Super quick and easy to install. Boot windows in less than 10s.

Great Drive, picked up for a good deal on amazon, runs as well or better than samsung's top nvme sticks. Would recommend 100%

Initial benchmarks have been amazing. This is a really fast drive. Faster than my Samsung EVO 960.

Edit: I knocked this drive down a star. I've struggled to get this drive working in Ubuntu 18.04 (Freezes system when trying to access). After searching the Western Digital and Ubuntu forums, it doesn't look like this drive works well with Ubuntu right now. Not sure if it's drivers or bios or something else. If anyone has luck getting this to run in Ubuntu 18.04, let me know. Still works great on Windows 10.

Pretty darn fast. Reasonably priced.

This is a real deal i got for $90 awhile back. It is super fast in both reads and write speeds. Great for the price over samsung evo and pro.

Place of purchase - Amazon.com

Actually paid attention when ordering this drive (see my Crucial M.2 drive to see why that's important). 500GB NVMe SSD for a grand total of $115 after a random coupon added at checkout (thanks, Amazon!)... I can't complain at all. Fast, brought my storage to 3.5ish TB. I think I'm done looking at storage solutions for a little while.

after losing my data and having to get a professional recovery service in. they recommanded western digital for reliability. so when i have some money, i brought this m.2 which does the job quite well.
