lightning fast 3/24/2018 10:43:04 PM

Pros: super fast.
easy to install.
heat sink
5 year warranty
no additional wiring

Cons: drive runs hot...really hot...needs a fan blowing on it
no access lights or power light indicator lights would be nice.

Overall Review: although the drive runs hot it is still within spec..and i would suggest putting a fan on it..the splash screen that everyone is complaining about only takes about 2.5 sec.there is a workaround to get rid of the splash screen if it bothers you that much..my primary drive is a raid-0 4x7200rpm and this drive benches exactly 5x faster..I am using this drive as a gaming drive not ad a boot drive so if i lose 3 sec every time i boot my cpu but my ingame loads are 1/5 of what they were on my old raid array then over the lifetime of the drive i will get hundreds of hours more actual gaming time instead of sitting at the dreaded loading screen.....by the way this is the same thing i said when i went from a single drive to a raid...so you do the math...get crystal disk and bench your current drive..then go to the plextor websight and look at the data sheet for this drive, i thought they were padding the numbers...they werent...infact my drive tested at or above the listed specs with repeatable scores...*i have had a fan on it the entire time but but i just prefer to be cautious

Pros: Much faster than samsung 860 sata 3 ssd, works well with x58 and x99 boards, my samsung 960 was not working well with the same set-ups.

Cons: about 25 percent slower than samsung 960

Overall Review: Only time will tell if it will be as dependable as the samsung ssd

Powerful 3/9/2018 3:55:48 PM

Pros: 1. No LEDs
2. Inexpensive
3. Great Performance

Cons: double your pleasure,
double your fun,
I used to have lag,
now I got none.

Overall Review: Two of these in RAID 0 are the boot drive on my Asus Maximus 9 Apex via the DIMM.2. The UEFI/Bios recognized them immediately without a problem. I went ahead and put a copper heat sink (Enzotech MOS-C10 C1100, Item#: N82E16835708012) on every one of the black modules. I don't know if it helps their performance as this was a fresh build.

This Thing Is Fast 3/2/2018 10:09:08 AM

Pros: Fast. No questions about it
Easy to install
Minimalist look

Cons: Led is set to red and no option to turn it off
Not 100% plug and play, had to mess around with partition manager to get it fully operational

Overall Review: this thing is stupid fast and for the price for an AIC because my motherboard doesn't have a M.2 expansion slot the price is not bad at all

Fast, fast storage, for those with the budget, do not hesitate. 2/2/2018 1:40:49 PM

Pros: Easy to install.
Snappier than SSD.
FormFactor is much tighter and neater than clunky old disks and cables, for a nice tidy motherboard (positive for case airflow).
Did I mention no cables?

I bought 2 x 512 and striped them RAID 1 for a full TB of ultrafast storage...

It's almost so fast that I find myself asking if I still need RAM in the system (of course you do... silly)

Gosh I really love these things.

Feb 2018 - still running strong - still delighted!

Cons: They get HOT while running. I got the version without the heat spreader and I think I might want to buy some sort of focused cooling solution for these babies.

On my ASRock Z170 Extreme7+ LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI I had to do a lot of fiddling in UEFI/BIOS to make windows 7 install on my RAID 1. Win 10 was no issues.

New Fast Stuff is usually expensive stuff. This is no exception.

Overall Review: They do have firmware and you should update it.

Prone to Failure and Heat 1/14/2018 9:17:38 PM

Pros: - Relatively inexpensive.
-Plextor used to be a good name in storage.
-M.2

Cons: -reliability
-temperatures
-instability
-died within 6 months

Overall Review: Bought this off another reseller actually 6 months ago. Every couple of weeks I would come home to PC stuck on the Plextor splash screen. Would always reboot and it worked fine, figured a brown out or something. Well this morning it did the same thing but reboot would not fix it. Swapped to the other M.2 slot an joy. Got past the splash screen and would freeze at the post. Removed it and system would boot to the old OS SSD drive (Crucial MX300).

Used exclusively as a boot drive. When I pulled it even with the system being off for over ten minutes it was still hot to touch. Would not purchase again.

Pretty good OS drive. 12/16/2017 4:51:24 AM

Pros: - Fast for the price I got it for ($100)

Cons: - 2.0 support is poor. Use this only in 3.0.

Overall Review: Has a few kinks but you can get around them and fix issues. Most boot issues are caused by it being stuck in a loop, so power needs to be cut from it.
