from completed build Ryzen 3600 & Radeon RX 5700
This is my first build using NVMe M.2 drives, and I am really happy with them. While they are slightly more expensive than their 2.5” counterparts, they are generally faster, and help keep the case tidy as cables do not need to be accounted for. The downside to M.2 drives is that most motherboards have at most two M.2 slots, which limits upgrades and leads to the need to purchase higher capacity drives.
The advertised read speed are very high at 3,100 MBps, which puts it just shy of the Samsung 970 Evo 1TB, at less than half the cost (~250$ as of the writing of this). Read speeds are more important than write speeds for gaming. Unlike content creators, most of the content gamers write to disk are game updates, and write speeds will be limited to their internet connection speed for the most part. Write speeds on this drive are advertised at a respectable 1,900 MBps.
Happiness with purchase: 10/10 - This drive seems to have fantastic value. If it holds up as I expect it will, it will have been a great purchase.

I was skeptical about using an NVMe that writes "up to 1900 MB/s" and reviews online told me it was faster than advertised. Bought from Microcenter and built a new Ryzen 3rd gen system with it and I have to say it works wonders. Windows 10 and game speeds boot up significantly faster and the results in CrystalDiskmark were nuts (3127 read/3055 write). Installation was a breeze and the only other 1TB NVMe at $100 that I could compare in terms of read/write performance was the ADATA XPG that only occasionally has flash sales down from the $150 MSRP. Personally best bang for the buck and will get another if I ever need to build again.

from completed build First Time Build 2K Under 2K
I'm still amazed at how much the prices of storage has dropped over the years. This isn't the best NVME out there but still miles ahead of a SATA SSD or HDD for that matter.

from completed build Lil Beast - First build in 10 years.
- 1TB TLC (not qlc junk)
- PCI Express Gen 3x4 NVME (FAST)
- m.2-2280 (no wires yay) ???? PROFIT This thing is cheap for what it is and it's FAST! CrystalDiskMark has this thing at 3470 MB/s Seq read and 3060 MB/s Seq write. Highly reccomended best bang for buck M.2 NVME on the market if you want TLC and not QLC.
