There is a known firmware bug with this SSD that causes lockups with non-windows operating systems. Work arounds are possible but need a bit of work.

Not impressed

SSD Capacity: 250 GB

I managed to kill this within 48 hours. Apparently overheating under heavy continuous writing loads is not uncommon for this form factor and while the design of the case it was in has to share the blame somewhat it did have a heat transfer pad between the card and the aluminium chassis. I've never killed an M.2 drive before (I have several in constant use) so I was not impressed that it didn't go into thermal backoff or some kind of protection mode. I didn't bother replacing this but I happened to have a spare in a computer I decommissioned a while ago. That's surviving just fine in the same case. Cheap SSDs aren't worth saving a few bucks.

I cannot fault the SSD, good price, good value

SSD Capacity: 500 GB

I have been using the SSD in my MacBook Air for the last 2 or so months. I had to buy a converter to make it fit, but that was all part of the plan. This is great value for money. So far it has been reliable and has caused no issues for me what so ever. The MacBook runs well and now has about 4 times the storage capacity.
