    Having a reliable SSD is essential for some of the photo editing and gaming that I like to do from my PC. This product has been very useful for my needs overall. Typically, I like to test the benchmarks using a utility program and some real world scenarios to see what specs have been embellished. The sequential reads I’ve received have been great and pretty consistent thus far. I did observe some warm temperatures while in use, but it didn’t last long. This SSD is a winner.

    Gotta tell ya this M.2 is pretty good drive notice the pics? the P5 read/write are 2-3xs faster dont know whats with the windows boot speed but the other 2 drivers loaded windows in a 15-20 secs times frame the P5 only 14 secs…some streaming games may start faster then others opening apps about a second, now if you are wondering if you will get more fps with this drive theres a slight chance but for me it didnt i mean when i had the intel 760p with fortnite i used to get an average 120fps now under 80fps still thats better then nothing, anyways i do recommend this ssd for whatever you need it the price should be under $100 lucky i got it on sale.

    The Crucial P5 NVME drive lived up to its marketing claims and delivered great performance on my Windows 10 PC. Everything was sped up, like video-editing, gaming, and transferring large files. The 5-year warranty is awesome and the price is competitive and reasonable. It’s a win!
    -Fast for gaming, editing work, and file transfers.
    -Easy install on my Win10 PC.
    -Good pricing and value.
    -5-year warranty.
    -The drive runs a bit warm and could benefit from an aftermarket heatsink.
    The P5 was my first experience using a drive from Crucial (Micron) and my experience with it has been all positive. I usually get Samsung drives because they’re rated tops most of the time but the P5 from Crucial have changed my perspective and I’m glad to see other companies bringing down the heat on the competition.
    The installation of the P5 was a simple affair. Since my motherboard’s two M.2 NVME slots were already occupied, I used a PCI Express NVME adapter card and installed it to the secondary x16 PCIe slot on the motherboard underneath my graphics card. At first, Windows 10 didn’t recognize the drive but I got it to show up by going into Computer Management -> Disk Management, and initializing the drive. Soon after, it was available as a 931.50 GB NTFS drive ready to go.
    Because I know NVME drives are great for gaming and video editing, I began installing some games onto it, as well as transferring large 4K@60fps files from my GoPro Hero 8 and Autel Evo 4K drone. Not surprisingly, the games installed really fast and file transfers completed in mere seconds.
    The games I played on the P5 include Red Dead Redemption 2, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Resident Evil 3 Remake. In all cases, the loading times were kept short and noticeably faster than when playing the same games on my older non-NVME Samsung SSD that runs on the SATA-3 interface. It’s not a huge difference but still tangible and appreciated.
    I noticed a bigger improvement when performing video editing work on the P5 NVME than on the non-NVME drive on my PC with an Intel Core i7 9900 (8-core) and 32GB of RAM. I use CyberLink PowerDirector 18 and encode my videos in H.265. The time I saved per video project averaged about 15%; it’s not a mind-blowing improvement but appreciated nonetheless. The final render times got shortened by only a little bit but the editing process was improved with less dropped frames and smoother playback during previews.
    I benchmarked the P5 with CrystalDiskMark 7.0.0 and the results were excellent (see pic). At a queue depth of 8, I got a sequential read speed of 3,444.42MB/s and a sequential write speed of 3,207.74MB/s. Among all the drives I own, the P5 performed the best in CrystalDiskMark and beat out even my slightly older (and more expensive) Samsung Evo 970 Plus NVME by a few percentage points.
    When it comes to thermals, the P5 ran a bit warm but not worryingly so. At idle, the P5 reported 52 C in a room with a 77 F ambient temperature. My other NVME drive, a WD SN720 NVME, idled at 49 C. During load, the P5 went up to 60 C, well under the drive’s warning temperature threshold of 78 C and the critical temperature threshold of 81 C. How hot the P5 gets will depend on the airflow configuration of your desktop or laptop system. In my case, the P5 is installed in a large ATX case with one 200mm front fan, one 120mm rear fan, and a 240mm AIO watercooler from Corsair. In the near future, I’ll be applying a heatsink to the P5 to bring down the temperature a bit more.
    To manage the P5 from Win10, I downloaded the Crucial Storage Executive app and I liked it for its clean interface and ability to perform firmware updates.
    === Is it a good buy? ===
    Absolutely. You’re getting cutting-edge performance from a big brand-name company with a 5-year warranty.

    Fast! Achieves advertised R/W speeds. One of the best deals on a 1TB Gen3 NVMe SSD, with a 5 year warranty. I jumped on it when it was $109 and glad I did. Highly recommended.

    When I first installed the drive, I wasn’t really impressed, then installed the Crucial Storage Executive application from Crucial’s website and enabled the “Momentum Cache”. WHOA !
    See attachments – the one with the lower numbers are with default settings and no Storage Executive/Momentum Cache – the one with the massively higher benchmark scores is with the Momentum Cache.
    Quite the impressive jump!
    I’ve been using the drive all week , and I can definitely feel the difference above and beyond my old drive.
    A great upgrade for any computer that is compatable with an NVMe drive!2
    My testing was done a full sized desktop tower, so there were no issues with heat. Be sure to add a heatsink if you’re putting this in a laptop.

    Excellent quality, fast compared to the plextor m6e it replaced, better software. Looks nice too, almost a shame my vision g motherboard has heat sinks that cover it- although I prefer the heat sinks. The pictures are a comparison of the the plextor and the crucial speeds. Keep in mind the write cache was on during the crucial test.

    I used the Crucial P5 to replace a slower NVME drive in my laptop. I don’t think my system is allowing it to use its full bandwidth, but it’s about twice as fast regardless.
    Installation was a bit of a bear. I have only one NVME slot in my laptop, and so I had to use an external USB enclosure to clone my data. Crucial offers a free version of Arconis TrueImage (as a download from their website) that’s designed to work with their drives, but it only appears to detect drives connected directly to a computer’s NVME slot, so if you’re trying to transfer from an old NVME drive using an external connector, you may have to seek out a different solution.
    Once I got the drive cloned and installed, everything went smooth. My benchmarks don’t put it quite at what the specified claims are (and I never expected they would) it’s still very fast and significantly faster than the drive it replaced. Windows 10 cold-boots in about six seconds now.
    This comes very close to the speed of a top-end competitor, and I highly recommend it. Just be aware of potential issues when trying to clone data using an external enclosure and the provided software.

    It’s a great fast option for the price it went into a customers pc I was building an temps were decent on the drive I’m a fan of sabrent drives but you can’t beat the price per gb without losing quality
