Of course 960 Pro is the best of the best. If you got limited budged, then go for SM961 (slightly worse than 960 Pro).

However, I don't think that they are gonna fix this bios issue. Have a look at this thread https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Lenovo-Y700-15ISK-High-Performance-NVMe-SSD-capped-at-PCIE-2-0/m-p/3520504#M151632 and the blog post here http://www.geektech.co.nz/high-performance-nvme-ssd-capped-at-pcie-2-0-speeds-y700

Definitely 960 pro, but if the budget is short go for 960 Evo.

I've also installed the Samsung 960 EVO 500GB in my Y700-15ISK, but I was a bit dissapointed with the benchmark results:

Do you think that the speed are limited by the bios? If that's the case I hope that Lenovo will provide a solution for this issue shortly.

Guys, I too bought and successfully installed the 960 EVO 500GB. It boots up all the way to Windows in ~ 8-9 seconds. It is a completely different computer! 

 

Here are some quick benchmarks for you:

That is great info to know. :smileyhappy:   I am about to take the leap too with this same laptop. I have seen the threads here and elsewhere about upgrading but can you confirm which process(s) you used to install your new ssd?  I just want to be sure I have my ducks in a row to do this as painlessly as possible and what appears to be the most seamless approach. Sorry if it is a duplicate of someone else asking you the same question.

Hey skylar2,

 

I just followed Orbi's steps on this thread (now deleted for some reason).

 

However, after doing so, I booted up, and encountered this problem:

 

Windows kind of booted up to login screen (without wallpaper, and with a black screen after login. I can move the mouse, and even bring up the Ctrl+Alt+Del screen that lets me log out, but that's pretty much it. Even the power button in the UI does not work.

 

After almost a day of searching through Google I found the solution hidden in here

 

Basically, for some reason, Magician didn't make the new SSD the new C:/ drive and so Windows was referencing the old drive, which caused lots of problems. Re-doing the Magician migration, shut down the laptop, remove the old drive, boot up with only the SSD and then shutting down and re-adding the old drive worked, as Windows automatically asigned the C:/ drive to the SSD.

 

I am still not sure as to what can I delete from the old drive so as to not lose my One Key Recovery, so my old drive is sitting there, accessible, but pretty useless at the moment.

 

Hope it helps.

 

Regards,

David
