    I had built a gaming PC using this Samsung 960 EVO M.2 NVME SSD on my PC.

    I have uploaded a video when I built my PC.

    Happy with it so far. Good review points, thank you for sharing.

    I have a question, how does this stack up to something like the Samsung 860 evo sata m.2? I realize it is not Nvme so it's not as fast. I just want to know how it stacks up to traditional modern SSD's. I bought one yesterday for video game storage.

    I just ordered a 960 pro, the 512GB model, planning to use it as a boot drive for Windows 10. I hope for sub 10 second boot times.

    just to give people time differences . . .
    It takes me around 8 minutes from hard reset to go on Overwatch title screen where you can select play 😀 -50sr
    for SSD the time would have been under 1 minute easy ^_^
    now last windows update made it so that overwatch opens in windowed and then won't go full screen 🙁 but that is another thing

    The problem is that you don‘t only need to „dig a little deeper“, to get the 960 pro version, but you pay more than DOUBLE the price. One of our big online retailers just offered the Samsung 950 Evo 500 GB SATA for only 110.- Euro, while the Samsung 512 Pro NVMe still costs around 265.-Euro.

    And from the manufacturer‘s point of view there is hardly any difference between SATA and NVMe, that would justify the huge price difference. It‘s just all about making money. Look at RAM and GPU prices, people are still paying whatever they‘re asking for.

    I got the 960 evo (256gb) which I use as the boot drive. Being a gamer, I agree the difference isn't mind blowing as compared to a good SSD, but I chose the NVMe because I just like the look of it, plus I was able to use my old SSD in my brother's PC which was using a WD mechanical drive as the primary drive…..lil bro gets the 'hand me down' PC parts…;)

    Nice Video. I would like to a see a Comparison of 2x nvme 1 tb 960 evos in raid 0 vs 1 nvme 2 tb 960 pro.

    You have overlooked another difference. The read speed stays constant, even if you read out the whole drive in one go. But this isn’t the case with write speeds, no matter, what the spec sheet says. After writing a certain amount of data to the drive, which is depending on the drive size (4GB on the 250GB model, 6GB on the 1TB model) the write speed drops down severely, to around SATA level performance. The actual drive doesn’t perform much better than that in write speeds. It’s the TurboWrite Cache you need to look at, if you want the whole story, though admittedly it’s not that probable for a gamer to ever fill up that write cache fast enough to throttle the writing performance.

    Idk half the loading time for games makes it slightly more compelling than a boot drive really

    Photoshop or Capture One as Editing time on RAW images…. Nikon D850 images in RAW are huge on a 46MP camera so I can see this is helpful on editing …. I was reading if your editing 4K video you should get the Pro

    In a few hours I'm heading to my local computer store to pick up a 960 EVO – 500GB.

    I would love to see a video on how to make the switch over from HDD to the 960 EVO in Windows 10 Home 64.

    Anything I should be aware of to make this painless?
