If you have the PCI-E lanes to support it... This is hilariously potent. Read/writes out of this world, that only workstations would ever truly find useful, if even that. For games, you'll never worry about load times again. [Aug '19 xDEFCONx]


Probably the best SATA III SSD you can buy for 60 US Dollar. Offered excellent performance (albeit it won't match any NVMe ones!) and suitable amount of capacity for that price. Overall a reliable all around SSD for nearly every computers unless if the computer has no support for SATA which means your computer is too old! [Nov '19 ColdSpy]
