1TB Samsung PM961 Polaris M.2 (22x80) PCIe 3.0 (x4) NVMe SSD, Read 3000MB/s, Write 1150MB/s, 360k/280k IOPS is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wrong performance stated So, just built a new gaming rig 7700k, Hero IX, 1080Ti etc. Did lots of research on the M.2 and found that on the Samsung site they quote a much higher write rate for the 1TB version (about 1700MB/s). The low write rate quoted on this sire was putting me off slightly, which was the main reason I was considering other units. Installed and benchmarked and it came out to about 1750MB/s write, so comparable and better value than the Samsung Evo and Pro. No problems with drivers or installation, went like a dream!! PC boots in about 12 seconds. Noticed it has gone up about 30 quid since I got it in April.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Performance claims are wrong Briefly stated: The performance is way off the claims and it's expensive for what it is. Recommend not buying this. The read/write capabilities are more like 2650MB/sec and 370 MB/sec for sequential, and as low as 1.9 MB/sec for 4k randoms. This is *terrible*, particularly for the cost. The housing of this chip looks as described, but it's hard to explain how cheap this feels.
