- This drive is fast, easy to install, and is well priced.
- This drive has only been in use for 3 weeks at this point, but no issues or concerns have been found.
- This drive was purchased to store and run Virtual Machines and not to act as an O/S drive. On another system we have a Samsung EVO 1 TB drive which is now 3 years old running VMs in a similar fashion. This WD drive appears to be delivering the same performance as the older Samsung drive. This is the first WD SSD drive we have purchased, but have had excellent long term reliability in the many other WD drives we own. Given the 3 year manufacturer warranty we expect it will provide good service

- It works. Fast enough. good value for money
- None so far
- I just bought this, but it works, and it cloned without any trouble. Can't complain at $189 compared to Samsung at >$225. I think the Samsung 850 rates a little faster, but compared to the 5400rpm drive installed in my laptop, this is just fine.
So far excellent

- Fit excellent
Unbelievable how light these ssd's are
- Replacing a hard drive in a older MacBook Pro. Pulled drive out, stuck this one one in. Worked perfectly. Basically giving me about as much speed as can be expected from a 17 inch MacBook Pro 2009.
Because of age of machine SSD is probably maxxing bus out but is over 3 times faster then the 1TB SSH combo drive that was there before.
Ordered via mail and arrived within the week.
