Pros: Working in my media server very close to listed speeds
Love that this allowed me to not have to run another cable in my case
Cons: None as of yet
Overall Review: Glad I made this purchase. As stated in other reviews and the product specifications, make sure you realize that this is only a SATA 6Gb/s drive.
Pros: +SATA III speeds are more than enough to keep windows snappy even with lots of other stuff going on.
+M.2 form factor means 0 concern about cables, etc.
+EGGSELLENT PRICE, at least at time of purchase ($300ish which is great for a terabyte of SSD)
+SSD means random reads/writes are nearly as fast as sequential. This means it's great for starting windows, loading several programs, etc...
+WD BLUE means RELIABLE. If you're reading this, that means it hasn't failed on me yet! If it does I'll come back and be very angry.
Overall Review: Only SATA III! It says so on the title, and you're obviously not paying for anything faster, but be aware! If you need / want LIGHTNING FAST this falls a little bit short (BLAZING FAST??? compared to an HDD.). Personally I'll never really saturate the bandwidth often enough for it to matter to me. BUY SMARTER, NOT HARDER(?). Get something which suits your purposes!
Pros: its cheaper than other ones I found
does its job
Pros: -LOL FOR EASY INSTALL ITS A M.2!
-RUNNING GREAT SO FOR AND NO ISSUES
-UPGRADED FROM RUNNING HDD's ALL MY LIFE TO THIS AND ITS AMAZING!
Pros: This ssd is more expensive than the sata model but i prefer this because it kept me from adding another cable to my crowded case. I have owned it for several months and it has maintained its advertised speeds. My boot time is very fast and I can have as many programs load at startup as I want without experiencing a noticeable slowdown. I was considering this or the intel 650. I went with this because it has a higher expected time to failure and is a bit cheaper. So far, I am happy with it.
Cons: More expensive than a sata connect without the extra speed.
Pros: Faster than a conventional HDD
Cons: Faster options are available
Overall Review: It's the only drive in the system. Makes the win10 feel plenty fast.
Pros: It works well, no issues, and is very fast. I've had it for over 6 months. I use it in an HP Z Book 17.3" laptop. I have 3 hard drives, with 5 TB total, 4 TB for data and 1TB for the C: boot drive. Reboots are very fast. This machine gets hard core use, am usually running a few virtual PCs, in addition to the main PC. The other 2 hard drives are hybrid drives, would like for them to be SSD, but is a little too expensive for me at this time. Having the C: drive as SSD is great for now.
Pros: I purchased a new motherboard, as it had a slot for this, I thought I'd try it out. Works amazingly. Seems faster than the old SATA class SSD I had. System is lightning fast.
Cons: This is more part of the motherboard, but related. I didn't realize it would disable one of my SATA ports. I bought the motherboard with the knowledge that there were six Sata ports and two M.2 ports. I thought good, 8 possible drives. Nope, the M.2 ports, when in use, disable corresponding SATA ports.
