    Anybody have experience using Kingston HyperX Predator PCIe with NUC6i5SYH?

    Bibbit

      I know the NUC won't run the Samsung 950 Pro at full speed, so I'm wondering if folks have any experience with other M.2 drives that cost less. I'm considering getting the Kingston HyperX Predator 240GB PCIe for my NUC6i5SYH. I'm wondering if anybody has experience with it for this kit. I'm also considering other drives, but it seems for this kit the Kingston makes the most sense.

       

      The Kingston HyperX Predator 240GB PCIe is about $37 cheaper than the Samsung 950 Pro. And then there's the Samsung PM951, which is $15 cheaper than the Kingston. Finally there's the Samsung 850 EVO M.2, but that's not nearly as fast as the others since it's simply an SATA III drive. There's also the Samsung SM910, but it's more than the 950 Pro, and has lower specs. So, here's what I'm considering:

       

      Drive
      Read/sWrite/sCost
      Samsung 950 Pro PCIe NVMe2200MB/s900MB/s$X
      Kingston HyperX Predator PCIe1400MB/s600MB/s$X - $35
      Samsung PM950 PCIe NVMe1000MB/s280MB/s$X - $50
      Samsung 850 EVO M.2540MB/s540MB/s$X - $95
