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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great PC upgrade What else is there to say apart from making your PC heck of a lot faster then using hard drives, especially heavy work load programs like cad or video working etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very fast, and high quality. Samsung is a quality brand, and it shows in this product Also the speed from the 960 Evo is phenomenal, from a cold start i can count to three and windows 10 is loaded ready to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is as fast as expected. If you need that speed then its a no-brainer. But just for gaming a simple SSD would suffice.
Date published: 2017-11-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from v fast but tricky to configure it works fine and is fast but I still haven't got windows 10 to install to it, probably should e-mail m/board manufacturer. possibly worth getting the next size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My initial experience of the device 250GB Samsung 960 Evo, 3D V-NAND, M.2 PCIe Gen 3.0 x4, NVMe 1.1, 3200MB/s Read, 1500MB/s Write, 330K/300K IOPS I have just carried out an upgrade on my ATX based PC I have enough hard disk space for my needs but something faster was needed for the Windows 10 operating system. My new motherboard an Asus a Z270-P has two M.2 slots which will accept Samsung 960 Evo or Pro so this device enables much faster read and write speeds than a traditional hard disk. Windows now opens in seconds. But the benefits don’t end there since Windows employs a Pagefile to assist with speed of operations that is usually placed on the Boot drive so Windows operates in a much quicker and smoother way generally. The drive its self consists of a circuit board approximately 80mm x 20mm Full instructions are provided but essentially take ESD precautions to prevent damage to the drive and other components when handling, plug the drive connector in at an angle then lower the other end carefully and secure with the small screw to the motherboard or card. There are at least two ways to set this as the Boot device, Samsung provide free to download drive cloning software and a driver. Windows 10 also provides a driver that works with the device to so if you are adding this to a functional PC this is an easy way to set this up. I preferred to make a new installation of Windows 10 on my new device, however depending on the Bios of your motherboard I would advise reading up about UEFI bios Windows 10 and GPT partition table format since Windows may need the drive formatting prior to installation. Samsung also provides an SSD maintenance software tool (Samsung Magician) which employs Trim to keep the drive in tip top condition. Finally I have read that M.2 drives can run hot I haven’t noticed this with the 960 Evo particularly but I have added my own thermostatic cooling system for the drive as a precaution, it is possibly the higher spec Pro version that others have commented on as running hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can notice a big difference when upgrading from a sata sad! The device is absolutely tiny, I was expecting it to be about the size of a stick of ram. The transfer rate between this and the sata ssds I have as slaves is insane, a film copies over on to my desktop in seconds. My particular motherboard ( Rog strix x299 gaming) has a heat shield to install pcie M.2s behind, weird to think my hard drive is actually hidden on my motherboard.

Questions & Answers

Will this work with my asus x99-s motherboard?

Asked by: steverozuk
I have since been advised by Asus that the x99-s motherboard does not support NVME so the read/write speed may not be achieved. Only PCIE SSD only.
