Awesome form factor! Added a heatsink and stays under 39c while in use.

Boots into windows in 13 seconds and has plenty of space for OS and plenty of games.

Boots windows in seconds and is great for games! I just wish that the sticker wasn't so ugly. Get a heat shroud to cover this up.

very good little M.2 SSD. for my use case, I could not justify an NVMe drive & felt this offered plenty of capacity for the price. Win10 loads very quickly, as expected.

Solid SSD with lots of storage. Can't wait till SSD prices drop down closer to HDD levels.

My last PC did not have an SSD. I am seeing the benefits regularly. My bootup times are less than 20 seconds where they used to be over 2 minutes. I like WD a lot which is why I chose this drive over a Samsung or Crucial budget drive. Just a good and reliable brand.
