I don't do a lot of creative work (well, development is creative work but not "video" creative) that would require bandwith as large as the one the Samsung 960 EVO offers, so I went with this very not expensive SSD and it works very well, with a steady throughput : I tried copying files between USB3 and SSD and my USB3 wrote steadily at it top speed around 80MB/s !

It maybe not so fast, but enough for me. The only reason I bought this storage is because of the price is really cheap as a SSD. the M2 contact is very easy to install and no cable problems. Very good for the price.

Great speed, boots to desktop in something like 10 seconds.

Went with this on recommendations after originally planning on 970 Evo. Half the price and I'm not sure I'd notice the speed. I'm pleased so many folks pointed to these.

Performance close to the 860 EVO and was cheaper too. Will be plenty of fast storage for my mom.

I got this for $54. Amazing price. Installation was a breeze (it comes with two screws), and it's super fast. For gaming, SATA will suffice, however, if you're doing heavier work, NVMe will be better for you. The 500gb fills up fast, so depending on the games you play, you might want to get a bigger one.

First time using a M.2 drive in a desktop, but it makes for a much cleaner build as no additional cabling is required for the SSD.
