Love this SSD, had to do a clean reinstall of windows 10 to fix some crashing issues so I upgraded from 120gb ssd to this 480gb PNY. It looks cool, came with software to transfer my old drive if I wanted to and so far the overall performance is great

I was initially thinking of the Samsung 850 Evo. However, I saw this unit and it had similar specs at a cheaper price. The color scheme of this unit matched my build better than the Samsung so i thought i would give it a try. No issues so far.

For the price you can't beat it! Running Windows 10 Pro on it is super snappy!

This SSD was only $109.99 when I bought it, which is a kick-*** deal. But over time, boot times worsened. When I ran a CrystalDiskMark benchmark with a 16GB sample, I found the 4K IOPS performance to fall to 106 MB/s random reads, and 105 MB/s random write. I don't know if this is normal for SSD's, especially the Samsung drives, but this is pathetic in my mind. But it's got 480GB of storage which I use to hold all of my commonly-used programs and my Windows 10 Pro on here.

UPDATE: After looking at the sequentials, for a 16GB-sized sample, the performance blows, so I docked another star from the overall rating. The advertised sequential write is 520 MB/s.

Snappy, speedy, and cool looking. All I needed was an upgrade from my old thing, and this did it's job like a king. I went PNY because they're cheap, and fast. I've used them in the past. I read more than I write, so I think they'll really last. It's got the speed I need. The lower fee for TLC was worth it to me, and it's longevity should be alright. No tea no shade no pink lemonade just alright.
