    Not the fastest SSD around but the price/performance/space ratio is great even at its normal price.

    Not the fastest but a great price for the space.

    Oh my God, these boot-up times. For everything. I'm literally salivating, after coming from a laptop that took ages to load everything on boot-up. THE ONLY DOWNSIDE is that I'm getting some pretty fatal crashes that forces me to restart my computer.

    Was the best bang-for-your-buck SSD when I purchased it, it's blazing fast and reliable. The SSD hype is so real and so worth it.

    I had this SSD from previous build. So this was purchased back in December 2014, when SSDs of the like where selling for £80+ I can't recommend getting an SSD for the OS/Browser/etc enough. It's whole new level of responsiveness. Best SSD price/performance wise. The Evo might be faster, but it also comes at a high premium.

    Boots my Windows 7 Ultimate in less than 10 seconds, maybe even shorter but never measured it. Would have M2 SSDs if I had $ but hey, nothing much to complain here.

    So I have two 256gb in Raid 0. It benched around 690mbs, just for the lulz, but nothing I do really needs that speed. I just wanted the storage set size and 0ms seek times. Man, do I wish I bought that 1TB Sandisk for $200 on Black Friday. (and yes, important data is always backed up)

    I originally considered going with a Samsung 850 EVO (we have them in our machines at work), but ended up getting this.

    This is my first ever use of an SSD in a desktop; wish me luck.

    Very fast indeed. Just re-installed my OS and a few games onto this baby and it beats any HDD by a long shot. Easy to install and offers plenty of storage for my OS and a few demanding games.

    Quick, quiet (obviously), and stays cool. Great SSD for the price.
