Very compact and fast as advertised and wasy to installAuthor Name: Snoopy70
This drive I installed so I could use as a boot up for Win 10 and it works just fine. Very fast-about 5 times faster than the SSD I was using to bootup. The price is a little high but you get what you pay for and so far, no problems with running hot.

Great product, exceeding expectations.Author Name: Doublea2002
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.

I Made A Video ReviewAuthor Name: BTCKYLE
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!

The one I received only reads/writes 2200/1800Author Name: SciFiHowy
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.

Super UnstableAuthor Name: dalo
I installed this unit on Z270X MOBO with i7-7700K cpu which is 2017 current and supposed to be M.2 friendly. First the drive wasn't recognised. When I finally got it working it was super unstable with multiple freeze on boot and BSOD. I have pulled the drive and reverted back to 850 EVO and my system has returned to stability. It's taken a month to get the "new" drive serviced and it still isn't back.
