Firstly, speed. This thing is fast. I was impressed when I upgraded to a standard SSD a couple years back which ran at around 500 MB/s. This is on another level. I get a consistent 3000MB/s read and 1500MB/s write. I am literally unable to use the speed available in this drive. I opted for the 250GB version so that I could upgrade to a RAID0 configuration down the line if need be, but honestly, I don’t need it. My PC starts up from cold as if it was in sleep. Programs start instantly, even CAD or editing software opens noticeably quicker. It’s insane.
Secondly, reliability. I checked the drive for faults when I got it and it was, unsurprisingly, perfectly healthy. The build quality is good too, installation is easy and feels sturdy, and looks much better than most M.2 SSDs.
I’m really happy with this product. I’ve had Samsung SSDs in the past and they’ve never let me down. They’re good quality and last a long time. I highly recommend this drive.

Blew my sata ssd out of the water.
Sequential Write : 3089.754 MB/s
Sequential Read : 1628.219 MB/s
Sequential Write : 559.2 MB/s
Sequential Read : 511.2 MB/s
I have also purchased the Asus Z370 Prime board with the I7 8700 Cpu and 16 gigs of DDR4 Ram.
I already have a SSD but decided to check out the M.2 Drive and here are my thoughts.
Bootup in 12 seconds from Bios and programs such as Camtasia Video editing opens in seconds with no splash screen.
Compared to my SSD this M.2 is very quick as I did a online benchmark and it rated it at 4x quicker than the SSD.
I only purchased the 250 Gb due to money restraints but next time I will get the larger one as they do rock.
I think they are great for Video processing and photos and faster applications but on gaming I have not tried yet but your processor and Ram and video card come more into play than the drive.
Its easy to fit just slots in at an angle then screwed down on your board just make sure your board supports M.2 on the PCI Express bus or it will be no faster than the SSD using Sata.
Final thought its worth the extra cash.
setup.exe /auto upgrade /pkey xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx
where setup.exe is located on your bootable USB drive, and xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx is your actual product key.The actual amount of usable space under Windows is 1907GiB. Very fast drive, which I hope will prove as reliable as other Samsung SSDs I've used.
in my system:
ASUS X99-A with Intel I7 5960X
ASUS GTX 970
System windows 10: Samsung 960 evo 250 Gb
Temp: ........... Samsung 850 PRO 250 Gb
Storage: ....... Seagate 4 Tb
Speed change from: read 520 mb/s to 3400 mb/s
write 505 mb/s to 1450 mb/s
with Crystal Disk Mark
the speed to load Windows increased just 2 second (I know, its a nonsense) but when you work with PREMIERE or AFTER EFFECTS you will understand why its so advantageous.
This performance also makes a significant difference to the PC in day to day use. Windows 10 opens programs almost instantaneously.
Expensive but recommended. It has a longer life than many other similar drives (e.g. Western Digital ) so worth the extra in my view.

Be prepared to work with tweezers to properly screw in the holder and the little screw into motherboard, very tiny elements.
