Good price but might be the wrong time to buy

I expect the 970 pro and evo to be out before long

Until then my 950 pro will suffice
Sexy

Maybe but there's always the next thing on the horizon, always a reason not to buy etc

Not when it's brand new to the market
Bought my 950 pro the first month it was out and have never regretted upgrading up to a pcie ssd
Didn't see a reason up upgrade to 960 pro from 950, but if I'd just bought 950 pro when the 960 came out I would have regretted it. I think the same thing will happen with 970 pro when it comes out in a few months (if they keep releasing them feb/mar/apr)

There is always something new out "soon". Completely pointless argument as 99.99% won't notice any improvements, which are not worth the paper they are printed on.

From a PC Performance(Real world) standpoint, NVME offers little to no real speed benefit unless you are repeatedly moving 1GB files around, and then it only just edges it out. I'd reccomend crucial mx300/Samsung 850 Evo as better SATA alternatives. (mx300 comes in the m.2 formfactor aswell)

Your opinion is contradicted by the hands-on tests at
I have this drive, it is excellent. It never feels slow, even under heavy loads.

NVME M.2 are miles ahead of normal SSD’s and any normal person can see that when transferring data or game, apps, OS load times.
my laptop has 2 m2 slots but i can only have one m2 port in use at any 1 time (1 sata 1 pcie) anyone know of a work around please?

(taken from manual)
M.2 SSD Limitation
When slot 3 has an M.2 SATA SSD installed, then slot 2 will not be available for M.2 PCIe SSDs.

Good price but still so expensive per gig for nvme.
