User Reviews Top 10
Stupid fastAuthor Name: Master0382
I recently scraped my FX system, and built a Ryzen system. I opted for this drive after researching many NVME offerings. I am biased towards Samsung a bit, as I have used so many of their products, and they have been affordable, and reliable. The load times for games and applications is insane. I have used SSD's for several years, but I'm still blown away with how well this drive performs. I can't recommend this enough.

Fast Awesome Drive!Author Name: HughzUrDaddy
Intel's NVME drives pale in comparison to this guy. The drives are no longer bottle necking your system. Probably overkill for most people.

Lightning Fast SSDAuthor Name: GRFTY
This thing smokes every other SSD I have ever used. My motherboard takes 5x as long to post as this SSD takes to load Windows 10. I have never even seen the Windows loading screen. Windows is available almost instantly after the mobo posts.

Very Fast M.2 SSDAuthor Name: Aseb
My computer basically boots in less than one second now. This product is fast and I would highly recommend going forward. How could the PRO version be even faster? Amazing technology.

Works as intended.Author Name: Will2Linkz

more room to dual-boot WindowsAuthor Name: skotsbox
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.

Exceeded Advertised Benchmarks!Author Name: ScubaSky
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!

Amazing SSD DriveAuthor Name: Strife1013
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.
