    Samsung 970 EVO reviews

    250GB 970 EVO NVMe M.2 Internal SSD is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've read this is a good product, but............. I've purchased TWO of these units for a new build for a computer that is using Windows 7. ( I refuse to let go with a perfectly fine and stable OS...) The problem that I have been having for the past week, is that I am unable to get the SSD drivers to be loaded onto the stick before I can do a clean Windows install. It would be super helpful if Samsung could include a self-executable to preload the drivers so the Windows install would go flawless. I have been trying multiple methods to get this installed, and am STILL stumped ! At this rate, Samsung will come out with a new version, and I will STILL have not gotten this drive installed !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic device, needs drivers prior to install Like the other reviews, I'll verify this module is crazy fast. On install the bios detected it, windows 10 did not have the appropriate temporary drivers though, and kept blue-screening, even in safe mode, initially. After some persistence, Windows conceded and allowed me to log in with an unknown device. After downloading the drivers from samsung and rebooting, all was well. The samsung cloning tool worked great, though it did not clone the 2nd hidden recovery partition in "automatic" mode.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing performance for a good price! Before, my HDD didn't use to follow my rhythm too well. Now, I am the one who can't follow my SSD rhythm! It's incredible. Since the moment you press the "Power On" button, you blink and there it is, the desktop waiting for you to log-in. When you log-in, you have all your programs loaded, prepared to be used. It's almost 6 times faster than normal Sata SSD's, which is amazing. Another good thing, is that this SSD's are the best in power consumption. In a laptop, it improves your battery duration time, because of the low consumption. Also (as any other SSD) it let's you move your laptop without fear to damage your drive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow - Speed+++++ and Easy to install I purchased this for my home lab and ESXi server. I have 1 particular VM that loads and runs very slowly due to disk bottle neck. No more! Installed it using an expansion board as my MB didn't have M.2 so using PCIe x4 slot. BIOS didn't see it but Windows 10 and more importantly VSphere 6.5 found it no problems. My VM now boots to login in 8-9 sec!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very pleased After all the on-line concern about getting an NVMe M.2 drive functioning under Win7, I was very pleased to discover that Samsung's drivers made it so easy, either by cloning an existing drive, or via a fresh Win7 installation.� Both worked without a problem.� Speed is impressive.� I get (from CDM v3) ~2500MB/s read and ~1500MB/s write.� So much faster than the ~500MB/s possible via SATA3.� Programs load semi-instantly, and the ~65MB image files that I work with so often are also nearly instant load.� I'm happy with the improvement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blazin' Fast Speeds This NVMe ssd is my first ssd purchase and it has been the best switch ever. Before I've had countless sata hdd drives and this ssd has been awesome.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly Fast In my Alienware R7, I replaced the 32Gb Optane (and also un-configured the RAID that used the Optane chip and the 1TB disc together) with the Samsung 250GB 970 EVO as my system drive. Everything loads super fast, including a boot time of 10-20 seconds. Backstory: While playing Fallout 4 my R7 had a visual glitch and the game quit to the desktop, which had no background picture. I rebooted and the system went into a boot loop, so no matter what I did it would boot back and say there was a problem. After a week long hair pulling head banging troubleshooting I finally gave up on recovery and just wanted to reinstall the OS. Thus began the second week of troubleshooting, and discovering just what Optane is. In the end it seems that an OS and BIOS update might have messed up the Optane chip or the M.2 driver it uses, but the net result was me bagging the RAID configuration for one that is more understandable to me, and boosting the size of the faster M.2 (PCI) protocol SSD. After a little testing with a spare spinning SATA drive I had (which took about 4 hours to load the OS (Windows 10) from the USB stick, I was able to to load the OS onto the 970 EVO ... in less than 15 minutes. So far it has been several weeks and everything loads blindingly fast. Now all I need is a Gigabit Ethernet connection directly to the internet and I could take over the WORLD!! Ok, maybe not, but it would asure make downloading game stuff as fast as my SSD.
