Moves data like a shovel moves coal

 

As others have stated, make sure to double-check with your motherboard manufacturer's specs re: M.2s that fit the board. I had only two Samsungs to choose from for my Gigabyte Z170XP. These specs can be hard to find so be diligent in your search.

Quick, quick, quick. I can't believe this. I went with this one because of some concerns about the stability of the PCI 3.0 version and I have no regrets. Coupled with an i7 6700k @ 4.6 GHz my load times and data transfer rates are lightning fast. I...

Instructions on installing were a bit "oblique", which is how it describes the way to insert the card. I read that as a vertical angle and they meant a horizontal angle. This caused me to remove the anchor screw, which, for me, was a pain to get back...

Samsung XP941

 

For the gamers out there, this drive will decrease your load time substantially. It will make file transfer great as well. Only problem is if you're moving anything from a SATA SSD to a PCI-E SSD, well unfortunately you will be capped to SATA's...

Great for a OS Boot Drive ; Great for a Storage Drive ; Equivalent to 2-3 SATA SSDs in RAID0 ; It is blazing fast and will leave you in awe ; Speechless

Heat. These things can get very hot if they are used to move large amounts of data over time. I purchased some high quality thermal pads and some heat sinks to take care of any heat issues as that will greatly improve its longevity as well ; Warranty....

Very fast performance. Boots on asrock z97.

 

Complete system spec: asrock z97 extreme6/ac, evga supernova p2 1000w power supply, 32gb g.skill 2400mhz DDR3 ram (4x8gb), evga 780ti, i7-4790k OC to 4.5ghz, corsair h110 cpu cooler, samsung sm951 512gb m.2 boot drive, samsung xp941 512gb m.2 app/swap...

Very fast drive. I bought this not knowing when to expect it's successor, the SM951. I have since purchased that as well and am running both the XP941 and SM951 in my asrock z97 extreme6/ac motherboard. The XP941 is very capable, fast, bootable on this...

none, get the SM951 if your system will support, it is about 30% faster

Better than most.

 

SABERTOOTH X99 5960X

1605 MB/s Read 1019 MB/s Write. Definitely performs better than any two SATA drives in RAID 0. No cables. Takes up almost no space

400+, not as fast as NVMe

Not as fast as I thought it would be

 

I have this installed in the ASRock Fatal1ty X99M Killer LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 motherboard with an Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-Core CPU.

Faster than my old 4 drive RAID-5 setup

Don't get me wrong, it's a lot faster than my old 4 drive RAID-5 setup, but it's not "BLAZING FAST", at least in my computer. Not worth the money in my opinion. I would have given it 4 eggs, but the price vs. performance isn't there. I could have...
