TL;DR │ Most insane NVMe drive yet. Insanely fast, insanely expensive, for insane people.
- - - - -
I am one of those insane people. I have 512GB (2×256GB) 950 Pro in RAID 0 for my gaming build, a 512GB 950 Pro for my laptop, and now, a 512GB 960 Pro (for the same laptop). From my first tests (RAID mode), two 256GB 950 PRO in RAID 0 (512GB total) is on par with a single 512GB 960 Pro, with the RAID having minuscule edge on random writes. This test was done with IRST (Intel) drivers.
On my second tests, I used Samsung NVMe drivers, under AHCI mode in BIOS. It is evident how much faster the 960 PRO is compared to the 950 PRO.
I do use "regular" NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 drive from Intel (600p), and I use it only for a NAS build OS. For day to day, the difference is negligible, and I would still recommend getting those less expensive NVMe drives. (Just skip the SATA... and the hard drives.) These Samsung "PRO-series" drives are for people who just wants the best and who do not mind paying for them.
WHAT I LIKE │ + │
+ Looks good, not plain.
+ Sticker/heat spreader orientation not upside down anymore
+ Better thermals than the 950 Pro
+ Faster than a single 512GB 950 Pro
WHAT I DON'T LIKE │ × │
× Packaging can use better protection.
× Other computers will seem slow, that you'd get rage from using them.
× It is also worth noting that it took a long time to deliver because of product delay.
PACKAGE │ ✓ ✗ │
✓ SSD on insecure plastic cradle
✓ Printed materials

For tests, I am putting this on an Alienware 13 R3, together with a 950 Pro. My machine has an i7-6700HQ, 32GB of usable RAM, and a discrete GPU. See photos for results. Both 512GB drives are tested in exactly the same configuration (cloned).The 2×256GB 950 PRO in RAID 0 is in a different machine.
UPDATE: The first tests were done in RAID mode, using Intel drivers. I reformatted both drives, and reconfigured BIOS to use AHCI mode. This made it possible to use Samsung drivers. I uploaded another benchmark comparison (excluding the RAID 0 drive).

VERDICT: I highly recommend this product for people who's okay with paying for it.
★★★★☆ | 4 stars out of 5. Insane.

This review is for the Samsung 960 PRO - Series 512GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD.
I have a SATA 850 EVO (read write ~500mbs) in my other computer. Boot times are similar. The real power comes when reading or transferring very large files. With very large files or gaming, it's worth every penny. Is it needed for most? No, but neither is a lifted truck, a Harley Davison, a beautiful home, or a spouse who looks stunning but doesn't talk. Do we all want them, yes! Do we "need" them, nope. Apply the same rules here. One thing is certain. It's a lot less expensive than a divorce! Yes, a little tongue and cheek, but you get the idea 🤣
I couldn't verify it right away because I was waiting for my motherboard to arrive, but I was still very concerned about the authenticity of the product, so I had to ask someone to lend me a motherboard, and to my (no) surprise, the SSD was not what I ordered not what I paid for, and not what the box and the sticker on top said it was.
According to the system, it's a "LITEON CV3-8D 128-11 SATA 128GB", so it was not just ANOTHER brand, it also was SLOWER because it was SATA not an NVMe, and it also was of LESS CAPACITY 128GB!!!.
So I don't know what the hell is happening on Amazon, I solicited a refund, but I had no choice than order it again because apparently only "Amazon Export Sales LLC" is hogging these SSD and I really need it for the line of work I'm doing.
I'm willing to change the rating on this product, only if the new one I ordered is the real thing, not that rebrand thing again.
Running on my 2016 HP Omen laptop at approximately 3000 read / 2000 write.
Not entirely sure why its not at advertised 3600, but I imagine its not the drive, and likely some system limitation.
No complaints, games, apps, OS - everything loads much faster now.
Advice: Never get laptops with anything but minimum SSD/Ram configuration - the SSD and Ram hardware that manufacturers usually put into their retail products are the cheapest models you can find. Its all about profit. You're getting cheated. Get the lowest available config then replace it with quality hardware like this drive.
