    No complains at the performance, not at all! The price is really high comparing to some of its peers. Without a good deal I probably would not consider it. Another issue is the high temperature. Under load it can reach 70C easily. In average it stays art around 50C. I added a heatsink for it still not very helpful.

    from completed build Value build, no flashy, no rgb.

    After the rest of my build was decided I had like 100€ to buy storage. I think this drive is maybe not the best value choice but I don't need a lot of storage so I went for performance instead. I cosidered the adata xpg sx8200 pro option but it was only like 10€ cheaper so no point.

    Really fast load times on boot are like 2-5 seconds. Everything I put on it loads up fast including games. I wanted this so I can load premier files fast and it does just that.

    At first I was looking at the Intel 660p NVMe drive but I kept hearing several bad things about it. I could get this NVMe drive for only 20 euros more and although it has less GB, I prefer having a fast boot drive. It performs amazingly well.

    I replaced my media storage HDD with this drive and obviously, the increase in speed is astonishing. Loading times in games are barely existent anymore but that comes at a pretty high price. I probably wouldn't recommend this drive for games only but if you do a lot of video editing and more demanding workloads, in general, the speed will make up for the price eventually.

    My first m2 and first NVMe. Blazing fast but a little concerned about heat, currently idling at 50c which appears about norm, I’ve just never had to factor in HDD heat before

    This is where I am planning to store my After Effects Project Files. Haven't tested it out but I expect it to be very fast.

    Price to performance on this m.2 is amazing! I boot into windows in 15 seconds! I dont think i can go back to sata after experiencing m.2 nvme speeds!

    Incredibly fast, faster than what I've ever experienced. I've been copying gigabytes of backups on my new system with this drive and the progress bars are just flying by.

    from completed build Aorus Aquarium

    Fast, like really fast. Compared to a standard SSD even. I have a boot time of 8.9 seconds, which for me is great considering the high usage programs I have on start up. But I am sure there are better products out there for its price. One thing to note, it runs a very hot. My motherboard came a M.2 heat sink, which had the drive running at 70-80 degrees under load. This posed the risk of thermal throttling. So I bought a EK m.2 heat sink (shown in the pictures) which dropped the temperature by around 10-15 degrees under load.
