Fantastic Drive! 11/14/2019 1:28:42 AM

Pros: Extremely low power draw and performed as advertised.
Took a few minutes to install and was immediately recognized by BIOS.

Cons: Nothing.

Overall Review: Using it as a secondary storage drive for old games. If your Mobo has an X2 slot, this is the one you were looking for.

amazing 9/7/2019 9:39:15 AM

Pros: Very fast, works great

Cons: None

Overall Review: First time using a SSD M.2 drive, I did a test of moving a 1.4GB Movie, first from a portable hard drive took about 20 seconds, Then I made 2 partitions and moved the 1.4GB movie from one partition to the other, It took 2 seconds. Awesome speed very happy with this

I love it, it's magic. Slightly faster boot, smoother operation (BARELY but it's there) and quicker game loads. 7/11/2019 8:52:39 AM

Pros: Technology is good but WD is selling Magic, buy it!
This makes no sense, why I'm calling it magic.
Had a very strange screen flash when Running desktop stuff @1440P (Across multiple computers, with different RAM, 2 GPU, 2 CPU, 3 SSD, 2 OS, 3 PSUs, 4 Motherboards, multiple software installations / configurations/overclocking / underclocking, / rollbacks... In my twenty years of working with computers, this is the oddest problem I've ever seen that resolved.

Overall Review: If you're looking at things like 4K speeds, you'll notice this beats a number of NVMe X4 drives, and the random speeds are what actually matters - SSDs were such a HUGE improvement over HDDs not because they had 3X better SEQ speeds, but because they are like 80X faster at random.
I put AC Odyssey on it and I keep running the game to 'clock' the load times but I'm actually able to get into the game for the first time ever and never even think about the load times... heat can get up 54°C (In-game) but I'm not sure if my Motherboard's Heatsink is hurting or helping with that.

Even on an adapter and no PCIe-3 support it's fast, and cheap. 7/5/2019 3:12:15 PM

Pros: If you have PCIe-3.0 support it must be wicked fast, wayyy faster than a SATA SSD or an M.2 drive running through a PCIe\SATA adapter
So far it works great with the PCI adapter on PCIe-2.0 x2, still 3x read, several x write speed compared to my 10,000RPM WD Velociraptor.
Price, even with adapter was cheaper than most SATA SSD's.

Cons: None. except that I wish my A8 5600k CPU supported PCIe-3.0. My A88X-G43 Motherboard does.
Be sure your Bios supports NVMe if you have an older board. Update may add support if you don't have it.

Overall Review: Cheapest speed upgrade ever!

It's Western Digital, Enough said. 7/4/2019 5:42:57 AM

Pros: Necessary upgrade. Superfast. a lot faster than regular ssd. Easy install.

Cons: This product was meant for internal hard drive as a speedup in an hp pavilion desktop. only problem I ran into was cloning the drive. There is a hidden partition on the hard drive that Most programs wouldn't copy so win 10 wouldn't boot. I even tried clonezilla. The only program that worked flawlessly first time was easus partition master. Don't be fooled though most of the programs including p m have a trial version that doesn't actually copy. you have to buy the program.

Overall Review: I highly recommend this drive.

Good value NVMe drive 6/20/2019 12:10:04 PM

Pros: - decent speed for budget priced pcie 3.0 x2 NVMe drive
- price.
- not that this matters for performance or value, but this thing is tiny (only ~1/3rd the PCB is actually chips, rest is just empty pcb to make it 2280 form factor

Cons: - the only con is the PCB color for me, but since this sits under a m.2 drive heat sink on the motherboard this was installed on, not enough to take off an egg... but if this is installed on a motherboard without a heatsink covering it, the blue pcb will stick out like a sore thumb.
