M.2 SSD drives are simply the best storage choice right now. Easy to install, no cables. I recommend it to anyone, even if they are only SATA drives and not NVMe. Runs great without a comment.

I never test it for speed but it must be better . Hassle free installation and less cables deserve easy 5 stars . I'm so glad I tried .

Nothing wrong with it. It's fast. I have all my games and many applications on it, but I keep my Windows OS on a separate SATA SSD. I don't have a ton to say about it - I can't tell any difference between my SATA SSD and this M.2 SSD, since I really only use it for gaming and light applications, but I'm sure someone that does a lot of video editing (or handles any large files for that matter) could probably benefit from the additional speed.

Lightning fast storage however if your not moving lots of data constantly its not really worth the extra expense over a nice SATA ssd, day to day operations and boot time feels the same vs an 850 pro. Took one star off for price.

Great performance. Loved that they included an M2 screw in the packaging as well. Good value at $236.

This thing is so cool! Lightning fast, super small and looks like it was built into the motherboard. I used this NVMe drive as my boot drive for window. Works so much better than I could have ever imagined. Computer boots, I put in my login and windows if fully loaded within seconds!
One thing to look out for. On my motherboard if you plug in 1 or 2 of these bad boys you will lose some of your SATA ports (plug in 2 you lose 3 of the 6 SATA ports). So read your motherboard manual and check which ones disable when you use an NVMe drive. Personally, for the speed...I'm okay with it.

It's fast. It's real fast. The M.2 SSD was a lot smaller than what I expected but that's more a passing comment than anything else. It's just bloody fast. That's all there is to say :)

Damn fast, honestly if you aren't happy with these speeds, I'd love to see your work flow. Super fast, small, doesn't get hot, says Samsung, Black PCB.
