Product Reviews
Samsung 960 PRO MZ-V6P512BW - solid state drive - 512 GB - PCI Express 3.0 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Fast! Performed on par with expectations. Runnung in a Z170 machine on an ASUS Maximus VIII Formula. Above average read and write speeds. Don't hesitate to purchase. You wont be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, exceeding expectations. I got two of these and set them up in Raid-0 in a new build. I have to say it was easier than I expected and they worked flawlessly together. Have been using for about 6 months now and have been very happy. Love the M2 design both for low-profile and ridiculous levels of speed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blazing Fast NVME Drive I've installed Windows 10 Professional on this 960 Pro NVMe drive as a boot drive, and it is blazing fast. I have not encountered reports of throttling due to heat, in part because I am using this 1 TB drive as a boot drive and have offloaded the majority of file operations to secondary and tertiary drives. As far as installation and setup, this small stick couldn't be easier to slide into an M.2 slot and tighten down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Capacity SSD Meets Optimal Performance Pros:- Best write speed I have seen from a single SSD to date (over 2000MB/s)- Large 1 TB capacity- Extremely durable and reliable drive- Read speed on par with 950 Pro 256 GB (over 2000MB/s)Cons: - Read speed slightly slower than 960 Pro 512GB version

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The one I received only reads/writes 2200/1800 I have an MSI X99A Gaming 7 and my speeds for my 960 PRO 512GB (onboard M.2 slot) are 2200/1800 or lower according to Magician, which is very close to the same as my 950 PRO 512GB (PCIe Adapter).I have installed the drivers, disconnected all other drives and removed the M.2 PCI card for the 950, checked that AHCI and not RAID is selected in BIOS, installed and then removed Intel RST, even moved the video card to PCI slot 3, and played with BIOS and rebooted many, many times. The 960 PRO did run much slower (800MB/s) when I set it to PCH mode instead of Auto. Otherwise, the fastest read/write achieved in my system is 2400/1800.The 960 PRO is still about as fast as the 950 PRO and costs a little less. I don't know if the issue is with the motherboard or the 960 PRO. I would still recommend this drive to a friend because many others are seeing the advertised speeds - unfortunately, I am not.MOBO: MSI X99A Gaming 7CPU: Intel Core i7-6850K ProcessorRAM: CORSAIR DOMINATOR Platinum Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 DRAM 3000MHzGPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB SC GAMINGOS: Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64 BitBOOT: Samsung 960 PRO Series - 512GB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V6P512BW)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Made A Video Review Please see my video review where I benchmark the 960 pro to two 840 EVOS in RAID0, and I also threw in a HDD comparison as well. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from INCREDIBLE Extremely fast, though they haven't updated the magician to support it yet. i cant wait to see what i'm actually getting performance wise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 960 Pro 512 Pre-Ordered. Got mine 11-17. The package looks nice. Installed on Win 10 64 pro. Asus x99 Strix. Samsung magician 4.7 reads 3550mb , 2125mb. The back of the drive has a copper sticker. I was able to peel off the the sticker revealing the copper strip, not sure if it'll help cooling much. The other thing I did was peel off the top sticker and affix ramsinks to the controller and and the memory. I'd likely never hit a thermal wall but I used this setup on my 950 pro and liked it. This may void the warranty? Some may say this is expensive or the value isn't good. To me I am getting premium performance so I expect to pay premium price. Although this was about 20 dollars cheaper then the 950 pro when I bought thathis driveThe negatives of this, pre-order is my own fault. No NVME 2.0 as shown in desription. Also no new Samsung magician yet. No mounting screw, not a huge deal but those things are so small losing them is easy, I'd love to have an extra one. Also I pre-ordered before they mentioned watch_dogs 2. And as of yet I haven't gotten a code for the game, I would hope they will take care of customers in this situation but who knows. I also pre-orderd a 960Evo for my game storage. I fid that before the offer as well
