Price is good, but I'll still prefer Sammy 960 for few bucks more. Have one for a while and Sammy is a steady performer. This thing however, seems to fall short. On the specs sheet at least. Sammy gives you nearly double the speed for less then 50 bucks more when on sale. And if you are not looking for top speed, get normal SSD and don't waste money on NVMe. Real world difference is not significant for an average user.

Slower nvme is more applicable for laptops

Does it need additional heatsink? Anything special it needs?

Only thing I'm concerned about with this one is that it requires quite a bit of power to run, so if your on a laptop it may drain the battery quicker. https://www.anandtech.com/show/11...d-review/8

No, BUT nvme drives are not compatible with SATA. They run on the PCIe lanes. You have to either have a slot on your mobo specified for nvme m.2 or you need a PCIe card adapter.

Most Motherboards made in the last 2-3 years will have at least one.

There are also as of yet no working USB adapters either yet so make sure you back up everything you put on these, because until the technology finishes going main stream you will have a hard time getting data off the drive.

Middle of the road drive - almost identical to the 512GB ADATA XPG SX7000 (main difference being OP's drive has a heatsink) which was available for $127 recently.
