Great budgetary nvme drive ; it has been a massive increase in speed compared to the hdd i was using . Would recommend getting a 1 tb version as with the size of recent games , that is what you'll be needing . [Jun '21 mirr123]


Decent pricing for a speedy 1TB SSD, Only drive needed for a gaming pc. [Jul '19 Richfart]
