Thank you for progressive house in your videos.

Charles Swanson says:

Very Nice

XGamingStormX says:

why is that indian in the start of a video?

JV the PC Bee says:

SSD’s are becoming more affordable, now all we need is for M.2 drives to become a bit more affordable too! Small form factor builds are the futureeee!

ulamss5 says:

Honestly, this review felt more like an advertisement, and the 950’s exclusion deliberate.

TenzoG says:

It isnt hardwarecanucks if it isnt Dimitri 🙁

Emanuell Lovnički says:

Very good SSD for video production and more

rwprime1 says:

Thanks for the nice video, but without the king of the hill, the Samsung 950 Pro, this is pointless.

Dmitry Klokov says:

Why Samsung 950 not included uin comparison?

Wedge says:

Eich not another green PCB

therminatron says:

toshiba is always best in what it do

Lamont Shuman says:

The results went to fast. You should slow the transition down so people can read the results without pausing the frame.

Pavlos Constantinou says:

Question. Is it recognizable in the bios easily? qill it work for example with my X58 Asus P6N mobo ?

Dan L says:

I’m fine with my Samsung 950 Pro NVMe M.2 SSD.

ArcanePath360 says:

I just can’t spend half a grand on something that looks smaller and lighter than a credit card.

Martin Klinge says:

Temperature is an issue with Samsung 950 Pro due to m.2 placement on many boards. Very little attention is given to this aspect of new pci-e ssd chips. The ceiling is 74C for throttling speed. This OCZ might have similar issues.

Simona Andronic says:

why no temps?

F Te says:

Where is the Samsung 950 in the benchmarks …. that it’s direct competition you retards

helenHTID says:


Have you been out in sun way too much?

Hirish V says:

Hello @HardwareCanucks Does it support on , Alienware 15 R3 laptop with Mobile Intel® CM236 Chipset.

Thatrollingmaster69 says:

Where is the comparison with the Samsung 950 Pro ? The 950 Pro is the closest to the RD400, in terms of both performance and price… How could you forget it ?

Razor2048 says:

The endurance ratings are very low for those capacities, 15nm flash is horrible and should be avoided.

NeMi says:

When will it be launched?

Peter Lindhard says:

How much did Toshiba pay for you to leave out the only real competitor?

MGThePro says:

Isn’t it already as fast as DDR1 200Mhz? holy shit. ^^

λGhost says:

Intel’s 750 Pro huh?

Huy Vo says:

2 m.2 raid is pretty crazy enough.

Augustin Maradona Olarian says:

Samsung 950 PRo is way faster than this one and is cheaper. Maybe that’s why you didn’t included it in your benchmarks

Lee Allen says:

love my Gigabyte Z170 UD3P mobo M.2 pcie 3.0 x4

Pau Len Zang says:

Will this be compatible with Mac Pro mid 2010?

ChaotiX says:


You gave me a heart attack.

Sean Goresht says:

As Canadians, should it not be “Oh ce zed”?

Abdulmalik Saeed says:

Nothing can beat Samsung 950 Pro 512Gb
