So, when I got the 500GB Samsung EVO PLUS 970, I popped it in the same slot that the ADATA was just in and not only did it surpass the specs of the CrystalDisk Mark bench, but the real world file copies (using the same file as before), were steadily around 2000MB/s. Not as fast as the benchmark, but leaps and bounds better than the ADATA and the other PCIE NVME drives I've had the ability to test with. Also, those speeds stayed constant for the entire file copy, where most other drives fluctuate up and down. I know that even larger file copies will eventually slow down when the cache runs out, but that's the same for all PCIe NVME drives that are using TLC (or anything other than MLC flash). And, Samsung is upfront with not just the benchmark read/write performance of the drives when using TurboBoost with the cache, but also the performance speeds you can expect when the cache runs out. No other manufacturer is showing that and that shows Samsung's confidence int their drives.
This drive blew me away, so much, I just ordered another one. I honestly don't think other "similar" drives are even in the ballpark on performance (The WD N750 might be the closest, but it's still not on the level of this drive in REAL-WORLD performance for file copies). If you're considering saving a few bucks on a cheaper PCIe NVME drive, I'd highly suggest you do your own large file copies and see if your "cheaper" drive really handles how it says it will based off of the superficial benchmark tests. Otherwise, save yourself the disappointment and just get the Samsung EVO PLUS to begin with and you'll be happy that you did.
I used macrium reflect free version to clone my older 256GB ssd to this guy, enabled the UEFI bios to handle it and off I go.
Couple things to keep in mind with this drive or any NVME drive. Enable support in the BIOS. Without that, the drive will not be recognized. It's not DOA, you have to enable NVME in the UEFI(bios).
My board, z170 s didn't like any devices connected to SATA1 and SATA2 in order to work with this drive. The bios found it, but Windows 7 had a fit. It took me a bit to figure this out. Also, if you clone another OS drive to this one, pull the other drive and save any potential hassle.
I'm keeping my other drive for a bit just in case this thing fails because they model is new and ... well ya know..
I bought this before the price jumped up because once word gets out that this thing is as good as it is, the price is gonna skyrocket.
Note if using a PCIe adapter card:
Even if a motherboard has multiple PCIe slots, this does not mean they all support GEN3. If you are experiencing half speeds, try a different slot.
Top reviews from other countries
To give a quick overview of my current spec;
16GB ddr4 HyperX RAM
2x Samsung 850 Evo 2.5” SATA 500GB
MSI GTX1060 6GB
ASUS Prime z270-a
This is a great upgrade if you are happy with your spec with video editing & graphics performance. I am not a heavy gamer nor I edit videos (thus my storage) but with lots of file transfer, new NVMe storage solution was the next go-to upgrade. @ $0.74 per GB and with NVMe m.2 form factor being the next generation storage solution, the price will be going down and already has. I purchased the current two SATA 500GB for about $170 so this was a no brainer for me. With read and write speed being about 5x faster (your mileage may vary explained below) you will instantly see an improvement in your quality of life when spending time transferring files or opening an application are now painless.
This is a hard part for most people. If you currently have an m.2 ssd as a boot drive you already should know how to install/migrate the old boot drive to this one. Samsung Migration App is very straight forward and easy to use. But there are few hurdles. First initalize the drive first, I’m a total novice and didn’t realize I had to initialize the drive (SATA is easier as it has its own connection) as NVMe is read through PCIe slot so don’t fret if you don’t see the drive not being read on first boot.
Check your mobo if the support is there for newest gen m.2. I have z270 and boy was I glad I didn’t cheap out on mobo when I first bought it.
And finally check if you have the m.2 slot enabled to x4 speed in your BIOS. (Usually x2 or x4 as an option) and newest drivers installed both for Mobo and m.2.
Pretty simple, no BS packaging. I however personally don’t like excessive packaging but with electronics becoming smaller and more delicate I understand.. comes with manual and the m.2 stick. No screws, most mobo will include m.2 screws if they support it.
Very happy with the purchase, again it’s a no brainer upgrade if you are content with cpu/gpu performance at the moment and looking to make your pc have a bit more snap. Definitely consider purchasing if you are in the market, Samsung has always made a quality product and this one (to issues with fakes going around from microSDs to SSDs) was made in Korea and with benchmark tests, was a legit piece. If you are looking for a long term and massive storage solution I suggest you instead go for Barracudas 4TB-8TBs with your favourite RAID settings, much more effective and cost efficient
Attaching the performance testing on day 1 FYI.
