For the price, this is a huge upgrade from the SATA SSD that I've been using. Unfortunately it thermal throttles easily. These need a heatsink and plenty of air movement. Something I can't provide since I'm using an ITX board which has the second NVME slot at the back of the mobo.
I can confirm that the performance issues (write speed) is down to thermal throttling. Write speeds were at around 700MBps but jumped up to 1600MBps when I installed a heat sink over the tiny sliver of metal they include as a heatsink. I believe I'd get better results if the sticker was removed altogether. However, this would void the warranty.
