    I purchased this as it is good value on “Deal of the day” for a 1TB drive at £95. I wanted to see if could act as a boot drive on a Mac Pro 5,1 as the initial firmware on the 970 Evo Plus did not allow booting from it on a Mac Pro 5,1. It worked as a boot drive just fine with the firmware that came pre installed, read speeds are similar to the 970 Evo Plus at around 1600MB/s read/write (That’s the limit on these older Macs on a single PCIE adapter).

    A modern PC will see the full potential of this SSD up around 3500MB/s, but for a Mac Pro 5,1 I’m pleased with the performance and price, which is on par with the 970 Evo/Evo Plus, for less money per GB.

    Product it self is good the samsung clone software on the other hand is horrendous and spoiled the experience with the product. Tried every trick I could find online to get it to work and it refused to write to the Samsung drive. A little bit slower than the drive it replaced my corsair 510 but overall decent performance.

    I recently got myself a shiny new gaming laptop, but since it came with a paltry 512Gb (but admittedly lightning-fast) SSD and had an extra SSD slot, I decided to go ahead and give it a bit of an upgrade. I did look at other SSDs, but since these Samsung Evo ones are pretty much regarded as the best you can get, it was a bit of a no-brainer.

    This thing is easy to install – the most difficult bit was actually getting my laptop popped open – from there, it was a simple case of sliding it into an SSD slot and securing it with a screw. Once that was done and I’d managed to get everything screwed back together, my laptop detected it without any problems and it was a simple case of giving windows 10 a poke to let it know that a new drive had been installed.

    The drive itself is impressively quick and, well… There’s not much else to say!

    Bought this on offer for less than a standard 1tb SSD from Samsung, so it was a no brainer.

    Very easy to migrate my OS using Samsung magician.

    Runs very well and whilst I haven’t had to stress this at many points during my use, I’m surprised to see it run quite cool. Haven’t noticed any throttling during extensive tasks.

    This is currently in a small itx system paired to a mini-itx. Without a thermal strip I was hitting 64’c and using a thermal strip on both sides managed to cool this down to 52’c.

    Overall, for £90 and 1TB of storage, it was a complete bargain!

    Took about a minute to install then Samsung’s tool to clone your old drive works flawlessly and done it in under 10 minutes

    I upgrade my early 2015 MacBook air with 1TB Samsung 980 1 TB NVMe M.2 by using an adapter. It workes really good, no much delay to boot up, working well with windows too. But I am not getting the speed as I expected, it is a little bit faster than the original one but not near to the power it claims. It claims the read speed is up to 3500MB/s but in reality, it is less than 1000MB/s somehow the writing speed around 1000MB/s. I used different adapter but the same result. The good side is I upgrade my storage from 128GB to 1TB and a little more faster than the previous one. I’m working on it, if I get any update I’ll change my review.

    This nvme was an upgrade from a sata SSD used for my system drive. My sata drive was only small so this was mainly an upgrade for capacity rather than speed as my sata SSD wasn’t that slow. This drive does feel fast though. I haven’t had any problems with this drive up to now. I got it during a sale so is good value for money. This is dram less so if writing more than 160 gb at once the drive will slowdown its writing speed from 3000mmbs to around 500 mbs but the only time this felt like an issue was when I formatted the drive. Other than that this drive has plenty of speed and Samsung magician software is quite useful with it too.

    As I found myself glaring through endless pages of hard drives for my gaming PC, I realised it wasn’t going to be easy to decide. Sure, I knew that I wanted something fast to replace my aging SSD’s, but I never thought I would come across something so fast.
    I decided to have a look at the Black Friday sales and saw this gem going for £71.99. This price is phenomenal. I waited and once I got it, I cloned my C: drive to this new NVMe drive, removed the old drive and voila, once my computer started within less than 15 seconds it was straight into my desktop ready to go!
    I decided to test it out before moving large files and the speeds were out of this world. I knew once I filled the drive with games and files it would slow down a bit, but having filled it up to 83% I can safely say the speeds are still absolutely phenomenal. It really makes my bog standard Samsung SSD (SATA version) look extremely poor in comparison.
    I am so happy with this drive so far that I have decided to order…
