Unpacking zip file happened early on, before I was worried about the drive, so I didn't pay attention. When the virtualbox got stuck installing extensions, I didn't see much CPU use, but the transfer rate was in single digits kb or something, so I have no idea what's up with that. On a regular HDD, I never seen this sort of crap.

Did you pay attention to the disk graph? Was it showing 100% busy, but very little low bytes/sec?

Probably can't help though...

yep, not busy at all, just very low transfer rates.

Did you install Samsung driver or is it with Windows default drivers? Are you worried at all about incorrectly recorded "power on hours" SMART value?

Switched to another m2 ports on the same PC, fired it up, smart values are increasing, specifically "number of error information log entries" and "controller busy time". Power on hours incremented, standing now at 2 even though it was on for much longer than that. However, after installing Samsung drivers (which I didn't before), my 4k values became much better.

Yes there are, located at the Samsung site below. All you need is the NVMe drivers v3.1, just scroll down to find the download link.

Tried to install it and it said nvme drive not connected and wont install. My SM961 is installed in a Dell XPS 13 Laptop. Not sure if that matters.

Thanks

Hmm, I have no clue then. That's the driver's I am using for my SM961, but I am on a desktop board. So maybe it's something to do with the laptop? Or maybe you need Dell drivers for nvme? Just not sure really. Maybe that slot you have is only for SATA based M.2 drives?

Well device manager detects the drive. I can boot from it. I get about 1500 mb/s read/write. So its working but with basic microsoft driver. Frustrating it doesn't install the driver!

I know why. Got my Raid chipset turned on. So the drive is running through RST.
