from completed build Constantine, Risen Omnipotent (v2.0)
It seems unlikely that I can actually tell a difference between this and a standard SSD, but this NVMe drive feels incredibly fast by comparison. I purchased this for StoreMI: 1) to expand my storage a bit, and 2) to see if there's any measurable speed upgrade.

from completed build First Build... Without a Graphics Card
Pretty good SSD, I get pretty close to the advertised speeds while running Windows 10 Home. I used CrystalDiskMark with default settings and received 2750 sequential reads and 1200 sequential writes. If you want to see the whole test, check out the picture in my build. I had to flash my BIOS in order to get this to work with my motherboard since this is so new, but overall pretty good!

from completed build My first PC build ever with OC'ed RAM
Haven't had a problem except the color. I hate the green color scheme, as it doesn't fit my build... or anyone's in general.

from completed build Red Dwarf - Back In The Red
Stepping up from an old Crucial M500 mSATA or M4 I've had as boot drives in the past this is a huge leap in performance. Shame I can't afford to replace all my storage with these drives. I remember when I first got an SSD and was blown away by the leap in performance from regular HDD's at the time.
This is the same experience again and as prices drop things will certainly get a lot quicker in future.

from completed build First Build with some Second Hand Parts
Absolutely incredible price to performance! Easily the best budget M.2 SSD available right now. Quick boots, quick loading screens, quick transfers, this answers every question that I've had about M.2 SSDs so far; They really are as good as everyone says.
