    Didn't go all big-spender on storage. I expect this 480GB of SSD will do quite nicely, and I got a great sale price on it.

    Affordable fast SSD. 500GB was easily worth it; I have easily found stuff to use that extra storage.

    Best (cheapest) 500GB option I could find. I am not too demanding, suits me.

    I do not have any other SSD to compare it to, but I remember what booting to Windows from HDDs are like. So based on that comparison, this SSD performs very well. I feel like 500 GB was the best price point at the time for the amount of storage. My OS is on here, and my favorite games.

    Great performance. Was thrilled to see games like GTA V load so much more quickly. Then again, I'm coming from a PS4 HDD. Which was incredibly slow.

    A competent mid-range SATA SSD, good for your boot drive or for secondary storage. WD's SSD software is somewhat useful, but beyond that it's not exceptional in the category, so I would only recommend it if its price is good.
