Got it for 189 Canadian at BestBuy as it was on sale. 10 dollar difference between the 980 1TB, but the 980 didn't have a DRAM Cache. The SSD is blazingly fast! Can boot up to windows in 15 seconds.

If you have the PCI-E lanes to support it... This is hilariously potent. Read/writes out of this world, that only workstations would ever truly find useful, if even that. For games, you'll never worry about load times again.

For $50, 1TB of really speedy NVMe SSD speeds, this is a great choice for your storage needs.

As good as it is expensive; costs a decent ~200€, but it is more than just insanely fast, probably among the fastest SSDs using PCIe 3.0. Downloading Samsung Magician software is recommended, it probably helps operating the device better?
