    Not NVMe is a deal-breaker for PCIe SSDs.

    Seems like a bit of an old-school mash together solution, not very elegant and quite power hungry.

    Have used a couple of Plextor's M2 drives recently which they also sell on a PCI-E adaptor board and at just over £300 for 512GB they seem like a much better solution, not quite as fast but good enough for almost all uses and faster than a SATA drive.

    Obviously G.Skill are trying to fool people who think all PCIe SSDs are are equal. Waste of time these SSDs. NVMe can't come soon enough
