is it worth?

It's definitely worth it per this article: http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2015/...olute-monster/

But you need a motherboard with 4 PCIe lanes to see any improvement over a SATAII drive.

In terms of bang for the buck I will be sticking with my 512gb 850 evo for the time being, but it is a shame the write speed is SO much less impressive than the reads.

Cant wait to see how this series develops though....

Should give MOBO architecture design a kick up the ass.....

i dont care about the write speed.
i would use it for large kontakt libraries - for fast reading
a dream come true.

i think if you get one for around 280-380€ it is a really good price. hope there will be discounts for xmas
