So far so good. My first SSD and probably my last since the Intel 3D-XPoint devices will be out later this year.
Used as my OS/boot/main storage drive.
It is fast, spacious, and reliable. Best of all, no moving parts.
Currently Windows 10, all the apps and games are installed on this SSD. Windows 10 and Adobe Photoshop loading time is extremely fast.
I have my OS on this Drive, it boots windows up at about 14 seconds. It's way faster than my old HDD from my old 8 year old computer. I loads up my Steam games pretty fast, it's not as ridiculous as my PCI-E SSD, but it's much faster than my Toshiba HDD which spins at 7200 rpm.
Bad *** SSD. Overpriced, but great performance.
Working great as my single drive for the moment. Great performance and looks. The added reliability tests and warranty made this an easy decision.
Expensive yet vital.
If you're looking at my current build and reading how I've reviewed this, it shouldn't be a shock that I'm only giving this 3 stars. When you compare how expensive it is with the M2 drives, there is no reason to buy this, unless you run out of m2 slots. I'm using it as a backup drive, and its doing its job nicely. I traded a part for it, but if I had to spend money on it, I would just buy a m2 1 TB drive. Good for the past, but we've moved on.
In the little time I got use out of my original 850 Pro, I loved it. Its benchmarks were through the roof, boot time was always quick, transferring files was a breeze -- what else do you need? (aside from maybe an M.2 card).
This thing is a beast, fast and seriously large again you are paying for the quality of the SSD and I think this is a solid investment.
