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

Solid-state drives (SSDs) are fast becoming the must-have PC components of 2010. Serving as primary storage space for high-end computers, SSD's super-fast transfer rates and near-instant accesses offer genuine advantages over traditional spindle-based magnetic drives.

A motherboard’s main job is to act as a conduit between the various hardware elements that make up a PC. It needs to be able to link the desired CPU(s), system memory, graphics card, hard drive(s), and add-in cards and enable them to work in harmony.

500GB Samsung 960 Evo, V-NAND, M.2 NVMe PCIe Gen 3.0 x4, 3200MB/s Read, 1800MB/s Write, 330K/330K IOPS is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast (In benchmarks) and reliable This is the second 960 Evo I have had experience of. If you already have a conventional SATA SSD then no, you won't notice a mind blowing increase in performance. However, you will in benchmarks. In my opinion this NVMe drive will be appreciated by enthusiasts like me, but is probably not the best choice for anyone on a budget, or anyone looking for a significant, noticeable, increase in performance. Boot times are lower, but other than that you may not be able to tell the difference between this and a basic 850 Evo SSD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievely fast NVMe I bought this card not expecting to see much increase over sata SSD but boy was i wrong, this thing is phenomena. I already had an 850 evo sata ssd and it already felt quick but loading games of this is massively faster, playing Assassins Creed Origins loads now in about 4- 8 seconds when using fast travel, compared to 15 - 25 previously. Numbers don't seem a lot, but in reality it feels almost instant now. The only issue i had is when i first fitted it, my Asus X99 deluxe board wouldn't auto detect it as a Gen3 device, and set it to GEN 2 meaning i was getting half the speed i should have been getting, after 2 hours of diagnosing in the bios i had to manually set PCIe Slot 4 to GEN 3.. possibly a firmware bug.. reported to ASUS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny I upgraded to this from a Western Digital 2.5" SSD, and the difference is simply stunning. Window's, Games, Spreadsheet's etc all load so much faster. It was easy to install as well, and get Windows installed on it. I will eventually upgrade this to a 1TB or 2TB version but for now this will do. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So fast! My windows machine boots in seconds. Had no issues installing. There are some extra software and drivers you can download from the Samsung website to help migrate things over to this drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast No issues, very fast - what more can be said! A bit pricey but Scan's prices compare well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightning fast and a free game code This tiny little speed demon lives under a nice sized removable heatspeader on my asus z370f mobo out of sight and works magic. Great for editing and video work and it came with a free copy of assassins creed origins to boot which is a nice addition for distractions from my work! The z370 bios has 0 issues from the get go of identifying it and using it as the boot drive also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value against performance for an NVMe drive Just wanted to get the speed for writing smaller files, rather than very large ones. Would need the PRO version for that. Excellent drive for ASUS ROG STRIX X99 motherboard. Detected right from the off, once the latest firmware was installed.
Date published: 2017-10-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and easy to install So easy to install this with only a small config change in the bios. Use it for a game install location and performs very well!
