Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow - Speed+++++ and Easy to install I purchased this for my home lab and ESXi server. I have 1 particular VM that loads and runs very slowly due to disk bottle neck. No more! Installed it using an expansion board as my MB didn't have M.2 so using PCIe x4 slot. BIOS didn't see it but Windows 10 and more importantly VSphere 6.5 found it no problems. My VM now boots to login in 8-9 sec!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic device, needs drivers prior to install Like the other reviews, I'll verify this module is crazy fast. On install the bios detected it, windows 10 did not have the appropriate temporary drivers though, and kept blue-screening, even in safe mode, initially. After some persistence, Windows conceded and allowed me to log in with an unknown device. After downloading the drivers from samsung and rebooting, all was well. The samsung cloning tool worked great, though it did not clone the 2nd hidden recovery partition in "automatic" mode.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blazin' Fast Speeds This NVMe ssd is my first ssd purchase and it has been the best switch ever. Before I've had countless sata hdd drives and this ssd has been awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing performance for a good price! Before, my HDD didn't use to follow my rhythm too well. Now, I am the one who can't follow my SSD rhythm! It's incredible. Since the moment you press the "Power On" button, you blink and there it is, the desktop waiting for you to log-in. When you log-in, you have all your programs loaded, prepared to be used. It's almost 6 times faster than normal Sata SSD's, which is amazing. Another good thing, is that this SSD's are the best in power consumption. In a laptop, it improves your battery duration time, because of the low consumption. Also (as any other SSD) it let's you move your laptop without fear to damage your drive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It doesn't work! (yet) Installed it using an expansion board as my MB didn't have M.2 so using PCIe x1 slot. BIOS from my Dell Optiplex doesn't see it. What goes wrong? Samsung driver installed1

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've read this is a good product, but............. I've purchased TWO of these units for a new build for a computer that is using Windows 7. ( I refuse to let go with a perfectly fine and stable OS...) The problem that I have been having for the past week, is that I am unable to get the SSD drivers to be loaded onto the stick before I can do a clean Windows install. It would be super helpful if Samsung could include a self-executable to preload the drivers so the Windows install would go flawless. I have been trying multiple methods to get this installed, and am STILL stumped ! At this rate, Samsung will come out with a new version, and I will STILL have not gotten this drive installed !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Still trying to install it! Physical sector issue Hi, I bought the 970 EVO 512 GB to substitute my Sandisk 120 GB SSD PCIe that originally came with my ASUS ROG GL503 VM. As it has only one PCIe slot I have tried to clone the original Sandisk SSD and literally spent 2 days trying different ways. The main issue seemed to be the Type M slot that the 970 EVO uses which is fairly new and an external USB enclosure was not readily available. I managed to do a partially installation but many shortcuts seemed to be missing and Office was acting up. Eventually I found a Type M enclosure that actually said it was compatible with the 970 EVO so I ordered it, received it in the UK after a couple of weeks and it seems to be working fine... as a very expensive USB pen drive. The problem now is that the USB enclosure (branded "Rongdeson") seems to "fake" the physical sector to be 4Kbp physical sector, which seems to be wrong but I haven't managed to find the spec for this yet. The Sandisk appears to be 512 bp physical sector so no cloning app has allowed the cloning. I will persist but meanwhile can't give any stars or recommend the product yet! I would appreciate any help on this if possible. Best Marcelo
