SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V5P512BW

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent product that delivers as advertised! 12/31/2015

This review is from: SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V5P512BW

Pros: Have ASRock Z97 Extreme6 motherboard with 2.50 bios, along with Win 10 Pro 64 bit - the 950 Pro M.2 installed easily enough and quite easily installed Win10 via UEFI usb key method. Samsung Magician ver 4.9 Benchmark results (advertised/results): Seq Read MB/s: 2400/2595, Seq. Write MB/s: 1500/1560, Rand Read IOPS: 300000/166236, and Rand Write IOPS: 110000/102098.

Cons: It would have been very useful if Samsung had compatibility test results with related specifics for all compatible motherboards so that any misgivings/questions could be resolved immediately, and reduce my need to search forums for information regarding the experiences of others.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to anyone with a compatible motherboard (that have an Ultra M.2 interface and an NVMe compatible bios).
FYI - On the ASRock Z97 Extreme6 as of bios 2.50 the 950 Pro M.2 is compatible, but there is an ASRock discrepancy (to be resolved in oncoming bios update per ASRock tech spt) in which the 950 pro M.2 is not displayed as present either of the M.2 ports yet is shown generically in the "system browser" interface of the bios. As a result of this, Win10 does not see this as an M.2/SSD.
Samsung Magician weirdly enough does see it as the Samsung SSD 950 Pro 512GB.

2 out of 5 eggs Poor designed attachment points for seat 12/13/2014

This review is from: BestChair OC-2307 High Back PU Leather Executive Computer Ergonomic Office Desk task Chair

Pros: Nice material, simply construction, few parts.

Cons: Poorly machined attachment points for seat back attachment to arm rests. I have 17 years assembly factory (auto) attaching various screw/bolts/nuts/etc in part assembly and have dealt with issues related to cross-threading/cross-thead avoidance. This chair has poorly engineered attachment points for the seat back.

Other Thoughts: Go elsewhere if you want a better design for assembly - stay with this product (company) if you enjoy wrestling with assembly

1 out of 5 eggs Problems with SSD detection/maintaining contact with SSD 05/03/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE G1 Gaming G1.Sniper Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Very good price vs. features match.

Cons: Unfortunately, even with F3 bios version installed this mobo is unable to maintain contact (detection) of SSD's. There will be an initial detection of the SSD, but within several bootups the mobo loses contact with the SSD. No matter which SATA connector is used and even changing cables out, this board constantly loses connection with SSD's. Considering that SSD's are normally used as your OS install drive - this basically makes this mobo unusable if you want to use an SSD for OS root drive purposes.
New Win 7 Pro w/SP1 install, I7-4770k, 4mb DDR3, SanDisk 120gb SSD "SDSSDH-120G0G25" @ SATA 3Gb/s, 2 other HDD's @ 6 Gb/s.

Other Thoughts: Would have been a nice simple upgrade from lga-1366 w/ I7-920 to z87/haswell.... but it did not work out that way. I have been a long time buyer/user of ASUS mobo's and decided to give this Gigabyte mobo a try due to a variety of positive "professional reviewer" reviews.... but as an experienced standard user/individual my experience with this board does not match that of the reviews. I am contemplating going through with the RMA process to attempt to switch over to the ASUS equivalent (only have 30 days to do so).
