1 out of 5 eggsBeware of RAID on these drives

Pros: Good ratings and speed

Cons: Had major problems getting these drives to work on a MSI A75MA-G55 motherboard when using RAID. They work fine as long as you are not using the RAID function. Tried MSI SB700, SB800 & SB900 series drivers. Did all firmware updates on drives & MB's. Even did a Beta BIOS update on the MSI board but no luck. The NewEgg site states these are compatible with RAID but they won't work with this configuration. We replaced both SSD drives with the Samsung 830 SSD drives & they worked great the first try. MSI & Samsung have been made aware of the problem. Hopefully they fix the problem.

1 out of 5 eggsRuined My Christmas

Pros: don't know. it's an SSD, so it must have some resale value on craigslist or something

Cons: This SSD "includes" Norton Ghost to copy the existing HDD OS to the SSD. The included instructions detail how to download, install and use it. I tried to follow the instructions for a drive I gave my son for Christmas to help his PC get a bit of a speed boost. There is no valid license key included anywhere in the packaging. We can't get the Norton Ghost software license to work and we can't get the OS or anything else to copy from the HDD to the SSD. This is worthless to us in this state.

Other Thoughts: unless you intend to install an OS from scratch, don't bother

1 out of 5 eggsStarted Dying after 6 months

Pros: Fastest thing I've ever seen.

Cons: Took until now to become fully unusable. Reloaded several times with the last load lasting less than a day before it crashed again.

Other Thoughts: Contacted a Samsung Total Tech Solutions, Inc.
Samsung Factory Service – SSD & Memory Department and all they're willing to do under the warranty is replace this drive with a recertified drive. I find that completely unacceptable.

1 out of 5 eggsShould know better

Pros: None so far.

Cons: When I connected it to my SATA/IDE to USB 2 Adapter it caused it to blow-up the power supply for the adapter. Tried to install after the thirty day return policy. Now I have to deal with Samsung.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to install electronic devices in the thirty days period.

1 out of 5 eggsgarbage

Pros: NOTHING

Cons: everything. S/N on the back comes back invalid product made in 1993 WOW since when was the SSD made in 93 or even invented lol. next samsung doesn't even show its model number in the registration part of their web site. needless to say MY DRIVE IS DEAD and samsung says they dont have a valid s/n so won't replace it at all even though it has a 36 month warranty on it and was purchased 1/28/13 from newegg.

Other Thoughts: I owe a computer store and have for over 15 years now I am telling everyone to stay away from samsung

1 out of 5 eggsBAD DRIVE BAD SUPPORT

Pros: NONE - would give zero eggs if i could

Cons: Bought in Feb 2013 and just went to install now 1 Aug 13. Must be DOA since system does not see drive but not sure since it is my first SSD. Installed Data Migration Software (DMS). DMS ask to update and I updated. Ran DMS and it just hung saying "Loading". Used Newegg product page link and got blank page. Went to Samsung website and IE crashed several times. Got chat and called number they gave but offices are closed. Will try sending in drive for warranty swap. Wasting a lot of time and really sorry i bought this SSD. What I learned: try item ASAP so can swap via Newegg instead of poor support vendor like Samsung.

1 out of 5 eggsSamsung SSD = Super Speedy Death

Pros: Fast boots while it lasted.

Cons: Formatted only once during original installation of windows 7. Lasted less than 8 months. Will no longer initialize. This drive is Dead, Dead, Dead!
...Gave this an "egg" because it was required to post a comment. If I could have given it a -5 "eggs" I would have. Honestly Samsung, I still have 3 of your PATA drives from 2002 that are still fully functioning! What happened to your Quality Control?!

1 out of 5 eggsCan't return for a refund - Beware!

Pros: Drive is fast, stable, and highly recommended.

Cons: None for the drive, but Newegg wouldn't allow me to change my mind and ask for a refund on this item. I am used to being able to return an item if I notify them within the first week that I don't want the item. This item has a no refund policy. It only allows you to exchange the samsung drive within the first 30 days. The market for ssd drives is hot and drives frequently go on sale online. This drive was cheaper elsewhere and I wanted to return it for a refund.

Other Thoughts: Be aware of the no refund policy for this ssd drive.
