it up if you're not 100% on how to do this; KEEP A BACKUP, DUMMY!

Overall Review: For a budget SSD, this is the way to go. I paired the upgrade with bumping my RAM from 8GB to 16BG. My PC is a whole new beast.

Speed and Performance!

Pros: - Performance
- Price
- Ease of Use
- Frustration free packaging

Cons: - There are competitors that are potentially a little faster, but not for this price

Overall Review: I decided to use this as my Windows/Boot drive along side another Mushkin Source SATA M.2 + HDD in a FuzeDrive configuration. That way in case something happens I can still boot. In my B450 AM4 mobo I have not had a hiccup. Would definitely recommend.

Fast and Inexpensive

Pros: CrystalDiskMark(R/W):
2535/1675 MB/s

Seems fast and inexpensive.

Cons: Could be faster (like Samsung EVO 970 [3400/2300 MB/s ~ $150] and Western Digital Black NVME), but you get what you pay for.

Overall Review: This compares to a 500GB Samsung EVO 850 SATA3 running on the same hardware.
CrystalDiskMark(R/W):
550/525 MB/s
