    Some of those as well
    Those stats are incredible.

    Just bought a new laptop which I manually upgraded with two M.2 drives as well. Ah well, at least these will be a lot cheaper when I go for my next upgrade.

    Glad to see more competition in the NVMe area.
    I will buy a NVMe SSD by the end of this year, still there are few choices as for now.
    Plextor's M8e also looks good, altough a bit slower..but uses Toshiba's MLC NAND.
    I wonder, Samsung Dynamic Thermal Guard technology is implemented to overcome the thermal throttling ?

    You can only raid those on Z170/270 chipset

    I plan to switch out my 512 GB 950 Pro when the 2 TB 960 Pro becomes available.

    Yes but that 4TB will be more than $1200.

    Hopefully I can grab a 250GB when they release cause those speeds are amazing.

    I just bought a 525GB Crucial MX300 M.2 drive for $120. I have a hard time justifying paying $130 for a 250GB drive, regardless of the performance difference.

    Also, with Samsung's self-destructing Note 7....I find it hard to support the company. Next thing we'll hear is that Samsung SSDs are catching fire.

    Careful making statements like that. You'll get attacked by the SSD elitists...
