Buying a 2TB m.2 SSD is probably the most overpriced, silliest thing I've ever bought for a PC build. But I figured I'd make this initial investment now, since upgrading that stick (Which is located on the bottom side of the motherboard) will be a ridiculous pain in the butt once I've started using it properly. Still, m.2 storage is fantastic. Windows boots in mere seconds with it. :D
Great SSD, no issues at all. Just remember to install the Samsung driver!
The drive is nice and snappy.
Super reliable and mind-blowingly fast but at a price premium. Amazing product overall. I use this one to park files for editing.
I absolutely love this SSD. I upgraded from a 960 EVO 1TB SSD. I'm able to have all my storage in a single, speedy unit. Very convenient, and noticeably fast for booting up, copying files, video editing, music production (e.g. loading large sample libraries). This SSD is super fast.
As a quick tip, if you're migrating from one SSD to a larger one like I did, I used Macrium Reflect free software to make a clone of my 1TB SSD. It creates a single large file that has the entire image of your SSD. Then, I copy that cloned image onto a USB hard drive I had. Then, I loaded Macrium Reflect onto a bootable USB stick. (they make it easy to create a Macrium Reflect bootable USB stick). Turn off your computer, replace your old SSD with your new, larger SSD, insert the USB stick, boot up your computer and boot off the USB stick so that Macrium Reflect starts up, and then you can have Macrium Reflect use the CLONE image from the hard drive and restore that image onto your new SSD.
Then, when you remove the hard drive and USB stick and boot up (at least in Windows), you'll notice your PC still only shows you have 1TB. Go into disk manager in Windows, and you'll see a huge unallocated partition. If you right click your current partition (the one that has your operating system on it), you can "EXTEND" it to take up all the room from the unallocated partition.
And just like that, you have more space on your PC! While the actual steps don't take much time (maybe 30-60 minutes of your time), the creation and copying of the image can take several hours, so maybe do it overnight or when you don't need the PC for some hours.
