work great By:
WD are the only brand I use in making my systems and for back ups. This worked as expected when I upgraded my MSI laptop. Looking at getting another one for my wife's laptop.

M.2 WD Blue Sata III 1TB By:
My laptop is an Acer Predator Helios 300. A great laptop but the M.2 SSD provided with the machine is only 250gb and I need plenty of storage space on my computer. I found the M.2 WB Blue 3D NAND 1TB on Amazon and noticed it's giant 1TB of space, low power requirement and excellent price. There are much faster M.2 PCIE drives for sale but the price is double the amount so I figured as long the WD Blue drive can mach the speed of the current fast M.2 Sata drive installed in my laptop it will be just fine. After a fresh install of windows with this disk installed I ran ASSD disk benchmark and the "WD Blue 3D Nand" beat my old drive with a 20-25% speed increase. I think it's about as fast as Sata can be! I'm really happy, it's fast for a Sata disk and the low power requirement gives my laptop battery an easy time. The 5 year read-write warranty on this disk is also brilliant and the price is superb... Buy one :)
PC boots ultravfast now By:
Love it. Less than 15 secs for PC to boot.
Boot up is skyrocket By:
Replaced my 5400 rpm HDD for this and made it a whole lot smoother..only had a struggle with trying to install my laptop version of windows 10 (recovery format option)and had to disable the SATA port , cause in the recovery installation it wouldn't give me a choice to reformat and install on a different drive than what it came with. Problem solve. my windows 10 boots up in less than 10 secs, definitely worth the money. But if i would have had a fresh OEM Windows 10 edition , i wouldn't have had any issues installing it to the SSD. Learn something new everyday , i am satisfied
Great valve for benefit in non sealed laptops By:
The installed and work great. It's like 45% faster
Great By:
Used drive in diy usb drive and now I have very fast usb drive
Simple By:
It gets the job done right, easy install.

Fast and sleek! By:
Good quality
Works with the Razer Blade Pro 2018 By:
I love how easy and reliable Samsung SSDs are compared to the competition. After years of buying, using and testing multiple generations from all different companies, these are the most reliable in my opinion.
Samsung SSD! By:
We buy these for brand new Dell laptops with 500 GB spindles for half what Dell wants to charge us for a generic SSD. This way we save about $100 and end up with a spare 500 GB spindle.
Excellent speed By:
This drive performs as advertised subject to hardware configuration. I like the fact that the temperatures are carefully controlled.
install another great Samsung SSD drive By:
Installed this in our NUC and it is working great!
A must have upgrade. By:
Installed windows 10 in this. HOLY %##$ what a difference in boot times and responce times.
You want super fast loading get this then! By:
This was the best addition I’ve made to my gaming rig! I’ve had other SSDs in my rig before but having this for my OS and a few other items I want to load extremely fast, well this did the trick!
super fast By:
so fast my motherboard couldnt handle the full potential, my mobo max out at 800mbps lol. Still faster than a majority of nvme ssds
10 non-spinners outta 10 By:
Ain't new tech wonderful. Computers start on a dime now. Took my old SSD and upgraded my laptop, and now all three of my units are spinning drive free. You cannot hit the power button anymore, go make coffee, return, and see the screen come up. Takes seconds to load win7 or win10, both are the same load times now!! Spinning hard drives are for storage now, or back up. Join the new millennium of technology. Putting the drives on my win10 was a snap, and likewise cloning my laptop spinny drive to the old win10 SSD. Get one!!
works on my MBP 2015 By:
my original hard drive died, used a connector to install this onto my MBP, newer and bigger! great upgrade.

It is OK so far. By:
Too expensive.
Excellent SSD By:
I've purchased several of the 250gb and 500gb 3D Nand SSD's from Western Digital. I love them. The price just keeps coming down on them and makes even better. Huge speed upgrade for those older laptops that are super slow to breathe some new life into them. I used to purchase other name brand SSD drives and had nothing but issues. Once WD came out with their Blue SSD's I've bought them and they've worked flawlessly.
PS4 pro compatible By:
Used it on my PS4 pro for my most played games. Have an external for my other games.
take extra caution while taking a part your laptop or PC you could damage Vital wiring. By:
I like the fact that it was easy to install lightweight and install the OS for my Mac and it is 75% faster than using a standard solid state hybrid drive or any standard disk Drive great I would buy it again.
Todo bien By:
Todo bien
Fast!!! Very Fast By:
Fast drive!!! So fast compared to mechanical 7200. Have an i7 and this made a ridiculous difference in speed. Formated and installed windows 10 in about 5 minutes. Litterally setting up wallpaper and icons within 10.Price not great but not bad either.Would buy again from this vender.Also, Western Digital has always been good to me.
Very good By:
Fast shipping and good quality
Great By:
A great ssd
Very fast shipping! By:
I like very much. The shipping is very fast. The SSD is compatible with my MacBook pro 13 inch late 2011. Satisfied!!!!

Fast and cheap By:
Super fast, super cheap. What’s to dislike?
Great iops and performance By:
This is an excellent SSD Drive for running VMs on a laptop.
You can’t go wrong with Micron/Crucial By:
easy install in HP Zbook15 G3, replaced company provided 500GB classic HDD. Acronis sw (Crucial customers version, check the leaflet in the package) which can be used freely migrated full windows and data in 15min. Long time Micron/Crucial customer so I might be bit biased but I find them as “best bang for the buck” especially considering high reliability of their devices
10/10 will buy again when price drops. By:
Load times are stupid fast compared to SSD or HDD.
Awesome performance By:
I updated my wife's Dell Laptop that we bought at Costco. IT has great specs, but a 5400 rpm HD and was sluggish. I installed the 256 SSD and oh my gosh, it runs like a demon now.
Excellent hard drive - used in Intel NUC By:
Put this into an Intel NUC about a month ago and it works great, the PC is SUPER FAST especially boot and shutdown with this SSD hard drive in it. It is very easy to install - just plug it in.
As advertised By:
Now that motherboards and their related chipsets have multiple M.2 slots, there's less and less reason to have any 2.5" SATA SSDs at all. I bought this drive to store my Steam library and other various game titles where reduced loading time is a priority, and it's been entirely trouble-free. I admit that the drive gets a little toasty under sustained write loads; I wish I could find a nice heatsink for a double-sided M.2 drive, but no luck so far. Crucial's management software is not as slick or polished as Samsung Magician, but it works fine and given the drive's intended use, I never have too many reasons to open the Storage Executive. The biggest (facetious) complaint I have is how much cheaper the drive is now than when I got it. The pitfalls of being an early adopter.
works with Ryzen By:
I have a Ryzen system and as many know it is picky as to what works for ram and M.2 drives. This worked with first boot. Read and write speeds are nice and fast even though it is only Sata3 speeds
It does what it says it does. By:
Easy to install, easy to recognize. I struggled with a Samsung model for days before I took the chance on this
Great price. By:
This was such a great bargain at a time when SSD prices are heading down. It was easy to install and love the fact that it directly connects to the motherboard instead of a standard 2.5in SSD where you need SATA cable and power from the PSU.
