Faster than your average SSD
Steven S from Calgary, AB writes:
- - M.2 NVMe Interface, faster than any SATA III drive or hard drive - Sustained real world Rads of 1,800MB/s on my own system (rated up to 2.050MBps) - Drive fits onto the motherboard, no extra stuff required
- - Sustained real world Writes topping out @ 700MB/s tested (which is the rated speed) but it is a bit disappointing, and only slightly above what an SSD on SATA III can do
- Bought this for a new Ryzen build i was doing because the price was right. And right it needs to be. If this is substantially cheaper from the Samsung 960 EVO, get this drive as you'll never tell the difference from this one and the better write speeds on the EVO (as it is unlikely you're doing the professional work). But if you need the screaming speed, you can pay a little more and get the better drive. Otherwise, this makes a great primary drive.
Solid m.2 pcie nvme ssd

- Noticeably faster than msata or sata 3 SSDs, solid read speed for a pcie x4 lane ssd, reasonable price, low power consumption, low temperature. Very similar performance to adata sx7000 and many other mid-range pcie nvme SSDs in benchmark
- Somewhat poor random 4k write speed for a pcie nvme ssd, thus nowhere fast as the Samsung 960 evo
- It's a good pcie nvme ssd if you can get it substantially cheaper than the Samsung 960 evo
Faster than a speeding Bullet

- Testing this piece out with an HP EliteDesk 800G3 Business computer at work, installed Windows 10 Professional, was able to boot to the desktop in 7 seconds. You will never buy an HDD ever again, unless for data storage.
- Only thing tricky for us was finding the right screw to hold it down on the motherboard. We had to find a Phillips PM2.0×3.0 screw, the M2 SSD does not come with screws, which I cannot blame WD for, they can't accommodate all motherboards that are out there. Our HP 800G3 did not come with any screws either, so keep that in mind, find out what screw size your motherboard uses to hold it down.
- Extremely fast, no noise, no heat, no moving parts, no caddie no cables.
