    Got the adapter, drive was unformatted, benchmarks look as expected. Tested with my workload, but it looks like I can't hit high enough queue depths to really take advantage of it. Now trying to convince myself of other uses for it (maybe a good time to get into virtualization).

    By the way, with HP-branded drives it has been mentioned here several times that you can't get full SMART info (without HP hardware?), and some have wondered how to see total bytes written. The Intel SSD Data Center Tool has a "performance" reporting option (isdct show -performance) that includes DataUnitsWritten, described in the manual as:

    "(NVMe Devices only). The number of 512 byte data units the host has written to the device. Value is reported in units of 1000 (1 = 1000 units of 512 bytes)."

    Maybe, this is a way to get a partial substitute for missing HP SMART info.

    Also, I benchmarked with both the native Windows 10 Pro NVME driver and the Intel one and there was very little difference.

    [EDIT: DataUnitsWritten is reported as 1000 units of 512 bytes, not units of 512 bytes. Quoted from the manual.]

    Was the drive new when you got it?

    It arrived unformatted in a sealed anti-static bag with desiccant, no external signs of wear. Didn't see anything in the Intel SSD Data Center Tool info to indicate prior usage, but I only checked after I formatted it and tested a bit.

    I have no experience with HP or Intel warranties, so I don't know if this is strange. On the HP site, a serial number is requested. When I enter the ISN on the drive, I get this message: "This product cannot be identified by serial number alone. Please enter a product number below." Now, which of the other numbers is the product number? If I enter the HP Model, I get: "This product number is not associated with the serial number provided. Please review your records and make any necessary edits or check the box to remove this item." If I enter the HP P/N, I get: "The information you provided does not match our records. Please review your entry again and make any necessary edits or contact HPE for more assistance." Am I entering the wrong numbers?

    isdct reports the ISN as the serial number, which is what I was using.

    Also, for what it's worth, the firmware as reported by isdct is 4IFDHPK2.

    I was told it might work with a HP maintenance CD in a non HP server but never got my hands on one to try it out;)

    And
    Intel DC P3700 400GB NVMe SSD U.2 2.5" Form Factor HP P/N 764891-001 MO0400KEFHN

    From a helpful Ebay seller;)


    Edit2: Its actually listed on the drive if I check the pics of the other seller. Same drive as yours btw, just a tad more expensive.

    LOL read on the other pages @zeynel, he cancelled my order due to no qty left from shipping your guys and his friend selling them local. I asked for serial #s / validation they were not stolen, etc, he stalled, never provided it then cancelled and told me there were none left.

    thus I'm bitter and sad :( hahah

    oh well now I best get a optane deal ;) LOL!!

    Don't be jealous, bitter, sad, etc. I cannot make good use of mine (workload queues aren't deep enough to see a big performance increase, unfortunately), so I will sell it and use an S3700 instead. Will list tomorrow in the For Sale section (with Funtin adapter).
