This is great but I would have loved if it took 2 M.2 cards over the PCIe lanes instead of one going over SATA. I may have to pick one up for my Gigabyte Z77 board

Also would It kill them to make the PCI bracket black. The default silver is so dated.

Eh, just take off the bracket. It's not like it needs to be there. Those are just there to support the weight.

I guess they did not add extra lanes for 2 M2 devices because they will need a PLX switch chip for that. for each drive to be bootable. this would make the card $100 ... and not $17

Would a Samsung M.2 drive work on an older AM2+/AM3 system?
Yea and would actually be a good use for it since you can't take advantage of 6 G/s speeds that a SATA SSD would offer current PC's. Just make sure you're using this adapter with a M.2 key M SSD, though
