Peculiar Object

 

$120.00 for 120GB of SSD memory, ok. Now this is not SATA I,II,III or mSATA it is PCIe Gen 2 using a M2 socket. So I'm continuing to work our how to get it to use x4 lanes and be the 10Gb/s it could be. I would estimate it works as fast as SATA III...

Getting bandwidth pipelines between CPU / RAM / Mass Memory to be extraordinary takes extraordinary knowledge of tech.

Super Fast

 

Super fast SSD! Stable and no problems whatsoever.

Didn't work as a boot drive for my system. My fault so I can't really ding this drive.

LUDICROUS SPEED

 

Quite a challenge to find the right bios and jumper settings to get the unit to work, but it will work (and work well) with ASRock Z97 OC Formula LGA motherboard.

From power button to Internet 4.6 seconds...no joke....buy this. If you install this, be warned, some PC mobo's will load Windows so quickly with this drive you will NOT have time to hit DEL or F8 to enter bios. Space saving and small - too many pros...

I bought this item for $249. Obviously, the demand has gone through the roof. Don't know about the value over $400, but at $250 it's simply amazing.

Worth every cent if you can get it working

 

This is not a negative review, I really do love it. This product was not designed to be particularly user friendly. It's not something I would recommend to the majority of consumers as it's definitely more for the advanced user, who knows what their...

This thing is the best product on the market, it's the fastest, made by one of the most reliable companies for SSD's, and when properly installed, will make your computer feel as responsive as a desk lamp.

Not simple to install software. After hours of scouring the web I finally found out, in order to install an OS you can't do it from a disc for reason's I don't care to find out. two methods that both SHOULD work are installing the OS to a separate...

Awesome system disk

 

Small, fast, and boots Windows 8.1 when installed in a Gigabyte GZ-Z97X-Gaming 3. It is super nice not having a single SATA cable plugged into my board. It saves a lot of space by not having any hard drives.

SAMSUNG MZHPU256HCGL-00000

 

Built a new system with an Asus X99 pro board and this as my os drive. Loaded windows 7 from an LG blueray drive without a hitch. Right now I'm just loading what's needed to run my computer and a few programs that I want to quick start. Plan to load...

This litter guy is really fast

 

I got no problem make it work on my ASRock X99X motherboard. I didn't have to update the BIOS before installing windows. and I'm running windows 7 professional. Somebody said It took 8 sec to load windows 8, Mine 15 - 20 sec to load windows 7....

* small * fast, * work out of the box on my ASRock X99X motherboard and Windows7. NO issues at all.

Had to have it

 

Can't wait for the next generation M.2

Fast and small. It hides behind my R9 280x video card I have the Asrock x99x Killer motherboard.

Price still too High.

FAST

 

this drive took me 18+ hours of researching to get win 7 x64 to load - finally did a "fred flintstone" approach - i wiped a samsung 840 evo and set it as "GPT" in disk management, then cloned my original OS drive to it, and cloned that to the xp941. It...

none - waiting for the sm951 NCMe version to release May 19th, and move this xp941 to the M.2 slot to use as a clone/backup drive.
