Short Review:
This NVME SSD performs great, I've had it in my machine for a few days now, running a variety of programs and it has yet to disappoint! It is pricey as of the moment and most people would actually be better off with a SATA based SSD given that the difference is not very noticeable.

Long Review:
I'm a Software Developer and avid gamer, I use my machine daily and need a drive that is both fast and reliable, while also being affordable. The Western Digital 1TB Black is fantastic, it has been in my machine for a few days and has consistently performed well (reaching 3000+ MB/s comfortably!). I don't have any active cooling on the drive, so it is great to see that it isn't overheating in my machine, despite the amount of usage that the drive actually gets. Overall, although I'm extremely satisfied with the drive, given its current price is $200+ for 1TB, I would suggest possibly waiting for the price to drop/purchasing a SATA drive instead. The performance is good but, at least in the real world, it is not noticeably better than a SATA drive for most things (if not all!).
