Pros: - Being M.2, the install for this took about 5 minutes. My motherboard has two M.2 slots, so my main drive was already an SSD and this slotted in next to it.
- Speed was comparable to the 500GB 970 PRO main drive, and a bit faster in sequential reads/writes.
- Very reasonably priced for a very good performing drive!!
Cons: - 500GB is about the bare minimum for a single drive system, if you need more - go for the 1TB.
Overall Review: - Would highly recommend to other people, in fact, I have already recommended it to people!
Pros: The outer shell of the case seems solid. Looks nice!
Cons: This case is advertised as being 11.8" 'deep'. It isn't. Not even CLOSE. It's closer to 13.5" deep, when you take into account the little PCI slot tab, and a hair under 13" without it. I was curious as to what the heck the 11.8" was even measuring... so...
If you remove the front fascia of the case - and the front indicator LEDs - and the power button - and then unscrew and remove the front USB and sound box - leaving you with a completely bare metal case - THAT is 11.8" deep.
