Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as intended. Using this SSD as my main harddrive for programs and OS. Works like a charm right out the box, low hassle install. Great Product. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from more room to dual-boot Windows I upgraded from the 950 Pro NVMe M.2 256GB to the 960 EVO NVMe M.2 500GB so I could have room to dual-boot Windows 7 and Windows 10. Not fully ready to make the switch to Windows 10. Even though I know I'm going to have to at some point. So I thought I dual-boot would be a good way to get acquainted with Windows 10. Decided to go with 960 EVO NVMe M.2 500GB because I've never had a problem with the Samsung product. Superior technology at slightly under the average price per gigabyte.I've read some bad reviews about this product but I'm hoping that there just user error. Only time will tell but for now I'm completely satisfied. Blazing speeds and superquick boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded Advertised Benchmarks! It is truly a nice surprise to have a product actually perform better than advertised. 3,257 MB sequential read right out of the box. I haven't even updated drivers or enabled rapid mode yet. Hopefully the total lifetime writes will live up to what is promised as well, but I couldn't be happier for now.While expensive, this drive is priced fairly for the performance boost it brings and worth every penny if R/W speed is what you need. I loaded a clean install of Windows 10 - Creator's Update (Build 15063.138) in under 5 minutes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Issue on Lenovo T470p I have this for almost nearly 3 months now. Blazing and unprecedented performance on the previous laptop that I'm using which is Lenovo T460s. Afterwards new laptop come (Lenovo T470p) which is 3 days ago and I decided to use the same NVme (Samsung evo 960 m.2 1tb) after clean installation of OS Windows 10 Pro and downloaded the recent driver from microsoft and lenovo website as well as samsung recent firwmware. After completely switch-off the device then I turn-on again I was surprise the same day that it stuck on Lenovo logo (Please see screenshot attached) and it didn't load the OS at all. When I forcefully rebooted it goes to the normal state then OS loaded properly. Issue is keeps on happening everynow and then, a bit alarming I believe.

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.
