from completed build The Black Magic Tardis (DB in Little C)
This was a gamble that I believe has paid off for me. I was unsure as to whether I was doing the right thing in going for Optane memory - particularly reading the poor reviews that hardened gamers were giving it - yet my uses are wider than solely gaming and I find the PC boots up quickly, accesses and opens files with little delay and has enabled me to get the most from my stored contents without having cost the earth. Granted it took some time to copy my data to the paired HDD first but I've had barely an issue since.

Yes, I read all the reviews and saw small boot SSDs recommended time and time again instead of Optane. What can I say, I like new technology and I wanted to see how this worked. Also, I don't like having to choose which drive to use for any given installation, so I do think this still has a place in the market for that reason.
It's too early for me to really comment on performance, so I will have to update this with a "real" star rating in the future.

Incredible speed. Slightly difficult to set up, which was really its biggest issue, especially prepackaged in the Z370 board I got them as. But this makes my 3 TB HDD basically a $60 3 TB SSD outside of massive file transfers or one-off file searching. It's a very niche product, but it does what you would expect. Even tested as a boot drive it beats out the fastest NVMes. Not necessarily worth it just for that, but it's neat.

Very good add to any built that isn't running a SSD or just wants a faster booting game drive HDD anyways.

If I could give this No stars, I would! Does NOT work properly and destabilized my entire system! Gave me nothing but trouble from the start! I have disabled, uninstalled, removed and reformatted my hard drive just to get rid of it!
DO NOT BUY!!!
