Industry Leading NVM Express
NVMe (Non-Volatile Media Express) is an SSD storage interface that sheds the burden of legacy AHCI commands for uncompromised performance that saves power even throughout data-intensive workloads over a 3-year period.
With a lower latency than that of today’s traditional hard disk drives and SATA SSDs, SBX drives create a more responsive computing experience.
Phison E8 Controller
The Phison E8 (PS5008-E8) controller was designed to provide an improved user experience at a competitive cost, without sacrificing quality. The E8 safeguards data with thermal throttling, end-to-end data path protection, Phison's proprietary StrongECC algorithm, and SmartECC engine to detect and correct data corruption while sustaining drive performance and low power consumption.
Additionally, the E8 controller offers power loss protection with GuaranteedFlush to prevent in-flight data loss from sudden power interruptions, advanced security features including Secure Erase, and support for APST / ASPM / L1.2 power saving modes, a key requirement for next-generation notebooks.
PCI Express Gen 3 x2
MyDigitalSSD SBX drives use a 16GB/s dual-lane PCI Express 3.0 (PCIe) interface to get more from your computing experience; delivering exceptional throughput performance and latency for a consumer solid state drive.
SBX PCIe Gen 3 x 2 lane drives are backward compatible with PCIe Gen 2 and Gen 1 interfaces; limited only by each respective bandwidth.

Installed it in a new Lenovo Flex 14" 2-in-1 laptop I got for Christmas. Had already replaced the stock 1TB rotating drive with a 256Gb Toshiba SSD for Windows 10, but wanted another drive for Linux.
Installed this drive and booted to a Live Linux USB. Took like 10 minutes to install Linux on this drive and reboot.
Boot time is down to like 4 seconds from Grub Boot loader screen to login screen. I get nearly 5 to 6 hours on Linux depending on what I am doing.
This drive is super responsive and above all, DOES NOT GET HOT like a lot of the M.2 drives I have read about. Having all memory chips on the one side makes installing it much easier than the double sides drives.
Would certainly recommend this to anyone wanting a solid M.2 drive at a great price point.
Remember, M.2 is just the form factor. M.2 drives can come in SATA versions (like the Crucial MX300 M.2 for example) and NVMe versions (like the Samsung 960 Pro), which describes the bus they use to electrically communicate with the other PC components. SATA M.2 SSD drives and 2.5” SATA SSDs actually operate at virtually identical spec. NVMe M.2’s on the other hand, definitely do not.
Modern motherboards use SATA III which maxes out at a throughput of 600MB/s (or 300MB/s for SATA II, in which case, it’s time to upgrade). Via that connection, most SSDs will provide Read/Write speeds in the neighborhood of 530/500 MB/s. For comparison, a 7200 RPM SATA drive manages around 100MB/s depending on age, condition, and level of fragmentation. NVMe drives, on the other hand, provide write speeds as high as 3500MB/s. That’s 7x over SATA SSDs!
ORIGINAL REVIEW: Got the 128 GB for my Intel NUC7i7BNH as a Windows 10 boot drive. The drive initially worked as expected with good speed numbers for the price. However, there is a bug in the drive firmware where the NUC BIOS fails to detect it after every shut down, requiring me to power-cycle my NUC to get it to detect the boot drive. That was an inexcusable nuisance and I had to return this drive. To confirm that this is indeed a fault of the drive and not my NUC unit, I subsequently tested with an used ADATA SU800 M.2 SATA and a new Samsung 970 Evo NVME with no such issues at all. I am currently running the 970 Evo and couldn't me more happy. I don't know if the firmware bug is more prevalent or is specific to Intel NUC's, but if this issue is fixed, this would be a decent and cheap NVME drive.
It's definitely not the fastest NVMe drive out there, but it's not marketed to be. This is a NVMe drive that is much faster (2X - 3X times) than good SATA SSD drives, at roughly the same price. People who are considering buying this drive should read some reviews to know exactly what they are getting. It will not compete with drives like the 960 EVO or the Intel 760p, but it also does not cost as much as those drives either.
didn't get temperature above 65º Celcius doing tests...
Had a litle problem to clone my windows 10 systems, because the free program EaseUS Todo Backup free didn't do the 4k alignment at the first clone pass. after playing with MBR / GPT booting recrod, i did it pass ....
Realy great little drive for the money.
Yet in some DBF reconstructions it is realy 10 to 20 porcent speedier than my old M500.
the test i put in attached png where done , having files downloading from internet, so, there isn't at best...
I put this stick on my MSI b350 board with Ryzen 1600 and had no issue at all. Installing new Windows was also breezy and fast without any problem. This is a great value for the money!
