To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
For the first time ever, I installed a component in my computer and it just doesn't work. Neither side.
It is not an installation issue, I have done this this kind of upgrade for others before. I chose to review BECAUSE of that fact. This card simply appears to be a dud. Brought it to a friend's place to dbl check in his system, same result. It happens... unfortunately.
I will say this, if you are not used to this kind of upgrade, the documentation included will not be a great help.
My husband installed the card just to find out that it's not working. After reviewing thousands of products, it still surprises me when I get to review a brand-new low-quality product that is useless out-of-the-box. Why on earth someone bothers to invest in designing and manufacturing products without passing them through testing and quality control. The rapidly growing amount of garbage-bin-worthy products on the market is depressing.
Extra bracket mounting screw. Missing SSD mounting screw. This is a common mistake manufacturers make. The adapter manufacturers don't want to reduce their profit by 0.1¢ or pass it on to their customers. The SSD manufacturers don't want to reduce their profit by 0.1¢ or pass it on to their customers. Until I can find a supplier for the SSD mounting screw this product is a paperweight. I would gladly pay an extra penny for a product which I can assemble, install, and then use. I found a DIY supplier who would sell me 9 screws for 9¢ plus $49.00 shipping!
Simply doesn't work, one slot is too tight, and neither slot works with my m.2 NVMe drive. SATA cable or not.
NOTE: Those who are complaining the stand off doesn't work are doing it wrong. The ring slot on the stand off slides on to the end of your SSD and then you screw it on through the back side. Hope that helps someone.
