Fast, but definitely not reliable because it brick/failed on me after just 2 months of mild use

Best buy on the market considering performance and storage capacity. It's faster than WD Black and Seagate Barracuda as tested with CrystalDiskMark. In short, sequential read/write are over 190 MB/s. The only downside is rather high "spin up retry count" as within 1000 working hours it already has already 4, 5 or more, while WD and Seagate have 0, but that shouldn't affect its lifetime or performance during the 5 year period. Afterwards, it's questionable.
