1 TB model is a double sided M.2 drive 8/25/2020 2:56:07 PM

Pros: Not sure yet, waiting on cooling pad/heat sink. I am hopeful though

Cons: Description isn't very forthcoming

Overall Review: Purchased the 1 TB model and a heat sink. Unfortunately the M.2 drive is double sided and the heat sink is only compatible with single sided M.2 drives.

Flexible 8/8/2020 8:37:19 AM

Pros: LOVE LOVE LOVE this ssd!

Came in on a deal, its a huge storage option and loads everything light a flash of lightning. Also, if you managed to stupidly install it incorrectly, say, i dont know, by screwing it to your board incorrectly because you missed a post. (Random right?) Its flexible and durable for newbies to building to make a few mistakes.

Cons: None love it

Overall Review: 10/10 would install again.

Works with both Windows PC and Apple MacBook PC. 7/31/2020 3:52:01 AM

Pros: Currently, August 2020, TLC is the preferred standards over QLC and yes, you get TLC engineered in this Solid State Drive (SSD) hard drive module. The Read and Write performance is excellent, meaning Windows/Mac loads quickly, installation of new programs completes quickly, apps runs smoothly, no freezing, no "Not Responding' processes, except software bugs.

Although this module supports 128 and 256-bit encryption, preferred macOS File Format is APFS (No Encryption/FireVault, No Case Sensitive).


Preferred file format in Windows is NTFS for available and preserved storage space.

Shows total "street metric" storage space of 1,863 GB.

Cons: Apple Proprietary Hardware Rule: To use this SSD Module on a Catalina / Big Sur Mac plus Windows 10 in Boot Camp, YOU MUST INITIALIZE AND FORMAT THIS SSD MODULE in Mac using Disk Utility (DU) or DU in Internet Recovery Mode, create a volume for the full storage capacity of 2TB, then build a Windows Boot Camp partition from this macOS Volume using DU or Boot Camp Assistance . THERE IS NO OTHER WAY.

Overall Review: Price and value, this is a win.

Seems good, needs a heatsink. 6/10/2020 10:59:38 PM

Pros: Fast.
Relatively affordable.
TLC NAND

Cons: -Gets hot and throttles pretty quickly.

Overall Review: It is a really fast drive and so far has really done the trick for my Photoshop editing. I regularly edit 200+ megapixel images and a fast scratch disk is a necessity. This one seems to be doing the trick. I do want to get a heatsink for it because it does throttle down pretty quickly when under load. So far though I like it.

Worked as described. 6/7/2020 11:43:46 PM

Pros: Easy to set up as Raid0 boot drive. Performance may not be the highest end, but very satisfactory results when running crystaldiskmark and everyday use.

Cons: N/A

Overall Review: If you're able to use the latest gen4 drives such as the Seagate Firecuda series, those may offer better performance, but you just can't beat these for being right in the sweet spot for cost to performance when running on gen3.
