Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performance If you PC can support/boot from PCIe NVMe you have to buy one Supported under WIndows 10 default , Windows 7 requires an update to support these devices

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bit pricey, But great drive Brought one of these from Scan last week, as usual, excellent service and very fast delivery. I installed it into an MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon and booted to the bios, couldnt see it anywhere in the bios, so switched off, unplugged all my other drives and booted to the bios once again, I still couldnt see it, then thought to myself, well its not really an SSD as such as it runs on the PCI-e lanes, so proceeded to install Windows 10, the windows setup found the drive and all was good in the world once again !!! Immediately after the initial setup was complete, I rebooted back to the bios before completing the 2nd part of the Windows setup, and the drive appeared in boot devices. I want to get another one as 250gb isnt really enough, I have 97gb of space left so far so its almost full, I'll RAID0 them together, not for performance reasons but for space reasons, its just easier this way, lost no performance at all on the drive, very fast drive, Windows boots in a matter of seconds (see the vid below) powered on the computer when you see the monitor flicker. p.s, this drive is tiny, way smaller than I was expecting, its a little bit longer than a USB stick without the plastic case on it to give you some idea, but very fast. Unfortunately, I wont be purchasing from Scan as they put the price of this drive up, unless they drop the price again, I'll purchase from elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very nice to have I used this in conjunction with an adaptor card to fit it into my older PC. The drivers have to be installed from the internet. I have run no speed tests , but an application that was previously on a 512MB/s R/W ssd certainly did load in a much faster time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product I could not afford the Samsung pro so went for the evo. It is an awesome product very fast compared to my old HDD. Boot time is now a few seconds. It's a no brainier if you are on a budget. Would always recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blazing fast, great value drive! I bought one for my latest PC and (after a BIOS update to make my slightly older MSI Gaming Krait X3 recognise it) was instantly impressed with boot times. Ran Crystal Disk Mark on a fresh Windows 10 install and got 3261MB/s Read speeds and 1511MB/s Write speeds. After filling the drive to 24% capacity, speeds dropped a little to 3173MB/s Read and 1298MB/s Write which is still awesome and a cold boot to desktop is ~5 Seconds! This drive lives up to the hype. I was so happy with the performance and price that I bought another for my dad's PC. And he is also very happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awsome works flawlessly and is super fast. compared to my samsung 840 pro ssd this is on a completely different level easy to instal easy to setup and small and out the way fantastic ssd

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first NVMe Installation is as easy as installing RAM. Performance is like the difference between a hard drive and a SSD but between this NVMe and SSD drive.
Date published: 2017-03-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Evolution of SSDs While I wasn't predicting a big increase of performance, it turned out to be another leap in load times in many games in compared to Samsung 850 SATA series. Definitely worth the upgrade for regular SSDs, at least for the partition system. Plus the fact that it doesnt take the space in the case for the new enormous 1080s.. The price is a bit steep, but it's definitely worth it.
