960 EVO Polaris 250GB M.2 2280 PCI-e 3.0 x4 NVMe Solid State Drive

If you're looking for the next great advance in PC performance, the Samsung 960 EVO is a smart choice. An NVMe™ interface provides enhanced bandwidth, and a new controller and Samsung's intelligent TurboWrite technology deliver next-generation performance. Included are an advanced maintenance software solution and a 3-year limited warranty, which increase its value.

The 960 EVO offers the next level of performance in storage for smart consumers who want an experience beyond what the SATA interface can provide. An enhanced bandwidth, provided by the NVMe interface, combined with the new Polaris controller, facilitates sequential R/W speeds up to 3,200/1,900 MB/s and random R/W speeds up to 380/360K IOPS, respectively. Plus, the new Intelligent TurboWrite technology accelerates write speeds even further*.

Great performance is not measured by speed alone. How long the performance can be sustained is also important. The 960 EVO holds its own by boasting up to 400 TBW* for the 1TB model. Dynamic Thermal Guard prevents overheating, protecting the data and ensuring optimal responsiveness. It's all backed by a 3-year limited warranty**.

The 960 EVO comes with the newly upgraded Magician—an advanced software solution for users to monitor, manage and maintain the drive. Magician provides personalized firmware checking and additional functions tailored for individual user's drives. It even updates the firmware automatically to make sure that the drive's performance stays up to date.

Lightening Fast!

These drives are that quick they make regular SSD's look slow lol. I highly recommend you buy two and put them in a RAID 0 configuration which will yield twice the performance!!

Michael Evans 2018-06-17


2 tiny little drives in a RAID 0 are churning out 3579MB/s read and 3041MB/s write.

Super fast drive EVO 960 256GB - Running Dual Boot Windows 10 and Linux Ubuntu 16.04

Super fast drive.
If your thinking about buying one and your mobo supports it, DO IT !!!
Fitted it to an Asus X99A mobo, 32GB RAM, AMD 390 8GB system

Windows Install time from USB3 = 5 minutes
Linux install from USB = 3.5 minutes
Software installs extremely fast on this drive.

Installed Windows 10 first, ran Diskmgmt.msc, select the 960 drive split the partition
Install Linux
Works perfect
When booting I can select Linux or Win10 with Grub menu

It is ridiculously fast at unzipping files.

ATTO disk benchmark
Speeds are close to manufacturer 3100MB read 1300 write

This is easily one of the fastest drives you can fit in 2017 for £125 !
really glad i bought it.

i will run some tests and update the results here soon.
Hoping it will speed up lightroom exports and video exports

Well worth buying
