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

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 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and simple setup.. Recommended A***** I was a little nervous as reading forums people were having problems with Asus Prime X-370 Pro.. I set this up with no problems at all using Samsung's Data Migration.. Unplug all other drive except the one to be copied, start PC and SDM software wait until finished, switch off plug in all other drives and restart.. This is a fast drive, my PC still starts in about the same time but programmes load faster now, my old drive was a Samsung 840 pro ssd.. Speeds are now making the old drive look slow, which it isn't!! Fantastic drive, easy to fit, very fast, Samsung quality..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whoosh Bought this for my new build I’ve never used one before, but I will from now on. Never had windows load as fast it’s just awsome and for the price it’s best bit of kit to buy for your PC. Can recommend this for anyone still thinking about getting one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy fast, easy to setup Heard a few issues with boards not detecting this to fresh install Windows on. Had no issues at all and it's ridiculously quick. I recommend installing Samsung Magician as I achieved much better performance as opposed to the Windows supplied drivers.

Questions & Answers

Can i boot from this drive Samsung 500GB 960 Evo PCIe Solid State Drive/SSD MZ-V6E500BW when using on m.2 slot on ASUS Z170M-PLUS Motherboard matx

Asked by: Russdb7
I would think it should be fine, it worked with no problems on my Prime x-370 pro.. I didn't need to change anything in the bios either.. I used Samsung's Data Migration software and left the old drive in, Windows auto changed the old C drive to K drive and booted from the 960..
