    I am planning to but am having a hard time choosing between all the different brands, my head keeps telling me to go with Corsair but it is the more pricier than the rest and seems to sell out quicker than the rest ..... any opinions or advice?
    Just my personal opinion but I am a firm believer in Samsung SSDs. But, your links are for different types of SSDs. You have 2 M.2 and a regular Sata III. The Sata III runs through the sata bus and the M.2s run through pcie lanes. The M.2s are much faster.

    The Samsung PM961 will give you the best bang for your buck but I still favor the Samsung 960 EVO:

    I would say to stick with Corsair for certain items, memory, water coolers, fans, a case maybe, but when it comes to a ssd, I`d go with Samsung or Intel

    The Corsair 240 GB SP500 is $154.99 where as the 250 GB Samsung 960 Evo is only $129.99 and always compare the final price of each item with any shipping or taxes added.

    All have great support and Corsair is one of the best in my opinion, they have always treated me great.

    My 760T case arrived yesterday and when I opened the box, it was damaged at the top. One phone call and they shipped out a new one using 2 day express and they are emailing me a pre paid return label.

    No questions asked at all.

    Always research all the options before making a decision, there`s no reason to rush it :)

    The Intel M.2 speeds are not quite that high but the price is great.

    Ok guys, I took your advice and am very pleased that I did, I just got done installing my new 240 gb M.2 SSD, I migrated the OS using Acronis and it went flawlessly, Acronis pretty much did everything, all I had to do is sit back and watch ... LOL

    One question though ...... being as this is an SSD drive, does Windows defragmentation need to be disabled? or is it ok to leave it seeing as there are no real moving mechanisms on it?

    I've always disabled disk defrag when I've had SSDs.

    Unlike Windows 7, the program is not called Defragmentation. Even so, Windows 7 was smart enough to not include SSDs in the defragmentation. In Windows 10 it is called Optimization. Although there is some disagreement about it, Windows 10 is designed to Defragment Mechanical Hard drives and Trim SSDs. I am running an M.2 SSD and about 6 sata SSDs. I leave it enabled and have seen no ill effects on my SSDs.

    I let windows manage my SSDs and don't manually change anything.

    I too stick with samsung or intel for SSDs.

    Got it, I see that Windows automatically enables trim for the drive.

    One more question and I ask because there is not a whole lot of information out there on m.2 ssd's , cleaning? again seeing as there are no moving parts like the conventional ssd's have, in my mind should not make a difference, can you run software like CCleaner on it? I very rarely if ever use the wipe free space feature in CCleaner, was just wondering about using it to clean up internet junk and dumping the recycle bin once a week or so.
