    "I installed this in an Acer Aspire 5 that came with only 256Gb and it has been running trouble-free for 2 years, just like my retired 2008 Macbook Pro did with a Samsung SSD....Great general duty drive from Samsung...My SSK external enclosure works very well and I have been happy with the speed of several M.2 drives I've used in it. I had a 980 PRO 2TB drive in it until not long ago and ran CrystalDiskMark 8 to see how they compared. "
