    Samsung 960 Evo reviews

    250GB 960 EVO NVMe M.2 Internal SSD is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 118.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic SSD with Astounding Read/Write Capabilities I use this for my OS and system applications, and I have never seen read write speeds at this level. It's astounding. I took one star off of design because while I have not had an issue with it, Thermal Throttling in high end desktops with heat is a very real risk with the M.2 drives. I really wish Samsung had provided some form of heat sink, or other cooling solution, luckily many of the new Motherboards coming out, are providing heat shield/sinks for M.2 drives. Oh i forgot to mention this thing is tiny. like smaller than laptop RAM tiny. If you are a performance junkie, or just need a new SSD. This is the way to go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 times faster than SATA 3 SSD, instant boot desktop :-) Replaced my desktop's Kingston 3k SATA 3 SSD with this since the motherboard had NVMe+boot support. This thing is like 5 times faster and boot up went from 5 secs to 1.5 secs on UEFI boot on windows 10. Make sure to install the samsung NVMe driver, that speeds up things in the random read/write department. I used a combination of diskpart.exe windows tool and EaseUs partition tool to copy over my current SATA SSD to this drive. Here is a link for diskpart specifics (skip over the MBR to GPT conversion and start step 7 onwards, skip over last command of step 13 and use EaseUS partition copy instead)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as intended and hits all advertised specifications Works as intended and hits all advertised specifications. What more could I ask for? Installed in a Gigabyte Z97 Gaming 5 M.2 (830MB/s Read/Wrtie on-board M.2 slot) Installed in Asus PCI 3.0 M.2 Card (3100MB/s Read/Wrtie)

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Check compatibility with motherboard first I got a shiny new Supermicro 5018D-FN4T to put this drive into, as a virtualization server. If it worked, it was going to run like a greased pig at the state fair. Unfortunately, the Supermicro BIOS didn't recognize it so I couldn't install onto it. And Centos 7.3 didn't recognize it either, despite being a Linux 3.10.0 kernel (and NVMe drivers being baked into Linux since 3.3). Oddly, when I booted Fedora 25 (Linux 4.8) it saw the drive, which I was able to partition, format, copy files to, etc. So I ended up having to exchange it for a slightly slower, slightly more expensive T*a product instead.

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perky but boot times still 15 sec I was able to get the new SamsungNVMe 2.0 Driver and the new Magician 5.0 software, but the new Data Migration software wasn't available yet on the Samsung Tools & Software page. I cloned my SATA III boot drive using the current 3.0 Data Migration Software, but I had a Windows 10 error when booting. I then tried cloning the Samsung 960 EVO using Acronis True Image 2017 and booting from a flash drive. This worked fine! I would call the experience Perky, but there isn't a great difference in perceptual speed. Applications do open faster but my boot times are the same at 15 seconds. I Like it!

    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!
