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.

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.
