I have been using the SN550 for around 2 months now and I have zero complaints.
It's fast, installs easily and is a great price. I have my OS on another M.2 and then all my games and programs on this one, I then have two mechanical HDDs for lager storage. The new M.2 drive has been a huge help.
Read and transfer speeds are lightening fast. I transferred a 300gb folder from an external SSD and the data rate stay high and completed the transfer in no time.
I haven't had any issues with the SN550 so I don't have a bad word to say about it.
Temperatures seem normal for M.2 drives. I don't have a heat synch on it so it sits around 37C in my silent case. I'm sure if you had higher airflow constantly or a heat synch it would stay cooler.
I was tossing up between the SN550 and some more expensive options but I am really happy I chose this M.2.
For the cost, it's excellent. I don't think you would see drastic improvements if you spent another $100 on more expensive options.
Highly recommend this as a boot drive or media/gaming drive.
