Wow loving the boot time it is so fast no waiting!
Fast, freaky fast...
Some strangeness with boot after suspend or hibernate but always starts up. Unless you have an application that can actually use the kind of performance increase this has over other lower IOP rated drives, I'd skip it. Grab an 840/850 Evo or Crucial. Big differences in benchmarks don't seem to translate to anything perceptible when firing up your favorite FPS. Great drive...just didn't seem to be worth the extra $$$ for what I was doing. Would not buy again but if it was free...absolutely!
Pretty cheap SSD that I use as an OS/ current game of choice drive.
Blazing SSD, filled it up by accident full of steam games and had to go fix that, making sure I had 20% room left to keep it up to performance, is now at ~50% somehow.
FANTASTIC SSD. Great performance all around the table. While not bang for buck, it's samsung, reliable, and just plain fantastic.
Using this as OS Boot Drive. It is insane how fast my computer boots up now. I press power on my PC and at the login screen in like 10 seconds.
Sure, it may not be an ultra M.2, but these are the go to SSD's for speed and reliability.
Bought two of these right when they came out and am a very happy person. Stuck them into Raid 0 and allowed my computer to turn on extremely fast. 100% would buy again.
Very fast SSD. Fastest consumer SSD. Boots Windows 7 about 8 seconds, shutdowns in less than 5 seconds.
