Probably the best speed on the market for an NVME ssd right now, but is missing "pro" features that consumers desire on Samsung's "pro" series. It is also priced exorbitantly. Probably avoid and just get a slightly slower but half the price ssd. [Nov '20 Factchecker]

MORE DETAILS

You will not be able to purchase a Samsung SM951 directly from a retailer, as this is SSD is manufactured for OEMs. However, I was recently gifted this from a friend who picked it up in used condition. Great SSD for the value, as this tends to go for $30. Not the best choice if you are going to be storing tons of games, as 256GB is quite limited. But as a boot or file storing drive, this drive has excellent value and mid-tier performance. Pretty much what you'd expect from Samsung. [Oct '20 NorthStar]
