    "Solid fast drive...I decided to install this on a new computer build I was doing. The hard drive so far is performing super well. Prior to this hard drive, I had 2 samsung m2 drives installed, one 960 Evo and one 960 Pro. ...My testing fell just short of those rated "up to" numbers, but they were very close, and markedly faster than any other NVMe drive I own. My fastest reads were 7211MB/s and my fastest writes were just a shade under 7000MB/s, at 6970MB/s, so I'd call the speed ratings accurate to real world experience. "
