Does not support 144 Hz refresh7/26/2017 9:31:12 AM

Pros: well made

Cons: does not support 144hz

Overall Review: If you are like me with a new graphics card GTX1080 which only has a display port no DVI-D. and your 144hz monitor only has DVI-D, this cable is not your answer it will only support 60 hz. don't make my mistake

Crashed after about 2 months7/26/2017 9:24:14 AM

Pros: Easy to install read/write speeds are slower then advertised but it is still fast - compared to say a Samsung Evo SSD

Cons: Drive crashed and died after about 2 months. I had heard about these issues with the new PCIe drives from Samsung but the reviews for the WD are better, even though the drive has slower read/write speeds. I paired mine with an ASUS ROG Maximus IX Code MoBo, Asus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB GPU, i7-7700 Kaby Lake 4.2 ghz cpu, Ballistic Sport RAM - DDR4 @ 2400 4x8GBs, Samsug 850 Evo SSD 1TB, Noctua NH-D15 CPU cooler, and an 80+ gold corsair 1000W PS. I only put the OS on the WD PCIe - all games I loaded onto the 850 Evo - to keep the high load read/write materials off of the PCIe to give it the best chance I could. But it didn't matter - I got the blue screen about two months in and then it wouldn't boot past the bios log in screen (couldn't get to bios unless I pulled the drive). WD replaced it under warranty and I've had the new one in for about 2 weeks now. Got another blue screen last night - and couldn't boot past the enter bios with F2 or Del screen. I monitor with the WD SSD Dashboard and CAM, all temps have always been well in range for stable running. I pulled the drive - and put it back in this morning, and tried booting with the Windows flash drive - Doing this I was able to get back in. I am not sure if there is some compatibility issue with my MoBo or if these drives are just unstable - either way I would not buy another one. I had a friend who bought one as well, and also had issues

Overall Review: I would recommend sticking with the Sumsung Evo SSDs until the PCIe drives get a bit more stable.
