* Performance may vary depending on the SSD’s firmware version, system and hardware configuration. Performance measurements are based on IOmeter 1.1.0. The write performances were measured with Intelligent TurboWrite technology activated. The sequential write performances after Intelligent TurboWrite region are: up to 250 MB/s(250GB), 500 MB/s(500GB) and 900 MB/s(1TB). 
* Test system configuration: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz,DDR4 2133MHz 8GBx2 OS-Windows 10 Pro 64bit Asrock Z-170 Extreme7+
* Results are based on a comparison with Samsung SATA SSDs.
* HMB (Host Memory Buffer) technology enables the SSD to use the DRAM of the host system for read/write caching and buffering.

I have used Samsung SSDs before and Samsung never failed me yet. Packaging was original as I expected. No damages. All was in good shape. Just plug and play. All good. Price wise, it was bundled with the motherboard and cheap by all means and its a bargain. A++
