use promo code EMCAWKR87

last sale price was $350 and got +12. http://slickdeals.net/f/7997971-intel-750-series-ssdpedmw400g4r5-hhhl-cem2-0-400gb-pcie-nvme-3-0-x4-mlc-solid-state-drive-ssd-350-down-from-390-430k-iops-free-shipping-lowest-price?v=1&src=SiteSearch

This is NOT meant to be used in a daily use or gaming computer. You will see zero benefits over a Samsung 850 EVO or Pro. This is meant for production workstations that run read and write intensive workloads or for enthusiasts running all sorts of crazy benchmarks.

EDIT: and of course there are idiots who TD because they don't know what it is they are looking at.

i'll throw the uninformed guys here a bone. in order to get similar read and write performance, and there are people who actually do need it, you would need to strap 4 high end SATA SSDs to a RAID controller and put them into RAID 0. but doing so still limits you to using the archaic AHCI which was designed for MECHANICAL hard drives and will limit the IOPS performance which is important when you work with databases and such. in the end, buying this will actually save you money AND headaches IF you need this kind of performance. if you feel that a $100 SSD will work for you just as well as this will, then this item, and by extension this deal, is clearly not for you and you need not cry about the price to other people.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I'll second the edit. This thing is fast! Wish the writes were as good as the reads. And no this won't fit anyone's laptop. It's pcie

I'd suggest putting that it is PCIe in the title. I think there is some fatigue in the SD community of seeing the endless Samsung 850 pro "deals" (or the 10 year warranty gimmicks) for a huge price premium over other SSDs when they translate to very little additional benefit in real life usage. As your title and post is written this could just be another overpriced SATA SSD.

Also, if you want to use this SSD as your boot drive you will need a motherboard that is NVMe compatible, which are not very common.

Why can't someone who games appreciate the read speed? I can!

pcie ssd is still a niche product, although it's basically same ssd using another interface, not the previous transition from spinning disks to ssd. Prices will probably match sata ssds soon, sata bandwidth is exhausted and manufacturers need to push faster discs to keep us buying.

I wish I hadn't just bitten on the drives I just bought and waited out for this instead.

For those of you with your test labs, try a database server on a vm, and then another one on this. That, or if you have one database server with multiple db'ss, try before and after with the log and tempdb's on this compared to your SSD or spinning disk. What a world of difference.

It's also many times more price conscious than the Fusion iO products too, certainly worth a nod.

If anyone has had any success using these as a dedicated ZIL SLOG device and/or L2ARC, I would like to know what your experience is.

I don't have experience with this device, but am answering anyway..
I bet this would be fantastic on a DB as either, depending on frequency of changes in the DB and/or changes in read patterns. Though, considering its size, it may be more than is needed for either.

Even if the average+ user wanted to get this (for the slightly, slightly faster speeds), his motherboard will likely not be capable. With the trend of very cheap boards stripping away the mostly-useless bells and whistles, I mean...
