5 out of 5 eggs Works great with Thinkpad X1 Carbon 4th Gen (2016) 05/07/2016

This review is from: SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 2280 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V5P512BW

Pros: You know them (it's super fast!)

Cons: Expensive

Other Thoughts: To get it working with new X1 Carbon:
Create a USB recovery drive in Windows 10;
Restart into BIOS, go to Power options and disable battery;
Open the bottom of the laptop, then peal back the black sticker covering the old SSD;
Replace SSD and reassemble;
Boot from USB Recovery Drive, which will let you reinstall Windows 10.

Pros: Awesome. I don't know why others have had problems, but mine does everything it's advertised to. Works with 2 Corsair Vengeance 8GB kits (CML8GX3M2A1600C9) just fine, even though they're not on the compatibility list.

Cons: Documentation (and descriptions in Bios) was NOT written by a native English speaker (maybe a computerized translation?), because much of it is unintelligible. Doesn't affect funtionality though, so I won't doc an egg.

Other Thoughts: So, some people had some DOAs, and were super whiny about it. So what? Everything works very well. I would buy again, and I already have recommended to friends.
