Your games will maybe load 1 second faster. OS maybe boots slightly faster, but who does that?
The only thing I can objectively tell is different is I can move and delete huge files instantly. Perhaps it is more effective for someone who is doing 4K video editing.
If you're a gamer or just average user, just buy a regular SSD. Trust me.
Edit: Included a benchmark. 2,759 MB/sec write, and 2,313 MB/sec read. If you remember 3.5" floppies, this is like reading 1915 diskettes every second.
Edit2: After realizing that I wasn't getting the rated speed (which no one will probably actually see), I started to look into it and I made sure that I had the latest BIOS update, the latest chipset and storage drivers, and the Samsung NVME driver. After doing all that, I re-ran the benchmark and now I'm over the 3000 MB/sec mark! It's fast out of the box but with proper setup it can be much faster!
well, the usual Samsung witchcraft ensued after a few months of use. Contrary to what the benchmark test still says this drive is now as slow and unresponsive as the Kingston drive that I have since thrown away. it's mojo and badassery dissappeared after an update installed. It's still a cool little drive but it looks like it's been throttled back possibly due to faster drives being in the works.
so far so good. I had a pre installed Kingston m.2 sata drive in my MSI gaming laptop and it did the job, just not very quickly. After cloning my system over to the 970 EVO I was eager to see the difference in speed. To my surprise the boot time didn't really change, it might be half a second faster, so little I began to wonder if the price was worth it. I decided to open Adobe Lightroom as that is what I primarily use this computer for. I had processed a batch of photos with the old drive and it had taken roughly 5 minutes to finish. I processed the same batch with the 970 EVO and it blew my mind, 45 seconds from import to batch adjustment and export. I am so happy with this drive, my photography work will happen so much quicker now.
Attaching the CrystalMark scores for both my old Kingston and the 970 EVO. I was hesitant to spend this much on a drive but now I can't wait to upgrade my desktop with one of these.
Unfortunately, a 1TB replacement SSD from Apple was $600 plus $100 labor, and OWC's after-market drives suffer terrible reviews about product quality and heat issues. Enter these two parts available on Amazon: the "Samsung 970 EVO 2TB - NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD (MZ-V7E2T0BW)" and the "JSER 12+16pin 2014 2015 Macbook to M.2 NGFF M-Key SSD Convert Card for A1493 A1502 A1465 A1466."
With these two parts, I was able to upgrade to a MUCH FASTER *2TB* SSD for about $800. That's DOUBLE the original storage space and over TRIPLE the speed of the factory Apple SSD for only about $200 more. I've been running this SSD for a few weeks now with no issues. Sleep mode works great, and everything seems to be perfect, just faster. The only thing I haven't been able to test yet is hibernate, because that only kicks in during Sleep mode when the battery gets exceedingly low, and that hasn't happened to my machine yet.
If your MacBook Pro SSD has failed and you're looking at options, consider the parts I mentioned, because they represent a much better value and performance capability than Apple's factory SSD. As long as your MacBook Pro was upgraded to a recent version of High Sierra (10.13.x) or higher, your MacBook Pro will have the firmware update that is needed for this after-market SSD combination work. Check out the attached Black Magic speed results for evidence of the performance you'll get with this combo! Very happy so far, and will post back if I find any issues as time goes on. I'm 3-4 weeks in and everything has been smooth!

1 - Double check that your Samsung Magician software is the 'latest' version. Magician will always say it is the latest, but this is not always true. My Magician was 5.0 and said it was the latest version. But, it would not recognize my new NVMe drive until I downloaded Magician 5.2 from the Samsung website.
2 - There is a separate driver you will want to get for this drive from the Samsung website. Normally you would assume that having Magician would be enough, but the driver is separate.
3 - Ensure that when you look at your drive description in Magician, it says 3 x 4 and not 3 x 2 in the description on the drive page. If you are only using 2 channels, then you may need to adjust your BIOS so that you are toggled to x4 as opposed to x2 for the M.2 port. For me, my ROG Asus Maximus Hero X was toggled to x2 for some reason, and I needed to adjust it to x4 in advanced settings. Very easy, but running at x2 instead of x4 will cut your drive speed in half, so you want to ensure you are at x4.
4 - Last item ... if your drive is installed and everything should be aok, but Magician tells you that your drive is not recognized, you'll need to initiate it in disk management. This did not happen to me with the 970, although I cloned to it this time which initialized it automatically. But when I installed my other 860 a few months ago, it would not recognize it until I did this and it took some poking around to figure it out.
Hope this helps anyone that needs it. It's a wonderful drive. Cheers.
Let me tell you that the performance has upped by at least 10 times the original state. The boot times are around 15 seconds and the apps open up as soon as you click on them (Note that I have installed win 10 on the SSD itself. To take advantage of full potential of this product, install the OS on the SSD and use the HDD as a secondary mass storage drive). Windows is simple so so much better on an SSD and that too this one. Speeds are simply astounding.
In short, the performance is screeching fast. Great product !!
- Está casi igual en precio que una 960 NVME.
- Compatible con LENOVO LEGION y720
- La diferencia a un HDD es enorme, mi computadora tardaba 40 segundos hasta 60; ahora solo 3 a 4 seg, puedo cambiar de sistema de forma muy rápida y abre los programas bastante rápido también.
- Es una excelente inversión si quieres sacarle provecho a una computadora gamer como la mía que tenía un HDD y eso atrofiaba su poder, 1060 GTX, I7 7700 2.8ghz, 20 gb ram ahora si vuela.
con este SSD NVMe, solo tarda 14 segundos en inicar completamente la PC!!!
es una maravilla.
PRO TIP: USA EL SOFTWARE DE DATA TRANSFER DE SAMSUNG, te quitas dolores de cabeza cuando clonas tu HDD o antiguo SSD ya que puedes borrar el disco viejo sin problemas solo ten en cuenta que todo funcione bien en el nuevo SSD NVMe y puedes borrar el antiguo disco duro con los siguientes comandos en CMD, disklist, select disck 1 o 2 depende de tu arrange de disco, despues select disk 1, disk list ahora debe de haber un (*) en el disco que vas a borrar despues de clonar, despues porcede si estas seguro que ya lo puedes borrar bien metes el comando delate y listo te sale que todo fue exitosos y le das exit.
espero que les sirva como a mi!
This review will solve most of your doubts (If not all) regarding SSD and how to install it and DIY in the home without anyone's help.
This is the best NVME SSD available in the market and if you have the money to spend on the SSD then go for it. It is the best.
Now talking about compatibility yes it is compatible with all laptops which are having M.2 NVME slot and having M keying. M keying means it will be having a single notch on the PCI-E slot as well as on the SSD.
For this review and youtube video, I am using the Asus FX553VD laptop which is beast and have the best configuration available in the market.
So talking about compatibility it is compatible with all modern laptop having M.2 PCI Express slot and the popular Laptop list is below.
Well if you want you can even clone your older windows onto this SSD without losing anything ( every program and setting will work same as it was on the older HDD ) using Samsung Data Migration software which is free and It will work flawlessly, although if possible go for a clean install as it will improve system performance.
You can still use your previous HDD without any doubt as a normal storage and this SSD is very well detected in bios so no issue on that.
Also talking about boot time it has reduced to one - third than my previous 7200 rpm hard disk which took around 16 seconds to boot.
Apart from that major changes, you will see when you open browsers like chrome and Mozilla which will open instantly and also if you are doing editing stuff then opening time of Programs like Premiere Pro, Lightroom, Photoshop, After effects take very less time and work very well.
The rendering time is really awesome earlier for a 5-minute full HD video was taking around 30 to 40 minutes which has been reduced to 5- 10 minutes which is a huge improvement and I really love that.
So if you really want blazing fast speed then this SSD is for you and is worth for every paise you spent.
Also, the benchmark test results can be found in photos.
