    from completed build B450 + 3700X = <3

    Installed on pcie 2.0 x2 slot . ~ 800MB/s . Still better than sata for the same price.

    I bought a budget M.2 to spend money on other components. For only $60, you get 500 GB of storage, fast boot times (under 15 sec for me) & a decent read/write speed. WD really did a good job with their SSDs!

    Primary drive mostly for applications and boot. Honestly one of the best investments I've made. I'm not sure if I can ever go back to booting from a HDD after this.

    I was going to just buy a M.2-shaped drive that uses SATA, but found this one on sale. I wanted the M.2 form factor to make the wiring in my PC simpler.

    As you'd expect from an SSD, it's fast. Is the upgrade from SATA speeds to NVMe speeds noticeable or worth it? I don't think I'd be able to tell.

    Also, keep in mind that this model is DRAMless, so the performance may be worse compared to a model with DRAM. See the Anandtech article if this matters to you.

    from completed build The Very Overbuilt Family PC

    Entry-level NVMe drives available at SATA-level prices means you can't really go wrong with this drive. I do wish it was offered in larger capacities, but if all you need is 500GB, then this is likely the best entry-level SSD you can get. Also comes with WD's awesome SSD software that makes it easy to monitor the health of the drive.

    from completed build Dreamsicle

    See completed build Dreamsicle. Paired with a WD Black 1TB 7200RPM HDD. Installed OS on this SSD. Boots in less than 10 seconds. You literally have less than a second to boot into BIOS it’s that fast. Looks great in motherboard M.2 slot.

    SO GLAD I got the NVMe version, the transfer times are astonishing!
