    Great value.

    525GB for 150€ is a steal, especially since the performance is quite decent (no slow sequential write speed or terrible 4K performance like some other budget drives). The m.2 form factor is extremely convenient for small custom cases like mine. Not having to deal with any 2.5 or 3.5" drives really was a time-saver.

    Performance is as good as the best SATA SSD's out there and it sips power. The MX300 is a great bang-for-your-buck drive if you're not willing to spend the premium for an NVMe drive.

    OS drive and general programs! $50 over the 960, whose speed I don't need. I honestly can't tell the difference in speed between this and the Samsung, although I haven't directly checked. My PC does turn on/off quite fast so, no complaints either. No additional cables, best part.

    Not a very fast SSD but an SSD none-the-less. Works with my cheap SATA-M.2 adapters I got. Ugly AF doe.

    I love this SSD, not only for the performance but also the pricing. I'll choose this anytime over the Samsung evo.

    nothing special about this M.2. Its not super fast by any means, but for the price and storage I have no issues at all with this. I do not feel that this is limiting my everyday gaming and use in any way.

    Cheap (seeing a theme here). Performs well and allows less wires than a traditional setup allowing for better cable management and air flow.

    Loving it. THis is my first m.2 drive and i love the fact that its tiny and sticks on the motherboard. Really happy about it. Though in the future i might get one of those PCIE M.2 cards. I believe they are a lot more faster than the normal SATA m.2 drives.

    Ive Never had storage in this form factor before. No wires/cables. Super Fast.. easy installation. I recommend for 1st time builders who do not know how to cable manage to keep things tidy.
