Just too expensive for much smaller drive compared to Samsung 960Pro.

Overall good to see MLC still used in mid-range NVMe drives.

$1600+ for a drive that can't even beat sammy's performance, somehow I just don't see this thing selling very well.......

Even my 2yr old 950 pro's are faster than this thing on a 2 year old mobo, and they are only 250 & 500 GB units which by the general standards, should be a bit slower than their larger counterparts :)

Yeah but carbon fiber (look or real?) and and a spiffy backplate will sure lure in those looking for the gamer aesthetic. All it's missing is RGB everywhere.
