Intel's 750 series SSD came out in mid 2015 and blew people away with the speed of NVMe. A friend of mine was building a pretty intense 5960X build at the time, and of course living vicariously through him, I was suggesting him a bunch parts. Disappointed that he didn't end up including one of those, I've been able to enjoy NVMe myself now thanks to Plextor's new price effective option.

I was concerned with DMI 2.0 potentially be a limiting factor with the M.2 interface on my motherboard. Maybe some additional homework would have cleared that up but I went with a standard PCI-E slot variant. Also compared to other NVMe drives with green PCBs, this comes in black, is wrapped in a cool shroud, and has a heatsink that helps prevent throttling under heavy use.
