    I'm not in US and many items cannot be delivered to my country too, but I'm using mailforwarding service and it is cheaper to send combined parcels with exception of large items such as good cheap used server cases :)

    Thx, I saw it, this is interesting too, but I'm too lazy and impatient to ask what exact drives are there :) Also despite it seems to be a legit listing, the seller's rating is only 36 feedbacks and no returns accepted. The item is in Canada and I don't know customs clearence nuances for US. Considering that 6.4TB Fusion drives are in the same price range in another thread I just bought two of these more freshy NVMe drives. Plus in the description of this item: "These PCIe SSD's are new opened box and have been SMART health tested 100%..."

    FWIW - I've tried a number of these HGST drives with HP proliants - PCIE / U.2 and in various configurations and I can not get a successful post - Always red screen of death - Illegal op code.

    Thx for info. I have one 6.4TB PCIE drive currently working without any issues (just plug and play) in Supermicro X11 motherboard.

    They work in my X9 SuperMicro motherboard too - plug and play. Just HP doesn't play nice with them.

    Probably some firmware conflicts/issues/restrictions between the nvme and the system bios.

    I thought the same - except I can get m.2 NVME and a cheap m.2 <-> PCIE adapter and it works just fine. I just returned my SN260 - HGST just responded saying HP G9 is NOT on their compatibility list. Kinda weird - oh well.

    Bought one - too good to pass up. $470 shipped is at least double the value I was getting with my pm953 960gb drives, and we'll see how performance is on this vs 4x pm953 in an Asus x16 card - I'm guessing that since this is a PCIe x8 card, there's a PCIe switch on these cards?

    I am interesting in seeing your test result when you get them, I am very interested in this as well but I cannot find any datasheet about the product which made hold off until I can see more info.
