Loving it. THis is my first m.2 drive and i love the fact that its tiny and sticks on the motherboard. Really happy about it. Though in the future i might get one of those PCIE M.2 cards. I believe they are a lot more faster than the normal SATA m.2 drives.

Cheap (seeing a theme here). Performs well and allows less wires than a traditional setup allowing for better cable management and air flow.

nothing special about this M.2. Its not super fast by any means, but for the price and storage I have no issues at all with this. I do not feel that this is limiting my everyday gaming and use in any way.

Not a very fast SSD but an SSD none-the-less. Works with my cheap SATA-M.2 adapters I got. Ugly AF doe.

This is my first M.2 SSD experience and so far it has been great. The load time on Windows is so fast that the animation screen doesn't finish before it posts all the way.

I love this SSD, not only for the performance but also the pricing. I'll choose this anytime over the Samsung evo.

Performance is as good as the best SATA SSD's out there and it sips power. The MX300 is a great bang-for-your-buck drive if you're not willing to spend the premium for an NVMe drive.

Cheap (relatively) and fast. Windows boots within 6 or 7 seconds. Not sure what else you can ask for in a storage device.

Ive Never had storage in this form factor before. No wires/cables. Super Fast.. easy installation. I recommend for 1st time builders who do not know how to cable manage to keep things tidy.

OS drive and general programs! $50 over the 960, whose speed I don't need. I honestly can't tell the difference in speed between this and the Samsung, although I haven't directly checked. My PC does turn on/off quite fast so, no complaints either. No additional cables, best part.
