from completed build Atlas Evolv'd X99
I've had my eye on these since they were first released and finally got to pull the trigger with this new build. It doesn't improve much on boot times since most of that time is spent in POST, but loading my heavy apps like Lightroom and Photoshop are nearly instant. Some quick benchmarks show the drive's sequential reads at over 2,400MB/s and sequential writes at over 1,500MB/s.

I got mine for $229. This tiny little SSD is fast as hell! Strongly recommended.

Super fast. The small size is good for systems with limited space.

This thing is fast. Loaded it as the boot drive and Windows just flies. It has enough space for windows, several games, and then some. I didn't have any issues in setting up as primary. I just made sure the BIOS and anything other updates were applied.

Crystal disk mark benched at 2552 MB/s and 1526 MB/s sequential Read & Write. This slick little stick of SSD is F.A.S.T.

Blazing fast. Also blazing. This runs very hot 50-60c idle temps inside the Maximus Formula's armor.

Fast. Honestly, faster than I need. For a home server, probably wouldn't notice a difference if it was half the speed it is.

from completed build MSi X99 Godlike Gaming / aka Swan Song
This thing is awesome. It reads and writes slightly faster than the intel 750d, although the 750 handles 300mb/s more on the 4k r/w's. The random access speed, everything about this is amazingly stupid.
It's overkill for an OS drive, but some apps will be running off of it, I was more attracted to form factor than performance. I currently have no additional power or sata cables in my machine handling data.

There isn't a whole lot to say about this fantastic SSD. It's fast, reliable, and has been in my system for over 2 years. I use it as my OS drive in conjunction with 9 other internal drives for media and gaming storage. Fantastic drive!
