from completed build David: An NCASE M1 Build

While I'm not the one to really be reviewing how good a SSD is, I feel that the 600p is a amazing little SSD in a class of its own right now. Using a NVMe controller at the price of a SATA M.2, I think this guy is the way to go. It's faster at shorter tasks than the other SSDs in it's price range and a bit slower and longer ones, but for consumer use, short is the more common task. I feel like the price to performance is too good to pass up.

Very, very happy with this SSD. Most of the speeds are what you would expect from a SATA SSD but the read speeds are amazing! Speeds: http://pastebin.com/6EuW2RJS

This is my first M.2 experience. I fit just fine into the Micro 2 and was recognized in bios, but my Win7 install didn't recognize it. I know there are work arounds, but to save time and frustration, I used a Win10 disk and it came up just fine on the install drives list. Boot time from no-power to fully loaded Windows is about 15 seconds. Reboot time is about 30-40 seconds. I'm not taking stars away for the WIn7 issue for obvious reasons.

All good here, just not a fan of the green PCB.

Nice and fast. I get 15 GB/s not 32 but still great

Great m.2 alternative to 2.5in ssds. Not nearly as fast as some m.2 drives but still faster than what you can achieve through Sata. Not a huge fan of the green pcb but you can hardly notice it through a tinted side window.

So NVMe is the future. But if you're looking for top of the line NVMe SSD performance, look elsewhere (for example the Intel 950p series as of this writing). If you're looking for bargain basement SSD deals, also look elsewhere.

So why does this deserve a 4-star rating? Cause it's the cheapest NVMe drive on the market today, and if you can get it for a steal during Black Friday, it's pretty comparable to regular SATA SSDs.

NVMe drives are, in theory, great for system performance, especially when you need to grab a lot of small files like an OS needs. Since they move away from the disk platter model that AHCI had to follow and acknowledge that you can parallelize disk operations since you have lots of chunks of flash memory, plus reduce latency by eliminating lots of steps, you should have awesome system performance. Some online reviews have found a pretty negligible effect on boot times though, so make your own judgement.

Anyhow, this is a M.2 drive. NVMe works through PCI lanes, so no 600 MB/s limitation. I found that with crystal benchmark, I was able to get about 1900 MB/s read, and 570MB/s write speeds. So your read speeds have tripled and your write speeds are a little lower than that of top-of-the-line SATA SSDs. But these results also don't test the biggest advantage, that of multi-queue performance advantage over SATA drives. There are super expensive drives (like the 950p series I mentioned) that can double that read speed and get >1000MB/s write speed and have an even larger gap in multi-queue situations, but those also cost 4x as much.

So if you want to grab an NVMe drive but need to save on your budget, the 600p series is your drive.

That much storage at 1800mbs read.

I had never even heard of an M.2 ssd before I started doing research on this. While the grass will always seem greener on Samsung's lawn, this tiny little drive has done a great job when it comes to game loads and boot times.

Wow... I've never had an SSD before this, but I am simply in awe how fast this thing is and how quickly things load. It blows my mind every time.
