Frekin' ridiculously Fast 3/21/2019 5:27:37 AM

Pros: Purchased when they first came out. Bench Marked in the top 99.9% and was 539% faster than the top 99.9% SSD/NVME drives previously bench marked. Loads DOOM levels significantly faster (less than 10 seconds) than any other drive I have tested to include Samsung "RED" Pro SSD's. Yes its expensive, so is a Lamborghini. You gotta pay to go Fast. This is not for the bargain bin guys or the AMD crowd. This drive is TOP SHELF, not Performance on a budget. System boots from power on to log-in in 8 seconds with bios post off. Installed with ease into my AzRock Z270 Extreme 4 Mobo, Intel Core i7-7700 KL processor, Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080Ti, 32GB GSKILL Trident Z DDR4 3466 Memory. CPU is Overclocked to 5GHz using NZXT Kracken X62 mounted into a Thermaltake CORE P3 Case. Powered using an EVGA SuperNOVA 1200 Watt P2 Power Supply, Noctua Cooling Fans. HAS BEEN RUNNING GREAT for nearly a year; installed November 12, 2017, today is November 6, 2018. Updated 3-21-2019 The strength of this drive is speed, caching and longevity. No one ever tests this drives cache performance. It's my boot drive. I have DOOM 2016 loaded on it. I go into Single player and load all the levels, once cached the levels load in less than about 7 seconds! I just bought another one on-sale!

OS: Windows 10 Professional [10.0 Build 17134] (x64)

Cons: I couldn't afford two at the time and I couldn't give it a 10 EGGS rating now!

Overall Review: This drive will not improve the speed of your bargain bin over-hyped/overclocked "Insert Bargain Processor, Mother Board, memory Combo Names here". This is an accouterment to a high performance CPU/Mother Board/Memory combination. If you built a "high performance" PC using Volkswagen level cheap parts don't expect this Smoking Fast corvette drive to bring it all together. You'll be disappointed!

Ordered "NEW" product; Received "Open Box" product 4/16/2018 12:52:47 PM

Pros: Gets great reviews

Cons: If I'm paying for "new" I want new! The box had been previously opened when I received it as both seals were slit.

Overall Review: - Haven't plugged it in to try it yet. Will post review after it is in and--hopefully--working.

Only the best 3/1/2018 8:57:09 AM

Pros: -fastest ssd available
-consistently fast
-durability, feels solid
-you get what you pay for

Cons: -sure is pricey

Overall Review: I did see a 1 egg review, im interested to know what platform they were trying to use it on. Don't expect this to work on older systems. Your system must support NVMe and have an x4 link. If you have too many other PCIe devices, or the PCIe link is going through the PCH, you will get reduced performance.

Great 2/21/2018 1:33:03 PM

Pros: Very fast R/W speed, particularly on 4K random.
Amazing durability compared with competitors (8.76PB for 480GB version, while 960 pro 512GB only has 400TB)

Cons: Maybe price (more than double per GB as others), but if budget is not problem you won't regret to get this.

Overall Review: Someone complained that the speed did not meet the specs, please make sure that you put it on the right pcie lane, enable x4 speed in BIOS and install the nvme driver from Intel website. Some motherboards may have different pcie lanes layout, check the board manual for details.

Great performance, Perfect for large games 1/12/2018 3:35:51 PM

Pros: Works really well for games with high level of detail and need to load a lot of resources quickly. If you do a lot of modding on games like Fallout 4 this definitely helps with load times. Star Citizen loads much faster as well when compared to a sata based ssd.

Cons: The price can definitely be seen as a con but if you're even considering buying this than the price is probably secondary.

Overall Review: Disclaimer - What made this a done deal was the included ship for Star Citizen. I was going to buy an ssd anyway albeit one that cost significantly less but the cost of the ship helped "justify" the cost (aka I used it as an excuse for why I needed this particular ssd). That being said I do like the performance of the drive and for managing my mods it does the job wonderfully. Is it worth getting over a Samsung Pro m.2 drive? Unless you're a hardcore Star Citizen fan and/or you want all the extra performance you can get out of your games I would hold off until these types of drives come down in price.

The best there is! 1/5/2018 2:23:18 PM

Pros: - Extremely fast!
- Long TBW life span.
- Installation and Drivers were easy to set up.

Cons: - Price, but this is marketed towards enthusiast after all.

Overall Review: - Comes with a nice bonus of a Digital Code for Star Citizen, and it also gives you a nice ship to start you off with.

An absolute beast! 1/5/2018 10:21:16 AM

Pros: I bought this to replace my existing Intel 600P 512GB NVMe SSD as my boot drive and it is noticeably faster.

- Installing the drive was simple and it didn't require any driver updates to use this as a boot drive.
- Shaved 8 seconds off my boot up times from the previous SSD I was using.
- Transferred over 200GB of games from my older SSD in under 2 minutes, primarily limited by my previous drive read speeds.
- The Star Citizen promotional ship is a huge bonus! I've backed the game since 2015 and really enjoy flying my Sabre Raven around the 'verse!

Cons: - Pricing is on par with a high end graphics cards, making it difficult to justify buying one if you are on a limited budget.
- This drive seems to be controller-limited, since the 280GB and 480GB performance figures are identical. I don't expect this to change through any software/driver updates either.

Overall Review: When installing your OS, make sure that all other drives are disconnected from your motherboard because windows has a tendency to "find" space on other drives to use during install.

Noticeable performance improvements, even for the average home user, but at a heavy cost premium... 12/22/2017 6:17:13 AM

Pros: - The speed boost, obviously. I must emphasize that unlike going from a SATA to NVME SSD, where you probably need to be running a server or datacentre before you can actually benefit from NVME's superior speed, the improvements via going from NVME --> 900p are noticeable for even basic/average users. This is speaking from my experience as a (for a lack of a better word) 'mid-tier' multifunction user (browsing, regular gaming, occasional streaming and hobby-level content creation ~ Photoshop, AutoCAD & ZBrush). While the improvement isn't as large as going from HDD --> SSD, you WILL notice a snappier OS, faster program/game load times and much faster boot times (at least from Bios to the Windows login page), as compared to a NVME SSD. With less heat issues too.

- The bundled Star Citizen in-game item. I see this as a plus point either way. If you play the game, great, the price also covers the cost of this in-game item, which I SERIOUSLY doubt came free. If you don't (like me), you could sell the code online to offset your initial investment. As of writing, I'm getting offers for this item when listed at USD$100.

- Temperature. Not sure if its the nature of Optane or the built-in heatsink, but at idle, my 900p's temperature was in the mid 30 degrees. Very reasonable IMO.

Cons: Just one for now - The price is very steep and hard to justify *if you're just an average home PC user/non-competitive gamer/casual content creator*. You're probably better off spending the money on a more powerful GPU, an i9 processor or MULTIPLE SATA/m.2 SSDs. But if cash isn't an issue to you or you have a mid-life crisis to solve, I'd say buy this thing!

Overall Review: All early adopters of new technology face additional risks. But so far, it doesn't seem likely that the Optane SSDs will go the way of Windows 8, Google Glass or Iomega Zipdisks. Hopefully Optane gets mainstreamed within the next 5 years.

For those curious, I am running the 900P on an AMD (Threadripper) system. No problems observed so far.
