Rated 5 out of 5 by from V-NAND SSD 950 PRO M.2 Screaming fast. Boot windows 10 pro from it with Asus x-99 deluxe 2. Great warranty. So far no problems from it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product This is an amazing SSD, performance for value is worth every penny. I am amazed at how well windows runs on this SSD, no hiccups and its very fast. Worth every penny for sure. No issues yet and is very easy to install. The motherboard recognized it no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Install with no driver hassles Installed this Samsung 950 512GB memory card on a RamPage V Edition 10 mobo. Real simple. Keep your grounding wrist-strap handy, and use common-sense handling care when inserting. Really nice & compact!Using it for my boot drive with WIN10 OS. Self-installed, no driver headaches. This was on a new WIN10 install, and I made sure there were no other drives whatsoever in the system (at least until the initial 950 installation was complete). BIOS Boot assignment configurations are not always reliable, depending on how many times the system POST's.This card, in an M.2 slot, is THE best place, mainly because the back-end of any newer GPU these days, dropped in the X16/X8 slot, extends well over the M.2 bed. This precludes any K.2 connector in this space (why would you want to do this?).If you have PCIe slots available, it would be far better to add K.2 memory using a Funtin NVMe SSD adapter card (FF-8639), and (except for power) forget the cables! This is what I did, although the Intel 750's require grueling drive-software installation.Overall the 950 is sweet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Ever For The Price!!!! I am a Huge tech geek and now have a Samsung pro 950 in my 4k Gaming Laptop as well as in my gtx 1080 gaming desktop. these things are amazingly fast. if i could justify the price I would raid 0, but the 960's just came out a few days ago so when the 2TB drives come down a little i will definitely love to grab a few of those for upgrades. SAMSUNG rocks. They are simply the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAST! My old desktop I built lasted 10 years and is still running, but it is definitely showing signs of it age. Apps take a while before they open, shutdown and restarts take forever so I decided it was time to re-task it as a home server and to build a new system for everyday use. My new Debian Jessie system now boots in 5 seconds! Even LibreOffice opens in about a 1/3 of a second.Take the plunge you will not regret it!
