The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

1TB Samsung PM981, M.2 (2280) PCIe 3.0 (x4) NVMe SSD, Polaris V2, TLC V-NAND, 3200MB/s Read, 2400MB/s Write, 380k/440k is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performing drive I bought this when it was £310 and it was a bargain. Even though it's gone up a bit in price it's still a great deal. Quoted speeds are virtually spot on, even using a Windows 10 driver and not a samsung one. It is an oem drive so it won't have a driver update through samsung magician but I sourced my last one for my PM961 through google but as I previously stated the one in Windows 10 works well. I put an EK M.2 heatsink on it (which was a bit tight to fit the retaining clips over due to the chip placement. It fits the EK one but just be careful) to help with the heat and I've never seen it pass the mid 40's Celsius on my rig. Great service yet again from Scan, thumbs up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't fault it Have been looking to add a 2nd M.2 for a while but the EVO 960 refused to drop in price - then this drive came onto my radar. It's the first of the new Samsung NVMe SDDs that feature the Polaris V2 controller - the previous drives all feature version 1. End result is both faster write and read, as shown by many online reviews. Comparing it in my own set-up shows that the often reported temperature related issues are non-existent in my set-up and I'm getting all of the performance expected. I'll upload some disk performance stats. The E: drive is for EVO960. The P: drive is for Polaris PM981. You'll see it outperforms the EVO 960 across the board for a lower price.
