To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Good value Nvme drive for those wanting that little extra performance boost. Installation was relatively quick and straightforward.
Please note: if you're using this as a second nvme drive, you'll need to go into your system settings, 'initiate' the drive, and then format it. Otherwise it won't show up automatically in 'my computer'.
READ THIS. I'm not even going to suggest what performance stats are attainable, utterly pointless, no one every keeps track or is really interested Simply put, this SSD is everything you would expect from a brand you you trust. Its blooming quick and I've had no troubles at all.
The width was surprising and I was unable to install on my mobo slots but a while later I had the back plate off whilst the large heatsink still on top fitted nicely. Not installed any games on it yet but I cloned my old c drive with macrium reflect and the os feels a bit faster. The heatsinks feel quite warm to the touch so I'm guessing they take a bit of heat away. Good price 👍
Benchmarking this device suggests the rated speeds are accurate and this is a properly fast drive. I wasn't sure if the heatsink was really needed but it was only a few quid more when I purchased the device, I'm glad I did. Under benchmarking this thing can get upto 80C! I think cooling is really a must!
My oh my... the difference moving from a mid-tier SSD to this made was unbelievable... I've not enabled fast boot or anything else and usually boot into windows in less than 5 seconds on a bad day - moving large files around this drive is lightning fast and after testing I was getting slightly more than the advertised write/read speeds
I would give this a good review if the software side wasn't so bad. The dashboard you're advertised is actually missing a side panel containing adds and the cloning software provided is a joke as I simply wasn't able to clone my drive to the nvme and had to fresh install windows which is very disappointing as I'd deleted a lot of data which I'll now have to redownload. I would recommend getting a Samsung Evo as the extra cost is more than made up for by the ease of use and the stellar software.
The product looks good and has great reviews, however it doesn’t work with my pc. I have tried everything, followed every YouTube video and it has taken hours off of my life. The drive shows in my bios however it doesn’t show up in the drive partition. I believe it’s a windows issue with my amd processor however it could be anything
I upgraded from a 240gb sata ssd to this 1tb speed machine and I am very impressed with it. Everything is so fast and snappy, the installation was fairly easy once I realised my motherboard had to have an option enabled in the bios for nvme drives. The heat sink on this is very nice looking also.
