  • Not a techie, but can notice the difference
    Reviewed by bibi3 - June 8, 2021

    this was installed on the family computer and while the previous drive was a typical "sata ssd" i never noticed how slow it was. after learning about different storage types, i now realize why nvme is so much faster. and it is noticeable! the load times for the initial startup is almost instant now. i don't even see the windows loading screen. pictures are clicked and opened almost immediately. i didn't know that a storage device could make such a difference, but my family has informed me that my pc is more than capable and switching to this drive was the breath of life it needed to be brought back into the 21st century. overall super happy with the drive.

  • Great reliable storage!
    Reviewed by Viabledata - May 12, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Needed extra storage space on my gaming laptop so decided to install on there. It's an nvme m.2 storage so it is super fast and great for gaming, but also very useful for other software like presentations, or graphical/video software. Must be installed in a m.2 port that supports nvme. After installing you must configure and format the storage or the computer will not recognize it. It is very simple and only takes minutes to format. There are many great videos explaining that process. No complaints, but I may suggest getting a m.2 thermal shield/heatsink. Overall great reliable storage that is super fast in loading.
