I am. But I cant really make a comparison with other type of SSDs since I have moved directly from HDD. Compared to that yes it made a huge difference for me regarding loading times..

thank you, I am running a samsung evolution pro 500g ssd, want to know if performance and loading times are better with the m.2 solid state drive and if it is worth it trying.

I'm running P3Dv4 on a 512GB 960 Pro M.2 having moved over from a 512GB 850 Pro SATA and to human perception, you won't notice much difference. On diagnostic software you will. That said, loading time depends on how much you have installed and the capabilities of the  PCIe / NVMe on your mother board as well. I'm quite pleased with the performance and I have a minimum of stutters as a result, which is noticeable. :gaul:

If you already have a fast SSD which connects via a SATA cable I wouldn't bother changing to a M2   ......  Obviously it does depend on read/write speeds but if they are similar I'd recommend not bothering   ....... save the money  :)

I am, loading times are greatly reduced.  I can't speak to in-sim performance as I also updated my CPU, GPU and ram at the same time.
