A new level of performance and capacity on the M.2 form factor is what Samsung's 2TB 960 Pro NVMe SSD brings to the table. What more could you ask for? Sure, the drive is expensive, but look what you get. We can't think of any other piece of hardware that can impact one's overall user experience like the 960 Pro can. It is hard to believe that such a tiny SSD can deliver performance on this level. This is a testament to Samsung's leadership in the SSD arena.
If you just can't see spending $1300 on an SSD, then you won't have to wait long, because the next bullet in Samsung's chamber is the low-cost 960 EVO, which is the second-fastest SSD ever made. However, if you want the best SSD ever made then Samsung's 2TB 960 Pro is THE SSD for you. The 960 Pro is not just another piece of hardware; it is an investment in your user experience. The Samsung 960 Pro is superior to the competition in every way. If you are on the fence waiting for Optane to hit, don't hold your breath, because it will likely be a long wait and even more expensive.
As we explained earlier, we do not have Samsung's newest NVMe driver in hand at this time. The new driver might deliver even better performance, but we feel this is unlikely given the results we were able to extract from the 960 Pro. We do know a bit more about Samsung's revamped Magician software. The new Magician will have an intuitive user interface that will visually display what drive you are running, allow you to secure-erase individual files, instantly see the condition of the drive in an easy to decipher format, check system compatibility, along with many other useful features.
Needless to say, the user experience delivered by Samsung's 960 Pro is second to none. The drive is nothing short of incredible. If you have to have the best, then you have to have a 2TB Samsung 960 Pro. It is as simple as that. Samsung's 960 Pro 2TB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD is TweakTown recommended.
