Had to order a stand off and screw to install the Scorch 512

Overall Review: Check your PCi Express version on your motherboard , and your Max length width for compatibility with your computer.

Great value

Pros: Faster than SATA based SSDs
Typical read 1.6GB/s speed very close to the specs "up-to" speed
Write speed 572MB/s is a bit under spec of 750MB/s for this drive size, but still pretty good.

Cons: Haven't noticed any

Overall Review: Upgraded from a SATA based SSD, now my workstation feels faster, opens programs faster, and I get work done quicker. When looking at specs, keep in mind that for a particular model, the higher capacity drives are faster than the smaller sub-models; can make a big difference.
Ensure you put it in a PCIE 3.0 slot for best performance. With only 2 lanes, it would be hindered in a PCIE 2.0 slot.

very flaky behavior

Pros: I sort of got the drive to work, eventually, but only sort of.

Cons: See below. The drive is very sensitive to metal objects around it.

Overall Review: I ordered this drive to upgrade the drive in an MSI GE62 6QF laptop. After inserting the drive, the laptop would hang for 4-5 minutes, then go into BIOS. BIOS did not recognize the drive. In order to fix this, you have to go into BIOS and set the drive type to RAID *before* installing the drive. The laptop will post normally. I was able to install Windows 10 and boot from the drive. Great!

While I was troubleshooting the drive and installing the OS I didn't install the drive's screw. After installing the screw and reinstalling the laptop's case, the laptop wouldn't boot. I figured out that there's something about the screw the drive doesn't like. I found a smaller diameter screw, and mercifully the drive booted with the smaller screw. How weird is that!?

Then I reinstalled the laptop's optical drive, which sits close to the M.2 socket. Again, the laptop wouldn't boot! When I power on the laptop, it goes straight into BIOS, and all the drives are identified correctly, but it just keeps going directly into the BIOS screen after booting.

This drive is overly sensitive to ... something. Since I fear that it will act up when I'm out in the field, I have no choice but to return it.

WOW!

Pros: Great product and easy to install. From a 512 GB harddrive to m.2 pcie NVMe is an awesome improvement. 3.0X2 due to an older CPU but still great boot, run, shutdown times.

Cons: None so far, will update if anything changes.

Overall Review: Just a note for someone doing this for the first time, motherboards can make this easy and make things take hours to complete. Ghosted the harddrive and tried to get the m.2 to be the boot drive! Two and a half hours and many videos later to finally get JOY! Your mileage may vary.

Works in Asus 97A motherboard

Pros: Price is good now. Works fine so far but only just installed .

Cons: BGA chips do not appear like they are epoxy under-filled for strength.

Overall Review: Socket is like a small DIMM socket in that is sets in on an angle and press to horizontal makes contact pressure to the socket. I do not like the mechanics of a long narrow board with BGA chips that is bowed slightly when the end anchor screw clamps down the board. Puts mechanical stress on chips BGA solder joints. Now add heat.

Heatsink bar would serve two purposes to improve reliability. 1) reducing heating, 2) providing a backbone support to reduce board middle outward bowing that puts stress on BGA chip solder joints. Elastic bands on end of heat sink bar will help reduce 'belly bow' although not sure about longevity of elastic bands to the heat.
