    Using it as an internal storage drive, with an ADATA M.2 as the boot. Works perfect for storing my games!

    It's a slower HDD, but because I got it with other crucial parts for only $50, I can't complain. It loads Windows 7 fast enough.

    Could be faster, could be slower. Reliable if properly stored.

    Pulled from an old computer, used for game storage. Works well, is reasonably fast, and from past experience reliable.
