Reviews

Reads are pretty fast, writes are decent. I honestly can't see a noticeable difference from my WD Blue drive. I think boot times are actually slower. Regardless, still pretty fast and a good upgrade from my mechanical drive.

Was my dad's old SSD and he gave it to me, hence why I marked it down as purchased. It has some pretty fast read times, and write speeds are mediocre. About 500Mb/s reads and only 180Mb/s writes according to Crystalmark.
