from completed build White Rabbit - First PC Build!

M.2 is amazing, very easy to install, and this drive has been doing good. I do get a bit slower Read/writes than some more mid-tier SSDs like the Samsung Evo, but it does the job.

from completed build Relatively quick

First M.2 drive I have used - they are freakishly fast! I am using it for my OS and main programs. Very happy with the purchase! Installation was easy - note that it does not come with a screw kit (your motherboard should) so if you don't have one, you'll need to get one.

I got this from the parametric filter and bought it before I learned that SATA M.2 SSDs are just as fast as 2.5"SSDs so I wasted money on the form factor. In the future I'll get a PCI-E M.2 SSD and maybe raid them. Live and learn.

runs at SATA3 speeds, which is quick enough for my application

So far so good. I was concerned about the low cost. It has only been a couple of weeks. I have 2 of these. Windows 10 installed on one and Ubuntu 17.04 on the other. Both are working with no problems. Very fast too. Ubuntu boots in about 15 seconds and Windows in about 20 seconds.

Boot times are measured in seconds. The OS, some applications, and a select list of games reside on this SSD. It is just barely over half-full.

Fast m.2 NVMe SSD

from completed build The Problem Build

Absolutely perfect for booting up and some applications. It's about 9 seconds for me to boot up, log in and into Google Chrome on Reddit.

Faster and cheaper than my second car

I have windows installed on this and workflow software such as GIMP, Unreal Engine. Blender, etc. Once you live off one of these M.2 drives, normal SSD's will seem like a joke to you & you'll never want to switch back. Highly recommend one of these at this price if your Mobo has a slot for it.
