Fast enough. If you can find it on sale, it's a good value.

I wound up getting this because it was well reviewed and was comparable to the Samsung 960 Evo I wanted to get originally.
The 480GB was the largest that was offered, and though it wasn't quite the 512GB I wanted with Samsung it was plenty big enough to store my OS and other programs I wanted fast access to.
Its read/write speeds are as follows:
Max Sequential Read Up to 3000 MBps (ATTO) Up to 2800 MBps (CDM)
Max Sequential Write Up to 2400 MBps (ATTO) Up to 1500 MBps (CDM)
This is pretty much what the Samsung will do, and since this was in stock I got it. I love it and have no regrets!! It was instantly recognized and everything loaded to it with no problems.
My mobo did come with the mount and screw to hold it in place so that made me happy. I didn't need to make a trip to the hardware store!
