SAMSUNG 980 M.2 2280 1TB PCI-Express 3.0 x4, NVMe 1.4 V-NAND MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V8V1T0B/AM

Pros: The Samsung Magician software came in handy during installation and set up Worth the investment, especially when upgrading from an HDD

Overall Review: I don't know very much about SSDs and computers but I Installed this SSD with a 32GB HyperX RAM on my Dell Inspiron 14 laptop and the upgrade has been worth EVERY cent. Although this drive supports NVMe technology, I can't take advantage of it because it isn't supported by my device (Definitely something I should have looked into). Wanting it primarily for faster boot times, it hasn't disappointed me - My computer now boots in about 5 - 7 seconds and that's a significant speed increase compared to having to wait 20+ seconds to boot on my HDD. I hear people talk about overclocking and I still don't know how much that comes to play with this drive but I am not running any heavy applications so it doesn't matter much to me. It works great. As I am pairing this with my HDD (my OS is on the SDD, HDD for backup storage), the only problems I encountered, naturally, was with migrating (Samsung Data Migration wasn't too helpful, had to use DiskGenius) and setting up the BIOS to a supported state as I wanted. Some google searches and it was up and running in a few hours.
