5 out of 5 eggsVery fast performance. Boots on asrock z97.

Pros: Very fast drive. I bought this not knowing when to expect it's successor, the SM951. I have since purchased that as well and am running both the XP941 and SM951 in my asrock z97 extreme6/ac motherboard. The XP941 is very capable, fast, bootable on this motherboard. I recommend moving to the SM951 if your system will support it. Asrock supported it after a bios update to v1.60. I got about 1100MB/s read/write sequential on this drive and about 1700MB/s on the SM951 on same system (same slot apples/apples). Either drive will destroy anything you can plug into a SATA 6gbps interface due to bus limitations. I also have a Samsung evo850 on this system for media storage and it is about 60% the speed of the XP941 and about 35% as fast as the SM951.

Cons: none, get the SM951 if your system will support, it is about 30% faster.

Other Thoughts: Complete system spec: asrock z97 extreme6/ac, evga supernova p2 1000w power supply, 32gb g.skill 2400mhz DDR3 ram (4x8gb), evga 780ti, i7-4790k OC to 4.5ghz, corsair h110 cpu cooler, samsung sm951 512gb m.2 boot drive, samsung xp941 512gb m.2 app/swap drive, samsung evo 850 1tb sata 6gpbs media drive, corsair carbide air 540 case.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than most.

Pros: 1605 MB/s Read 1019 MB/s Write. Definitely performs better than any two SATA drives in RAID 0. No cables. Takes up almost no space.

Cons: $400+, not as fast as NVMe

Other Thoughts: SABERTOOTH X99
5960X

3 out of 5 eggsNot as fast as I thought it would be

Pros: Faster than my old 4 drive RAID-5 setup.

Cons: Don't get me wrong, it's a lot faster than my old 4 drive RAID-5 setup, but it's not "BLAZING FAST", at least in my computer. Not worth the money in my opinion. I would have given it 4 eggs, but the price vs. performance isn't there. I could have installed 2 - 512 GB Samsung SSD's in RAID-0 and it would have been a LOT faster than this thing.

Other Thoughts: I have this installed in the ASRock Fatal1ty X99M Killer LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 motherboard with an Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-Core CPU.

3 out of 5 eggsFast but I would wait for next Gen

Pros: This is a fast drive.

Works with: 1 x ASUS RAMPAGE V EXTREME LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Cons: 2 fast SSD in RAID 0 will outperfom this drive. I have 2 x SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE1T0BW 2.5" 1TB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) in RAID 0 and it blows this away.

Cost is high considering 2 SDD in RAID zero will outperform.

Requires USB Stick install using UFE BIOS.

Other Thoughts: Wait till Gen 4 then these should rock.

Took one Star off because it did not outperform my RAID 0 Took 1 star for price.

5 out of 5 eggsBlazing fast!

Pros: FAST FAST FAST

No cables or messing around for installation

Installed as Windows 7 boot drive on ASRock X99 Extreme6 motherboard without having to jump through hoops.

Cons: Costs a lot. OEM drive, as in meant for OEMs so no support for mere humans unless you are a Samsung OEM.

Other Thoughts: Need to choose your motherboard and processor carefully if you don't want to cripple your PCI-e performance for other devices. X99 is a better choice than Z97 if you can afford it. Which, if you are spending $500 on a 512GB SSD you must not be building a low-end computer.

1 out of 5 eggs1 Year Warranty

Pros: Faster that a speeding Bullet.

Cons: 1 Year warranty is sad.
Your better off just running a couple SSD Pro in Raid 0 and getting the same transfer speed and have a 10 year warranty

Other Thoughts: Samsung must not have much faith to have such a poor warranty.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not order from Newegg

Pros: Heard it was fast

Cons: Ordered new parts for a build, everything came in but this.... 3 days later.... all newegg can tell me is they dont sell it directly and the order was sent out...

Contacted their 24hr help chat... nothing but the run around from Jack W. He couldnt even tell me where the item was being shipped from. All he could do is "request" the 3rd party expedite the shipment and $10 gift card. LOL

Other Thoughts: Not even the cheapest place to get parts online.

5 out of 5 eggsUnbelievable

Pros: -Low profile
-Easy to install
-Large Capacity
-No cables of any kind required
-Bootable
-No software necessary
-INSANELY fast.

Cons: The high cost can be hard to swallow, but good GRIEF. Its worth it.

Other Thoughts: I'm averaging 1200mbs read and 1000mbs write speeds all day. Loading screens are gone for any and all programs. (for the most part. Sometimes loading screens have more to do with code than computer speed.) This is the most exciting purchase I've made for computers in a long time. I highly recommend this drive above any other SSD if you can stomach the price :)

4 out of 5 eggssuper fast, tricky setup

Pros: super fast
low profile
did i mention super fast

Cons: tricky setup

Other Thoughts: it's basically what you hope it would be - a super fast super compact drive. However, It can be tricky to setup, especially if you are installing it as your boot drive in windows. There are some good articles you can google, basically you have to boot your windows installer into UEFI mode (press f8 on start for boot options) and it will do the trick.

4 out of 5 eggsOEM not Consumer SSD

Pros: Very fast drive with a very nice low profile design.

Cons: Went to warranty my drive and found out from samsung that the XP941 is only sold as an OEM drive and about after 3 weeks of working with Newegg they also verified that they would have to be the ones to replace the drive since Samsung wouldn't cover it.

On a side note another con would be that it should have heatsinks since it does get very hot when stressed, but doesn't seem to degrade performance.

Other Thoughts: I gave this a 4 star review since the product was great in all respects, but the drive is being sold as a consumer based ssd on Newegg when in fact it is an OEM ssd and requires a lot of work to get it warrantied if it were to die.
