    I got one and it works great, it was used but it works great no problems at all but it was the actual HP drive. They pop up on ebay every now and then.

    Have you run any benchmarks or speed tests on the drive?

    It was a Samsung that was 22x80. I see only 22x60 can fit. I wanted a 256gb so I could make it my boot and app drive.

    @JacekP:
    A.) Do you have problems with booting from SamsungXP941? => SamsungXP941 does have boot-problems. PlextorM6e is better/more reliable in booting:
    https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Samsung-XP941-Plextor-PX-G256-M6e-M-2-Qualification-575/
    => See chapter "Motherboard Compatibility"
    B.) Do you still have the problem with "boot from USB-Stick", if the SamsungXP941 is build in?
    If yes, did you try to disabling secure boot in the bios?

    Does anybody else have experince with m.2-PCIe-SSD's in zBook15-G2 or zBook17-G2 ?
    eg. Samsung SM951 (PCIe3.0 x4), Samsung XP941 (PCIe2.0 x2), Plextor M6e (PCIe2.0 x2) or KINGSTON HyperX Predator (PCIe2.0 x4) ??
    => I need urgent information if anybody does have positive experience with SSD-model ???????? in zBook15-G2 or _17-G2, especially if m.2-SSD is used as a system-harddisk.
    => Questions:
    ...> Are there problems with booting from this m.2-SSD?
    ...> Is the Bios in Bios- or UEFI-mode? Does both works fine?
    ...> Does boot from USB (Linux or Win) work, if the m.2-SSD is built in?
