    Nevermind. The motherboard has an mSATA, not an M.2.

    Received mine on Friday, but only got around to installing it yesterday. ~40 power on hours on mine, but very little other SMART data. Runs quite warm in my NUC (currently 55C). Not too worried though since this is just a HTPC.

    Here are my results from my desktop (Z170-AR):

    Much better read performance than I thought, but write isn't all that great. Oh well.

    Mine was new with zero use.

    Is this NVMe or AHCI?

    The latter of course.

    Here is the benchmark from my desktop. Similar results to above. Write could be better but its decent for the price.

    I attempted to use it as an SSD cache drive when doing a sync between my server and backup desktop. Stablebit Scanner notified me of it overheating (71C) in about 7 minutes worth of data copying. Maybe I can repurpose this into something else. Its form factor makes for a somewhat frustrating situation. May buy one of these so I can toss it into another box, though at this point I'm sort of throwing good money after bad:
