    Wings PX1 PCIe x4 M.2 Adapter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality product You get what you pay for. This product was well packaged and included high quality hardware. It works well with the Samsung 950 PRO NVMe drive. I get over 2GB/s sequential read now... The only thing I didn't like was the white LEDs around the outside of the card, but it was easy enough to remove the zero ohm resistor on the board. It would have been better to have a jumper for this since many people don't have a soldering iron (or feel comfortable voiding the warranty on a brand-new product).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic PCIe Adapter Upon unpacking you can tell right away this is a beautiful work of engineering. The machining and electronics assembly are state of the art. One of the best features of it is the heat sink and thermal pads. I bolted an SM951 to it. Previous to other manufacturers M.2 adapter boards this one kept the 951 from overheating and thus let it run at peak performance. It does take a bit of time to install as you have to remove the cover screws to place the M.2 card into its slot. Could be handy to have small fingers to get the nuts on. But well worth it for the heat sink. Another great feature is it passes Trim! Mounted in the number 3 slot of my Mac Pro 2010 all I had to do was enable Trim Force. The back of the PCIe cards has some bright LED's that shine through. I guess they just made it this way for the cool factor. Comes with a 10 year warranty so obviously the company feels good about it lasting!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality adapter! This is a very simple adapter as it is only routing PCIe lanes from the motherboard to the M.2 socket. But the mechanics of this adapter are well done. The heat-sink is precision machined and all necessary hardware is included. The mount bracket is perforated to help airflow. The white LEDs around the perimeter give the card a great look inside the chassis. Wish all electronics were made this well. Would recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps 950 pro cool It helps greatly in keeping the heat down on the 950 pro. But still after about 10 seconds of straight use. File transfers to/from can still throttle the drive. Brings speed from 2gb/s read down to 40-60mb/s. No fault of the angel bird product. Just 950pro is a beast and gets really hot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well designed, but pricey This PCIe x 4 adapter can accommodate a single M.2 form factor NVME drive. Although no instructions are provided in the box, assembly is easy and straight forward. When installed, LED lights are activated along the perimeter of the card -- otherwise this adapter functions much the same as lower priced ones. In most computer boxes, the LEDs would not be as much of a distraction as some reviewers have noted. What makes this adapter special, however, is the addition of a high quality heat sink that get screwed on so that it covers the entire surface of the card. The quality and machining of parts are excellent. Two pieces of thermal tape are provided to ensure effective heat transfer from the surface of the drive to the heatsink. One rating star was subtracted only because of its premium price. That said, I do not regret buying it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy and fast in mac Pro Purchased this and an M.2 card. The M2 card was delayed in shipping from another vendor, wish I had found it on B&H's site. Overall I am very happy with this card. Boot times are screaming on the Mac Pro, faster than the SATA SSD I have installed. Also I work in iMovie a bit and load times for my movie is so much faster. the Mac pro is fast, this card just makes a it quicker.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for my new boot drive I'm using this to run a Samsung SM951 256GB (ACHI) as my new boot drive. Works great! I'm running El Capitan on it. The progress bar on the gray boot screen with the Apple logo doesn't seem to finish a whole lot faster than when I was booting from an external platter drive, but overall it does get to the desktop quicker and of course apps launch and respond much more quickly.
