Cheap For the capacity, but slow (for me) 8/9/2020 8:38:05 PM

Pros: Not that expensive for 2Tb SSD

Cons: Falls quite a bit short on peak speed. Should be getting at or very close to 560mb/s read, but I'm getting 380mb/s or less. Write is a bit better, but coming in at ~480mb/s still a bit off from its advertised 530mb/s. A 512gb drive I bought in 2014 is faster than this thing (Crucial MX100) and gets almost at its advertised speeds

Its possible that I got a bad drive, as I see others are getting those advertised speeds, and especially since I got a 6 yr old SSD that still getting around its advertised speed.

Overall Review: At least its cheap.

Boot times 8/9/2020 9:32:02 AM

Pros: Small, blazing fast data transfer rates.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I would have never guessed that this thing would improve performance so drastically. Using Windows 10 My boot times are under a minute. That's including the time it takes to get to put in my password to get to the desktop.

Solid Performance 8/8/2020 4:31:31 AM

Pros: Was a great upgrade to my old 1TB HDD.

Cons: Was sad to see there was no included sata cable.

Overall Review: Would recommend to anyone still running a HDD for their OS to swap over to an SSD asap as it will make a huge difference!

However I might recommend to some people to buy a boot drive and then store files on a cheaper HDD.
