Yes the 960 pro EVO 500 gb is pretty good.

I got the samsung 850 pro 512gb. It reviewed better than EVO and I got the gist that EVO was the budget one.

NVMe is the future. I would get 960 EVO over 850 PRO. The latency is even better. I really like NVMe that I got two 1TB 960 PRO for my workstation PC.

I forgot to add. Depends on your budget since you only specify the capacity. For the best of the best go with 960 EVO 256gb or 500gb. You can still get PCIe adapter if you have no m.2 slot.

Fair enough. That's a good storage piece.

In real world use, it doesn't matter what SSD you use. It's going to be blazing fast regardless.

pretty much this, unless you need an m.2 drive because you're using a really small formfactor case with no drive bays, the average person wouldn't notice the difference between an m.2 drive and a sata unless you are editing huge files from the drives on a regular basis, which makes you not average. . .

True but if the prices are close to each other why not get the PCIe one? At 250GB range they are even priced the same.

It does fix stuttering issues on Adobe Premiere PRO CC. At first I thought my 6950x isn't fast enough. But my cousin told me to change to the NVMe drives. It really work.
