Nice review Tom, I have the PCIE 900P and I like the drive yes it's expensive but when loading Star Citizen it comes into its own then, the other thing that I like is the drives longevity compared to other offerings, which only time will tell if that bares out.

Not slow as in mechanical but SSD's are still not quite as good as the Optanes when it comes to loading SC but that'll improve over time when it comes out of alpha

...warranty void, if used in a multi-user, multi-CPU data center environment...

Is that not the envrionment the review says the drive is ideal for? Other reviews give the drive a recommend (price issues asside) due to the low queue depth performance making average PC use snappier
