Well at least it looks nicer than the average pcie SSD. Should have went with a black PCB though. If I hadn't picked up the intel 730 drives on Black Friday, I'd probably consider getting one of these (or something similar depending on what comes out) once I start putting together an X99 rig.

Lol, Amazon has it listed for four grand! Are they serious? Anyway Newegg has it listed for 761 bucks. Still too high even for enthusiasts imho.

Because Samsung's Canadian PR firm has changed like 50 times in the last three months and getting samples from them is next to impossible.
