This is the best consumer drive coming out this year, right? Everyone else is just competing with the 960 EVO on performance-power-value?

Extremely underrated deal. Repped, TU. Not sure why the 960 Evo deal blew up for the same price but this one didn't. Especially with 2 more years of warranty on the 970's, and it being a new release.

If you use this strictly for a boot drive, you're totally wasting your money. The likelihood that you have to RMA an M.2 drive if it's properly installed is very low. Unless you're an extreme power user, it should last your entire build life no problem.

For sequential yeah, one can argue the intel 900p/905p performs better as an OS drive but it's deadly expensive

Maybe people have a different idea of what "boot drive" means. Mine holds everything except steam games that I don't play often and movie/tv/music collection (which is all on plex server). If people only put windows on it and install programs to a different drive, and documents etc on different drive... that would be a waste. But I thought people only did that when SSDs were $150 for 60gbz

Why are M.2 SSD better than the regular drivers?

Nvme is more important than the m.2 form factor, but the m.2 is a lot smaller looks sort of like a large stick of memory. NVMe means it's a ton faster than a traditional SSD and the Samsung's in particular are faster than most other NVMe.
