What customers say about "Key Specs"
Corsair MP500 (CSSD-F240GBMP500) 240 GB Force M.2 NVMe SSD MLC NAND Flash Memory
  • This drive is mind-blowingly quick. It should also last, carrying as it does a hefty 800TBW endurance rating.
  • With a Windows 10 install done in UEFI bios mode, and with Ultra-Fast boot enabled (shortly after clean install), booting took literally only 2-3 seconds from BIOS to desktop. It was "blink and you might miss it" quick. Absolutely stunning.
  • This drive is fast, one of the fastest M2 drives I have used so far.
  • The M2 has absolutely sent my gaming to a next level. Arma 3 has gone from high to ultra and now runs at 80fps instead of around 40fps with no zoom in lag etc.
  • Poor quality, i had one fail just after installing windows!!

What customers say about "Features"
Corsair MP500 (CSSD-F240GBMP500) 240 GB Force M.2 NVMe SSD MLC NAND Flash Memory
  • Installing the drive was a breeze. Drives came with the single screw that is required to hold the drive in place. Does require a very fine philips head screw driver.
  • Very easy to install, W10 Professional boots in seconds, plenty of space for future upgrades to operating system, very well priced.
  • I decided on this SSD because of its very high endurance rating.
  • Put Windows 10 Pro onto it from new install. PC would freeze quite often. Only when the SSD was in use.
  • This drive runs very hot, almost too hot!
