Samsung 970 Evo + 500GB M.2 NVMe Drive

17 June 2019
Bought this as a boot drive for my new 9900K build.
Was a bit concerned at first about the speed as my last NVMe boot drive was a Samsung Pro 960 and I wanted to have similar performance.
I shouldn't have worried. This little guy is lightning fast and it seems by the time my finger has lifted off the power button my PC is already at the login screen.
Would recommend this to anyone looking for a relatively cheap NVMe boot drive for their next build.
With the 500gb model you also have enough room for your main software to take advantage of the extra speed.

Nice fast drive.

14 June 2019
Extremely fast! Bought this drive to put into an external enclosure. The first enclosure that I bought was for devices that use the B-Key interface and this drive uses the M-Key interface, so it didn't work. Be aware of this difference if you are wanting to put this into an external enclosure.

But this over an SSD!

1 August 2019
If you're looking at getting an SSD but have the option to install an M.2, get the M.2 every time! Waaay faster and it can actually multitask well, unlike an SSD which will stall if you try to do two separate heavy read/write loads at the same time due to SSDs using the SATA interface, where these use PCI-e lanes. This handles file transfers and heavy multi-tasking with ease, splitting bandwidth fairly evenly between tasks. It'll happily copy around 4GB in a couple of seconds, but anything over about 8GB will taper off over time, sometimes down to between 500-900MB/s. You won't notice an advantage with boot times over an SSD, but everything...

Very fast

17 June 2019
Much faster than my old SSD definitely a noticeable difference in the 3 weeks I've owned it so far. Although while faster than my old SSD the fastest I've seen in real-world performance is about 2.5GB read and 2GB write not that I'm worried as it is still very fast and still faster than the 960 evo in my PC at work

Samsung 970 Evo is pretty good

27 November 2019
It's pretty fast, was easy to install, and does its job well.
My wallet is fine after the purchase.
If you don't already have them, get m.2 screws, get m.2 screws, get m.2 screws, get m.2 screws, get m.2 screws, get m.2 screws, or google what they are and how to get them (if your motherboard didn't come with them), thank me later.

Essential purchase for older pc's

25 November 2019
My current PC is used for office work, internet, watching movies (via TV/HDMI cable); had it for 5 years and the only thing that was getting me down was the boot time :-( it was taking nearly 3-4 minutes to boot up to windows.

No longer a problem with an SD drive! Unfortunately, my motherboard did not have the correct port for the Samsung 970 Evo Plus.. also, it would only boot from a SATA port.

So, my advice, if getting an SD PCIA2 Card, is to check whether your motherboard can actually accept the card AND boot up from it.
If it doesn't, grab a Samsung SSD drive that connects via a SATA connection (and save yourself the return fees!)...

Fast

5 November 2019
Easy install, super fast, good price. Does get warm, sits at around 50 Celsius, but this possibly due to my build with no cooling to the M.2.

Well Worth It!

Great for adding that stupid fast games drive you always wanted. 10/10 If I had more PCI lanes I would buy this again!

Super fast

20 October 2019
Had this for about 1 week. My last PC only had SATA2 and mechanical drives. Made this the OS drive. Super fast. Does get warm according to the monitoring tool. Gets to about 51-52 degrees (it can withstand 70 degrees, so well within limits) - but doesn't have a heatsink on it. No complaints. Works fine.
Pros:
Fast, like really fast.
Small and easy to install - no external cables to attach.

Cons:
No heatsink, but don't think it matters.
"Limited" to PCIe3 (that's still very fast).
