Good solid drive from a good solid company, great warranty, great price per gig ratio, and very good performance.

QLC will not be an issue for 95% of people out there.

let see how people complain about this drive when drive is full, reliability due to endurance, and triggered people saying this drive is worthless at this price point simply because it's QLC.

I'd be a fan once the price hits $75 considering the price of Phison E12 based ssd's performance.

if one can only use about 70% of the drive, it should be around 60-65$ imo before it's a deal.

If you keep this drive lightly loaded, it offers amazing performance, often competing well against other, much more expensive NVMe drives. If you load it to nearly full, performance can drop precipitously. However, as AT notes, it's actually rare for drives to be hammered this much. Most users have relatively light storage workloads, and a flexible drive like this can offer high performance through most of its capacity.
I also like these reviews:

Bought this on a previous deal to use as my boot and steam library (2-3 games at a time). This thing is a beast. Boots up my pc in about 5 seconds. For your average consumer looking for a nice alternative to storage, this is a great price. Wish I waited a little sooner for the game pass but I'll take what I get.

Ok, back to installing a couple dozen games, and transferring the installation files to an old 2TB hard drive, when not using.
It should only take a minute to transfer back smaller games under 3GB, and 15-20 minutes for certain 50+GB games.

i was able to install this hard drive in a 2015 macbook air 13. i had to use an NGFF adapter to make this M.2 connect. the issue later was that the hard drive was not visible or detected in in disk utility to format it. i tried removing the hard drive and put it in an external caddy which at that point the computer can see it as an external hard drive. i proceeded to format it to mac os and then installed the mojave os... reinstalled the drive in the computer and still not visible. what did finally worked was making a bootable installer with the mojave os and then run the computer off that. it seems these adapters could not let the system initialize and install this hard drive using wifi you had to download the MC OS first. anyway after installing from the bootable installer the system sees it fine. i restarted the computer with the installer out and went into disk utility Commad+R and now the computer could see it just fine... so no issue but i heard about some hibernation issue and enter the commands in terminal to keep it from hibernating too long. i left it alone at night and then came back next day... the computer turned on with no issue and only 1% loss of power. working fine next day all day and faster booting up times plus faster data transfer no drops. good luck
