from completed build My first build - Skylake Gaming PC
I was initially thinking of the Samsung 850 Evo. However, I saw this unit and it had similar specs at a cheaper price. The color scheme of this unit matched my build better than the Samsung so i thought i would give it a try. No issues so far.

By far the best $140 I spent. My system boots up in less than 10 seconds. I love it. The drive looks nice in black/red.

Got it for a very good price and couldn't say NO. Eventhough i planned to install a 850 Pro i gave PNY a try. Lets see how it will work out for me. Barely found any reviews about this drive.

This price point was a little high compared to similar SSDs, but the styling matches my particular case well. I'm enjoying my fast boot time! 5/5

from completed build "The Storm" Gaming and 3D Content Creation Computer
This SSD was only $109.99 when I bought it, which is a kick-*** deal. But over time, boot times worsened. When I ran a CrystalDiskMark benchmark with a 16GB sample, I found the 4K IOPS performance to fall to 106 MB/s random reads, and 105 MB/s random write. I don't know if this is normal for SSD's, especially the Samsung drives, but this is pathetic in my mind. But it's got 480GB of storage which I use to hold all of my commonly-used programs and my Windows 10 Pro on here.
UPDATE: After looking at the sequentials, for a 16GB-sized sample, the performance blows, so I docked another star from the overall rating. The advertised sequential write is 520 MB/s.

Great SSD for a great price. That being said, when I bought the SSD, it was $108.

My boot from my 2015 PC. The first PC I built at home. The SSD is a little newer than the old build, and now it lives in my newest build holding video games. Still kicking on all four cylinders, it's not top of the line but it gets the job done.

Fantastic at least as far as clean installs go. Put one in my old laptop a few months ago worked like a charm and dramatically improved performance. If anyone is planning a migration PNY does offer free software for cloning drives can't speak to how good it is though. I was so happy with the laptop upgrade though that I had to have one for the rig.
