The drive came in an anti-static bag without any instructions. That's okay for me as I knew (roughly) what to do, but it's clearly not being sold as a consumer drive yet. It's simple enough though: locate the M.2 socket on the motherboard (near the front of the case with the SATA ports, check your motherboard instructions), remove the screw a few inches to the left, clip the drive into the socket (it will only go in one way) then use the screw to fix the other end into place (don't tighten it too much).
I've had no problems with the drive. But one thing to note is that these can get VERY HOT. They have no heatsinks, unlike PCI-E SSDs.Read more ›
Down side: this product is using SATA route which means its nothing different than SATA version, both them get the AS SSD Benchmark score around 970-1000. So it is not playing all the power of M.2, and also not working well like other SSD using PCIE route. Waiting for the PCIE version if you are looking for higher performance SSD.
