"Absurdly fast and tiny"

By Tobi Smethurst on 3 July 2019

  • Pros:
    Ludicrously fast
  • Pros:
    Nice-lookin'
  • Con:
    Makes my other SDD look like hot garbage
  • Con:
    Loading times are too short--can no longer go make a cup of tea

It's absolutely wild how fast this thing goes, not just compared to a standard HDD but even compared to a SATA SSD (another Samsung). My PC now boots in seconds and my loading times no longer afford me the opportunity to go make a cup of tea or check my phone.

"Crazy fast ssd."

By Mathias Cloet on 7 October 2019

  • Pros:
    Fast
  • Pros:
    Easy install

The product is amazing, but for some laptop brands you'll have to open up the back which can be scary if you're not experienced.
