Important note for novice users! (bad performance?)
Beoordeeld in Nederland op 25 augustus 2021
First off, Its an original Samsung drive, not an el cheepo Chinese ripoff.
I read a lot of bad reviews here about this drive.
To be direct and blunt they are all written by people who have just a very basic understanding of how computers and electronics work.
Here is a short and easy to follow way to maximize performance and get the average speeds Samsung advertises.
1- Make sure you have a PCIe slot free that supports at least PCIe v3.0, this is a MUST, because using a PCIe v2.0 has only half the throughput of V3.0.
2- Make sure your system/mainboard supports a PCIe V3.0 with 4 or more lanes in that slot. (triple check your manufacturers manual and/or website for this, some mainboard have mixes slots!)
3- Once in an OS (Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, etc) use a tool like CrystalDiskINFO to read what transfer mode the drive is connected to.
4- If you have PCIe 3.0 x4 there (in Crystaldiskinfo) than enjoy your very fast NVMe drive!
If not, start over at step 1 until you find out why you don't have the correct transfer mode/slot.
I added a 2 slot comparison photo to show the difference.
