I live in northeast Arkansas, about an hour outside of Memphis, TN. I ordered the drive Thursday afternoon 3/5/2015. I chose the $25 express shipping option. They shipped the drive out the next day, Friday 3/6/2015. I just got it last night, Tuesday 3/10/2015. So it was pretty fast. No problems with customs - hopefully they use UPS and not DHL when they send yours.

I just looked on their website and it has this message on the SM951's now:

"No stock at the moment, but we take preorders. Expected item arrival date is 11th Mar 2015"

So if you are one of those preorders, it may not ship out until Thursday if they get them today 3/11 like they think they will.

It's kind of surprising to me that the only place in the world that seems to have any of these SM951's in stock is in Northern Ireland of all places. I know they've moved on from the troubles and it's a nice place to live from what I've read, but it doesn't strike me as a place that would be home to a computer memory company that has a hook-up with Samsung. I mean you can't find these ANYWHERE, but a small store in N. Ireland snaps its fingers and gets a shipment of 40-50? Maybe other places have them but haven't started selling them or something.

I watched you install Windows 8 on that SSD in your youtube video. Stupid question: what medium are you installing Windows 8 from? a DVD? a USB drive? Does the medium from which I am installing Windows prevent the drive from writing at full speed? So, if I use a Windows 7 DVD to install, will the SSD be bottleneck'd by the optical drive's read speed?

I should know, but does Windows load from the DVD to the RAM then run the install from the ram? I don't have a very deep understanding of how a Windows 7/8 OS install actually works besides just clicking "next" 10 times on GUI.

When I ordered it just showed in stock. Charge in pending on my credit card. So far so good. The only expedite shipping was DHL, so I went with that. Hopefully it will ship today or tomorrow
4 days is very good coming from the uk.

Yeah it was definitely fast shipping coming from UK. It's just that it was scheduled for Monday delivery, and the tracking said it was with courier and out for delivery on Monday. However, by the end of the day Monday, the DHL guy never showed and it got a hold put on it and I got worried. I google'd stuff about DHL holds and was reading a lot of horror stories about DHL, so I was starting to really get worried. Thankfully, it all went smoothly.

I remember it just showing in stock as well, but it has that new preorder message now. When they replied to me, they said regular shipments would not start until end of March, so I was surprised to see the inventory shoot up to 20+ all of a sudden. The preorder makes sense, just surprised they are getting them that much sooner than they expected.

I use Usb 3 thumb drive with windows 8, but you can use optical for boot just in UEFI mode for Pcie drive.
Instaling from USB will be much faster, coping (to the hard drive not RAM) all those files from disc will take a while , not sure how much faster it is, since i cant remember when i did my last installation using DVD.
My guess would be 2x faster probably more
optical drive will be your botlleneck since DVD max read for 24x is around max 33MB/s , then it needs to spin up every time it need something to read ....
USB 3 thumb drive speed will depend on the brand you have some are slow 35MB/s other like San Disk Extreme can reach 220MB/s read as compared with regular sata ssd write would be over 300MS/s -500MS/s depend on the drive, P3700 400gb has 1000MB/s write.

SM951 i ordered yesterday and today was shipped - using regular royal mail with tracking- wonder if will be much slower than express

It might be not that much better, but Nvme will help with access time for sure
If sm951 had Nvme there would be no point of p3500 3600 or 3700 for regular person, Intel of course will last many times longer
Will make video next week by friday p3700 400Gb vs sm951 512Gb vs xp941 256Gb
