Solid 4/6/2020 3:58:41 PM

Pros: - Read/write speed as advertised (or near to). Very noticeable during boot up and transferring files to and from the drive.
- Price is comparable to regular SSDs.

Cons: - None thus far.

Overall Review: To clear things up for those convinced they absolutely "need" this: you don't.

I will say the same goes for PCIE 4.0. You will only see a difference in load times. This will NOT make you a better gamer and your reaction time will NOT improve. You will NOT become a faster graphics renderer or video editor.

What this will allow you to do is load large files and applications up quicker. Extensive video editing programs like Adobe Premier and CyberLink PowerDirector will not be bottle-necked when manipulating large HD files and will improve your productivity in that way. So if you're a mediocre video editor, you'll remain a mediocre one, just a slightly faster one.

As for gaming, again, load times is where you will see the difference. The increase in gameplay framerate is negligible - meaning an "improvement" of 1-2 frames on 157fps on ultra settings from a conventional SSD is meaningless.

An if you're playing on ultra settings, you're not a competitive gamer. You're a just another player.

Cons: No Dram cash

Overall Review: For the price it is better then a QLC and its got a 600TB write life

Great SSD 4/6/2020 6:22:55 AM

Overall Review: I haven't run any benchmark tests or anything, so I can't give a formal "how fast is it" number, but as my last computer was still running a spinning disk, I can really tell the difference. Windows 10 boots to the login screen in about 20 seconds, and that includes the MB POST. Good price too for a 1TB SSD.

Though I will say I wasn't expecting it to be quite as small as it is. That's not a + or -, it's just a component I hadn't used prior to this build.

If I had only known 4/4/2020 9:16:18 AM

Pros: Drive is small and should do well

Cons: Totally my fault but my computer dont support booting from a PCIE adapter with a NVME drive. So I have a nice storage drive or can keep this for when I update my computer.

Overall Review: I just dove in, and didnt do my homework. Never assume.

Good performance 4/3/2020 8:42:43 AM

Pros: I decided to use WD because, I trust in the brand.

Cons: My only negative comment is the storage capacity, why 500GB instead of 512GB.

Overall Review: At the end, drive is worth every penny. The performance is superior to the average.
