Oh my... do you want to talk about something that's amazing? I thought it was incredible when I saw how fast an SSD boots up. I had heard that NVMe was supposedly 7x as fast as traditional SATA SSDs. I was still wholly unprepared for just how awesome this thing is in practice. And it's tiny!! The whole thing rests on the motherboard and if you don't know where to look I swear you'd miss it. The fact that this tiny wafer of silicone is 1TB of storage is still blowing my mind. And the speed... my boot time is 4 seconds from pressing the power button to having a blank desktop. It's incredible. The one "complaint" I might have is that the installation made me sweat... you're handling a ridiculously small, even more ridiculously thin hard drive, and the way to install it is to plug it in at a 30 degree angle and then bend it down to screw it in to the motherboard... It feels very secure and I'm beyond happy now that it's in, but I'd be lying if I told you I didn't worry I might accidentally snap it during installation.

Fast boots, instantaneous load times for most programs. Comparable speeds to the 970 evo, as this is the performance NVMe drive from WD.
