    Hi everyone,
    I wanted to know which SSD got the new Razer Blade 2017. Is it the samsung PM951 or the PM961 ?

    Thanks for your answers guys !

    I've seen reports of people getting either of them. Would be best to check yourself to see which one you got. That way you know for sure :)

    I don't get a razer blade yet. That's for a futur purchase, to know if it's better to spend 100$ more to buy an other SSD and replace the active one.

    From what I seen mostly, the 256gb comes with PM951 and the larger capacity ones with PM961.

    I second this. Also from what I've seen, the smaller ones usually come with the 951, though I have seen a few smaller ones that have the 961, and most of the larger ones come with the 961. Solid state storage is still hard to come by sometimes these days with how the industry is changing, so sometimes manufacturers just gotta work with what they get.

    Thanks for your answers guys, that's why I saw too. 256gb comes with the PM951 and other ones with PM961

    Unfortunatelythe PM951 and the PM961 don't get the same write/read speed. The last one is so much better and getting a PM951 instead of a PM961 should be so disappointing

    Yeah I know one is faster then the other. If you are really worried about read/write speed. just get the cheapest one and pick up your own ssd and put it in yourself :) there are ones out there that have even better speeds then the PM961

    It´s what I did, I bought the 256GB version and put a 1TB SM961 in my machine last year.
