Finding any information out about anything Alienware X51 R3 related is like pulling teeth....
I managed to ask 1 question in the Alienware Club on the Dell website, now it won't even let me log in....
Nobody on this forum answers any questions....
All I want to know is, what m.2 SSD's are compatible with the X51 R3....
I understand that Alienware use the Samsung PM951, but according to a few reviews, the speeds are on par with a standard SSD, so what other brands/models do people use?
Anyone?....
Anyone at all?....

To anyone interested... I finally got *PITA* the Samsung 950 Pro to be the boot drive off of using Samsung Magician. I kept getting the black screen and 2 beeps and no boot into bios. Finally isolated it to the ram. For some reason it didn't like the ram upgrade I had done earlier and putting the original ram into it got me over the hump. One other thing is to remember to remove the 3.5" hdd before restarting so that only the 950 pro is the boot drive. Hope that helps anyone searching for answers coz it took way longer than it should of. Cheers.
