So far so good. Couldn't afford the Samsung but this is almost as good for a much better price. WD is dependable as far as I know.

Very fast! In my opinion, the best M.2 value on the market currently.

Got this drive on a sale for 1/2 price of a comparable Samsung drive. For this price, the slightly slower transfer speed is 100% worth it. Great deal

This drive is a beast. Speeds are fantastic and installation a breeze. Only issue I've seen is that temps get very high, 68c after 90 minutes of gaming. My old SSD never got above 45.
EDIT Temps have not improved, with seeing highs as much as 77c. Considering WD advises 0-70c, I RMA'd it and just got a sata ssd from WD. Not worth risking the data loss in my opinion.

This SSD was the last bit of the puzzle for this build and it is brilliant, reads are fast writes could be better but for the price of it I really can't complain.

I was going to buy a regular SATA SSD when I saw this. This is really impressive and so far is lightning fast. I had one game that on HDD was taking over 10 minutes to load all the maps and content, this one does the same thing in under a minute. Everything seems more responsive and I have found that things I attributed to a CPU bottleneck were actually an HDD bottleneck as I no longer see the issue.
Most surprising is the size. This SSD is smaller than a stick of ram.
