Hasn't failed after a few months, so that's good. No clicks or anything.

Fast and quiet are the two ways I would describe this. It's a good value.

Took a star since it's just 500GB, but I already owned it so didn't have the expense of buying a data HDD. I'm not even close to filling it (yet).

from completed build Hand-me-down Cube

A solid drive that has stood the test of time, and is still chugging along. Don't have fun with modifying partitions, it or Windows 10 doesn't seem to be entertained by that, and then funky issues persist until you write zeroes.

For some reason setting up a raid behind an m.2 boot drive on a amd platform is not the easiest thing to get done. Before you install windows have raid selected in bios, yet do not create the array. Then install windows. Then get AMD's RAIDXPERT2 installed and use it to create array. Reboot and use disk management to finish.
