World Class Performance in a Tiny Form Factor

The Samsung SM951 M.2 PCIe SSD (NVMe model) is the new performance leader in M.2 form factor SSD’s. It provides up to 2150MB/s read and 1550MB/s write sequential data transfer rates, along with astounding random I/O ratings of 300k reads and 100k writes.

Ready for today’s systems:
The Samsung SM951 (NVMe) is compatible as a boot device in a wide variety of systems with a free PCIe 2.0/3.0 M.2 socket. This includes Z97/X99/Z120 based motherboards, modern notebooks, and tiny form factor PC’s like the Intel NUC. It can also act as additional super high speed storage in almost any desktop with a spare PCIe slot when combined with a PCIe adapter such as the Lycom DT-120.

Apple Compatibility:
Note, this SSD is “NOT” compatible in Apple MacBook Air, MacBook Pro or iMac computers. So far testing in the Classic (pre-cylindrical) Mac Pro has been unsuccessful when combined with a standard M.2 to PCIe adapter, which we think will change when a NVMe driver is included with OSX. For now Use the SM951 AHCI version which definitely works in the classic Mac Pro.

Key Features:
Extreme performance – up to 2150/1550 sequential read/write data transfer rates and 300k/100k read/write random IOps

Bootable in Windows 7/8/10 and Linux (Not yet OSX)

PCIe 3.0 device, backwards compatible with PCIe 2.0

Small M.2 form factor plugs straight into your PCIe-based M.2 socket with no additional cables required

Warranty
The Samsung SM951 is an OEM product, and the 3 year warranty is provided by the seller

What’s in the box:
Bare SSD Drive in plain packaging (Bulk Packaged)

The single biggest difference you can buy! Massive improvement! M.2 the only way to fly IF you have the $$. Read the specs and look at your socket! This 951 is much faster than it’s little brother (and costs more respectively). This component is one you research the heck out of before you buy. I literally boot (“power on” to desktop in 17 seconds, over and over again. With my previous Samsung 850 Pro I was booting in 48 seconds. Keep in mind also that this is my highest end machine with no holds barred, cost included…

Amazing SSD drive at a great price Replaced the 128GB SSD on my HP Spectre X360 (M.2 NVMe) with this drive and it was the best money I have spent in a long time. This drive is fast, reliable, and I can now use all the apps I needed on my Spectre that I was unable to install before.The installation was a breeze, following a video on YouTube and it only took about 5 minutes.
