not the best quality 7/5/2020 11:44:06 PM

Pros: none

Cons: Received a badly damaged unit, the plastic around the connectors was broken off the pins broken off or bent badly. The plastic appeared to have broken off easily

Overall Review: Newegg replaced the unit but it took a long time to accomplish although without hassle. COVID was the reason given. I also ordered other units from Crucial, these came very well made, performed really well and the things are almost unbreakable. Buy Crucial instead. I have used Western Digital in all build for the last 20 years + and I am highly disappointed with these, cheaply made and cheaply shipped in an envelope.

Great SSD 7/5/2020 10:23:11 AM

Pros: Great load times (read/write speeds are sweet).
No cables as it's an M.2.
1TB, perfect amount of starter storage that can also function as a boot drive.
Price was great comparable to Samsung and other reputable brands.

Cons: Doesn't look flashy or anything.

Overall Review: Get this SSD if you're looking to put together a nice compact build that doesn't require cables. Always have the option to expand off SATA ports in the future if you want.

Great Product 7/4/2020 1:29:07 PM

Pros: + Works at stated speeds
+ Very affordable

Cons: - None

Overall Review: I wanted to replace my last spinny HDD with this to use as a backup drive. No reason to give it any less than 5 eggs because it does what it's supposed to do. No more spinning HDD noise!
