So much faster than my Samsung EVO's on SATA. I guess the PCIe bus is the difference.

Blazing fast speed, great price for the capacity! This loads everything fast and is all you really need if you are a gamer. One con I have with this is that the TBW is 220. However this does not affect me since I do not do heavy work or art. 220 TBW is a lot for me, and I will probably never reach that in 30 years! Overall this is a great drive!
