    Good Basic SSD. 500GB are needed nowadays for OS plus some programs. Western Digital disk drives have proven to be very durable. Went with the 2.5" SSD instead of M.2 in order to be easier to swap between systems when required.

    Excellent ssd in every way, it's not that bad of a price, it's on par with the Samsung 860/850 Evo and The Crucial mx500, it's a very good drive in terms of performance, but I'm not sure on how long it lasts.

    from completed build Very First Build

    500GB is a good pick since I need couple of heavy games on SSD for quick loading time.

    This SSD is lightning fast, at least for me and I couldn't be happier with it.

    from completed build Mark I - Snowdrift

    Fast, cheap, and a pretty big storage space for the price. It's no Samsung, but it gets the job done exceptionally well
