If you're not in the know here's a NOTE:
Make sure your system is utilizing the new UEFI platform rather than the old BIOS platform to take full advantage of the latest tricknology and all of its advantages. This means your system drive (where you install Windows) will have a "GPT" Volume rather than a "MBR" Volume. You'll have to boot into your UEFI interface, and turn off "CSM" likely under BOOT Options before installing Windows or directly afterwards as well as when you update your UEFI/BIOS. It's good to double-check the CSM setting stays off whenever you add another storage drive as well.
If you type "Disk Management" in Windows start menu search box, double click to open screen, right click on your system drive, select "Properties", and choose "Volumes" tab, you'll see either "GPT" or 'MBR" listed under "Partition Style".
One last thing: Consider backing up your important stuff, and just fresh install your OP System making sure to use the UEFI/GPT platform; I've never had success converting an MBR System from the dark side over to the light side of the force unfortunately. But, I'm just a novice with little experience.
5 year warranty, and as fast as you need. Samsung is hard to beat.

Well, I'm truly blown away by the performance of this SSD. Samsung is definitely on the cutting edge with SSD. This thing smokes. I'm not a video/photo pro myself but do handle large media files for the company's marketing work which involves editing and shuttling of studio photos of products and demo videos. I also oversee operations so I don't want such work to slow me down in anyway.
I can happily say that the TEKQ Rapide Thunderbolt 3 with this Samsung 970 PRO SSD is, by far, the best external SSD I've ever had the pleasure of using. I suppose it'll only get faster and better in the future but, for what I do, this is about as good as it gets. It feels and works as fast as my iMac 27" 5K and MBP's internal SSDs. An HD movie file transfers in a split second.
I'm not a geek so I don't care to measure the speed using an app like Blackmagic. I can easily sense it while doing real life work and it makes me more productive. I have the HP P800 as well in the work office and it's great but the TEKQ with this Samsung SSD is a step above, even if we're talking a fragment of a second. Awesome stuff. I don't see myself outgrowing this SSD for a long time to come.

Después de haberlo instalado en la motherboard instalé y moví algunos juegos pesados GTA V, Overwatch, ARK y Forza H3, quede sonriente de lado a lado al ver que los juegos que antes tardaban mucho en mi raid 0 ahora era cuestion de pocos segundos que estuvieran listos para jugar!, es Fabuloso éste M.2 970 Pro 512GB de Samsung. Sin duda no hay error para aquellos que también se dedican a la edición de video sobre todo por que tiene está caracteristica 2 bit MLC que le otorga copiar grandes archivos sostenidamente sin sufrir bajas en la velocidad de transferencia por el hecho de que se le acabe el cache eso es algo que solo éste tiene y todo el resto de los M.2 carecen.
Es caro sí pero lo bueno nunca es barato así que éste M.2 vale cada centavo en desempeño. Es un producto en mi opinión para aquellos que somos entusiastas del hardware que no nos duele dejar la billetera con menos billetes por tener lo mejor de lo mejor. Subiría una foto pero quedó debajo de una de mis tarjetas de video.

Under Full Load: 39⁰C
The "JEYI M.2 NVMe" heatsink came with no instructions but was really easy for me to attach to the drive.
If you can't install this without instruction just pay a PC nerd to install it for you - a heatsink is criticall for any M.2 Drive performance - and its worth it.
The switch from the built in Seagate brand hard drive to this Samsung 970 Pro M.2 was easy as all it required was a couple of screws and a handy piece of Samsung software. While I did have an issue with the screw ASUS used to hold the M.2 in place being loctite'd in place once I finally removed the screw (Which had now become striped and unusable), found a replacement screw in my cabinet and popped it into place the rest was smooth like butter.
Samsung offers data migration software on their website that seamlessly cloned my existing hard drive to the M.2 (This software only works with Samsung drives) and took less than an hour to clone over 300 gigs. Once the drive was cloned I had to go into disk management and enable the drive because it was now running the same ID as the Seagate drive and only one can be activated under that ID at a time, rebooted the laptop and pressed F2 to get into the BIOS, continued to the advanced settings and selected the Boot Sequence and selected the Samsung drive as the primary and finally selected Save & Exit. The initial boot from the M.2 took longer than any subsequent boots as is expected when first being initialized but now my boot time has decreased from between 2-5 minutes to on average about 27 seconds. It is now quicker to come from a full power down into Windows then it was to wake a powered on Windows from sleep mode before which means I save not only on energy from not having to leave my laptop running but on wear and tear on the devices from having it running 24/7.
My system benchmark nearly doubled when tested with the PerformanceTest software and raised my score from below average (2252 compared to the average of 2573) to being in the 86th percentile (Score of 4506) with no other system tweaking.
This drive is well worth the investment and will save you both time and money.
