10 second boot time from power button to login. I found this very affordable for the boot drive and some choice games. There were no additional drivers, so this was really plug and play.

I know this isnt a 960 pro, but it was also much cheaper than that option. Realistically I wont ever see a bottleneck in the performance of this drive over a 960 m.2 nvme. Still faster than an sata drive at that. Plus 5 year warranty sounded nice.

Just pure speed. Cant read games tips on load screen cause it load to fast.

Haven't had any issues with it. Looking back, I probably should have gone with a little more space for an extra $80 or so, but this should do fine for a while. If you're on a tighter budget, this is perfect for your OS and programs. Just made sure you get extra storage for other files.

This is probably the best value for an NVMe SSD that one could purchase. Its price-to-size ratio is quite good, and unless you're constantly transferring massive files, you won't notice or miss the extra speed from faster, more expensive drives.

Almost par with my HyperX Predator synthetically. Very nice little drive and other than boot loop on old BIOS, very stable. Also great price to performance

Affordable and really let's your system sing. Boot times are ridiculously low when using these types of drives.

This one is big enough, I use it as the sole drive.

It was a good price, their Caviar Blue HD work really good so I gave it a try. So far so good
