    Decent drive. Will throttle to speeds of an HDD if storage capacity reaches around 80% of the drive.

    I wanted to get a decent sized M.2 drive for this build because the motherboard has 2 M.2 slots - one on top and one underneath. I knew that I never want to take this thing apart again to get underneath the motherboard, so that's where this drive went. I can always add a 2nd M.2 drive to the top of the motherboard at a later date.

    This drive seems to be well regarded. All I can say is that it boots Windows 10 ridiculously fast. I am very satisfied.

    Decent price for a decent SSD, Running Win 10 and a fairly large amount of games from it and couldn't be happier.

    Using this as the boot drive has made starting up Windows 10 extremely fast. Although this is not a top-of-the-line M.2 SSD, it runs reasonably well and was good value for money, so there's really nothing to complain about.

    Not the fastest but it does the job and is priced well. There are some cheaper but I have found that sometimes saving $5 is not worth the headache. I purchased 2 cheaper drives and both had issues and had to be returned. I have 2 of these in systems now and both have been solid.

    I really do enjoy having an M.2 SSD. If you haven't yet taken the plunge, I highly recommend it. From a cold boot, my system is sitting at the Windows Desktop within seconds. Games load quickly and everything seems more responsive. Chose the 512 GB because I was on a tight budget and it was plenty to serve my needs. The price was very reasonable, and I can install Windows, a few productivity apps, and a handful of games and still have plenty of breathing room. Would have rather gone with the 1 TB, but this was a good compromise with regards to speed, spaciousness, and price. Don't worry that it's not got the fastest throughput among M.2 SSD's, you'll never notice the difference in real world use.
