Product Reviews
Samsung 960 EVO MZ-V6E250BW - solid state drive - 250 GB - PCI Express 3.0 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blazing Speeds An NVME SSD is very different from a normal SATA SSD. It's 3 times faster and with a very small footprint. I recommend you buy the retail version of the Samsung SSD so you will get the 3 year warranty and the Samsung Magician software. The OEM version doesn't have a software and the warranty is only one year. The software is important because it will help you upgrade the firmware.This is my second Samsung NVME SSD and I highly recommend them. The price difference from other brands is less than $10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic SSD with Astounding Read/Write Capabilities I use this for my OS and system applications, and I have never seen read write speeds at this level. It's astounding. I took one star off of design because while I have not had an issue with it, Thermal Throttling in high end desktops with heat is a very real risk with the M.2 drives. I really wish Samsung had provided some form of heat sink, or other cooling solution, luckily many of the new Motherboards coming out, are providing heat shield/sinks for M.2 drives. Oh i forgot to mention this thing is tiny. like smaller than laptop RAM tiny. If you are a performance junkie, or just need a new SSD. This is the way to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing SSD Drive I bought this for my new notebook that already came with a SSD drive. I wanted something faster and more space. This SSD drive is hands down super fast and I've enjoyed it. It's a little pricey. It's $80 or so more than a 500GB version of the Evo 840 but well worth it for the speed increase and something that is a few years newer. I would buy this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speed in a little package First and foremost, this drive is fast with near-advertised speeds (see story below for more details). The response time and consistency has been exceptional, and my cold boot time on Windows 10 after enabling several MSI boot optimizations is now 2 seconds flat. Still amazes me several weeks later.Truthfully, I went through many hoops to get this SSD working with my motherboard (MSI Z97-GD65). However, this was due to my motherboard not having an m.2 port (it has mSata which is significantly different) and was my fault for not verifying this before my purchase. MSI was very gracious however, as about a year or so prior they released an update to their BIOS which added support for m.2 drives - perfect! I ordered an m.2 -> PCI-E x4 adapter, updated the BIOS using a spare USB drive, and installed my new hardware. Initially, the drive was successfully detected by Windows 10 (I had to right-click on the start menu and then initialize the drive via Disk Management). My goal however was to migrate Windows over to this SSD to get off my 1TB HDD RAID setup. I went to a free faithful tool of mine - Clonezilla. After installing the latest stable to a USB stick and booting off the stick, I eventually reached an unrecognized error during the process. Disappointed but not discouraged, I read on a forum post that the dev builds of Clonezilla were on a newer version of Linux with better drive technology support. So I gave it a shot and they were right! Migration took about an hour for 500GBs of written data, and I've been a happy camper since. The m.2 adapter causes a slight loss in performance yielding 85% of advertised read (~2700MB/s), yet still 100% of advertised write (~1800MB/s).I bought this drive for the performance, endurance and future-proofing. I expect this SSD to remain my main drive after building a new desktop a few years down the road. The performance is insane, taking my rapid loads from a dedicated SATA3 SSD for games to an entirely new level. For anyone still reading, my recommendations are to ensure your computer is compatible with m.2 (at PCI-E x4 speeds), that you are okay with your main GPU lane dropping to PCI-E x8 (MAYBE dropped 1-2 fps for me with my GTX 1080 and dual monitors), and that there's plenty of ventilation around the SSD to ensure that top speeds are consistent during huge data transfers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Biggest failure in my life Failed after 2 weeks of installing and less that 10 times use. You might think I probably didn't have sensitive data on it since I only had it for a short time, however I had some of my 3D designs and projects worth more than 100 hours of work on it. Now I have to go through the return and replacement process for another 3 weeks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Check compatibility with motherboard first I got a shiny new Supermicro 5018D-FN4T to put this drive into, as a virtualization server.If it worked, it was going to run like a greased pig at the state fair.Unfortunately, the Supermicro BIOS didn't recognize it so I couldn't install onto it.And Centos 7.3 didn't recognize it either, despite being a Linux 3.10.0 kernel (and NVMe drivers being baked into Linux since 3.3).Oddly, when I booted Fedora 25 (Linux 4.8) it saw the drive, which I was able to partition, format, copy files to, etc.So I ended up having to exchange it for a slightly slower, slightly more expensive T*a product instead.
