I own a (+3 years old) Supermicro server with 4 SAS HDD and an NVMe SSD (Samsung PM981 M.2 512 Go PCI Express 3.0 NVMe). My motherboard is a X11SPM-F. I have absolutely no problem with the NVMe SSD.
As I have only one of them, I've choose not to use it as boot. I'm using part of it as a log device for the SAS RAIDZ pool and the rest of it as a standalone pool for special use cases.
Works really great.

	We are in the process of buying new hardware for use with FreeBSD and ZFS. We are planning whether to buy M2 NVME disks or just SATA SSD disks (probably Samsung PM* ones). How is you experience with them?. Do you recommend one over the another?. Is perhaps better support from some of them from a specificic version to newer?. Or do they perhaps work better with some specific disk controller?.
