Will this work with my XPS15 9560? Currently have 512GB SSD on it and a 1TB would be nice to have.

Yeah was gonna say considering the much better drives that have come down to around this price while this one has stayed stagnant, and considering the heat issues these have, not a slick deal.

The heat issue was fixed months ago via firmware upgrade.
I'm only aware of two "much better" drives that have come out since then: the Phison E12, and Samsung 970 Plus Evo, and the Samsung at least is still a lot more expensive. (Maybe the WD Black?) This HP has been superseded by the EX950, but that's actually a worse drive unless you very specifically need sequential read/write performance and don't care about higher latency/worse random performance. It was basically a benchmark-tuned version of this that made it worse for most real-world use cases.

Samsung 961 (basically a 960 Pro) was only 15 bucks more yesterday:

The SM961 isn't a universally better drive. Its only real advantage is MLC instead of TLC, but since it didn't have an endurance rating, that's more of a moot point. The HP comes with a 5-year manufacturer warranty, where the Samsung was through the store only (and firmware support is unknown since it's an OEM drive): https://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Com...3vsm488611

Those numbers seem off. Not the numbers professional reviewers got: https://www.tomshardware.com/revi...608-2.html

Also the point was about the fact this drive hasn't come down in price for around a year, so it's not an unusual/slick deal. This is the going sale price as you pointed out. (I was agreeing with you...)

Touche, I stand corrected. (And nice find!) That said, real-world results put this right behind the 960 Pro (http://www.thessdreview.com/our-r...price/5/). Even if there weren't a $15 difference, I'd recommend the HP for its manufacturer support. (I'd also guess that power consumption on the HP is lower given its age, making it better for laptops, but I haven't been able to confirm that.)

The power consumption is indeed quite low: https://www.anandtech.com/show/13...d-review/8

But that also comes at the trade-off for a very slow wake up time. (54ms vs 6ms for the Samsungs).

I'm by no means saying it's a terrible drive. Just with Samsung's record/performance vs HP's, when the price is almost the same, I'd go Samsung. Both drives will easily go through a normal warranty period without issue (if the OEM Samsung had one), so that means less to me, personally. But fair enough!
