What customers say about "Key Specs"
Samsung 970 EVO (MZ-V7E1T0BW) V-NAND M.2 PCI Express Solid State Drive
  • The only thing I can objectively tell is different than my prior ssd is I can move and delete huge files instantly.
  • It is very effective and fast for me coz i rec 4K video.
  • Better then expected! Very high speed!
  • I had processed a batch of photos with the old drive and it had taken roughly 5 minutes to finish. I processed the same batch with the 970 EVO and it blew my mind, 45 seconds from import to batch adjustment and export.
  • If you're a gamer or just average user, just buy a regular SSD. Trust me.
Samsung 970 PRO (MZ-V7P512BW) 512 GB V-NAND M.2 PCI Express Solid State Drive - Black
  • This little stick-of-gum sized piece of hardware blows my mind. I did a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro onto it in mere minutes, and the system boots in a few seconds. Fastest as i expect!
  • This is the best and fastest drive I have ever had by far.
  • Your PC feels so fast and responsive. I highly recommend that if you can spend the extra 100 for the 970 Pro just do it. The advantages are very clear. This is a wonderful wonderful SSD. 10/10.
  • The performance is outstanding, blazing fast and very stable!
  • Computer boot up is much quicker then before and autocad runs very fast utilizing this new drive.

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung 970 EVO (MZ-V7E1T0BW) V-NAND M.2 PCI Express Solid State Drive
  • The NVMe interface (PCIe M.2 2280) offers enhanced bandwidth, low latency, and power efficiency, perfect for tech enthusiasts, high end gamers, and 4K & 3D content designers. Superb SSD!
  • Can't beat the speed of the nvme interface. Fastest i/o currently available.
  • I would definitely recommend this product as Samsung has an excellent reputation in solid state memory and the upgrade is well worth it if you have an M.2 NVMe socket available.
  • The 970 Pro has no components on the back side of the card, so it should fit in even the lowest-clearance applications
  • You can benchmark all you want, but there is 0 perceivable difference between an NVMe and a Sata3 SSD.
Samsung 970 PRO (MZ-V7P512BW) 512 GB V-NAND M.2 PCI Express Solid State Drive - Black
  • The 970 Pro uses the much better 2-bit MLC V-NAND. This NAND has several advantages over 3-bit 3D NAND, much better performance, much better endurance, more reliable and the most important one, doesn't slow down like 3-bit 3D NAND does.
  • Super easy physical installation and lightening fast speeds!
  • Fast and quality SSD that is easy to install. Highly recommended!
  • I'm super impressed. The M.2 form factor is extremely compact and installed with zero issues.
  • Wow. Seriously amazing. The M.2 form factor is easy to install and performs like a dream.
