Used this SSD since 2015 in a build that was given to me, used it as a boot drive and at the time it worked great. Now I'm using it for the last time as a storage drive on my current system, I will be upgrading to a much faster one by the beginning of the new year. Seq Q32T1 [Read] 105.6 MB/s & [Write] 106.1 MB/s 4Kib Q8T8 [Read] 0.596 MB/s & [Write] 0.692 MB/s 4Kib Q32T1 [Read] 0.612 MB/s [Write] 0.660 MB/s 4Kib Q1T1 [Read] 0.312 MB/s & [Write] 0.664 MB/s As you could imagine the rest are quite slow once you compare them to reviews and benchmarks of this particular SSD that is brand new. At the end of the day if this is one your looking at getting AVOID, by today's standards the poor thing is slow and for me it didn't age well, (like myself) if you like me, already have one UPGRADE you'll thank yourself later when you are able to load into application quicker whether that be your OS or a video game.

One of the faster hard drives out there.


Average

Could be quite a bit better, but on the other hand significantly worse. It's a hard drive. It is noticeably slower than popular desktop drives, but does what it needs to.

Good quality build HDD for Laptop. Not the greatest, but is not lacking anything.


Excellent

A really good Laptop HDD, not that slow like most HDDs.
