Note that this is only for a U.2 drive connector and not a SATA drive connector, despite it being a SATA drive. Look at the "Option" section before buying, SATA is not an option to buy, being greyed out.

While the plugs are identical, it will not work if you plug it into a SATA port as it uses NVMe as its protocol, unless your motherboard specifically supports U.2 over SATA. Please research your motherboard's compatibility before buying.

For more information on U.2 read here:

This hasn't been my experience at all, Windows 10 pro will install comfortably into 20GB of space. If you take care to clean up the windows update files regularly, and use the boot drive only for software installs and documents, you can go years with a 120GB drive. But of course with 240GB SSDs selling regularly for under $40 I probably won't be purchasing any more 120GB drives.

Hmm, I've always been scared of using any non-Samsung/Kingston/sandisk ssds for my boot drive. Am I crazy? This is a decent price and my Mac mini only has a 240gb main drive so this would be perfect.

Just look up reviews and see for yourself.

Calling this an "Ultimate" is a bit of a misnomer; it's an entry level SSD. Would be fine for most people, though.

Good catch, possibly the SATA version already sold out?

Just checked the manufacturer website, I see nothing showing any U.2 version of the SSD. Wouldn't make any sense. Sounds like Newegg pooched the listing.

That seems far more likely! Was confused why a low grade consumer SSD would have U.2 when that's for enterprise.

I just reinstalled a fresh Windows 10 onto a 1tb mushkin I bought off Amazon for $136. It is so fast and quiet I can't believe it. I wouldn't even install Windows onto anything less than a 1tb. I installed win 10 onto 256gb drives and even while installing everything I could on physical hard drives eventually the boot disk filled up with junk screwing me big time.
1 tb is the way to go. Biggest performance boost you can buy for the $$$!

Cool, needed an upgrade SSD for backup Steam drive. I've read that 15-20% of drive should be left free for wear - leveling, is that still the best practice for longevity?
