4 out of 5 eggsGreat SSD

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO 2.5" 512GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7KE512BW

Pros: I'm using this driver with a WD TV player and it has been working well and the transfer speeds are fast.

Cons: When I called into register this drive with SamSung the girl on the phone told me that if something went wrong with it I need to take it back to where I got it from and I asked her you know it has a 10 year warranty on it and if it fails 9 years and 11 1/2 months before the warranty is up do you really think they going to give me a replacement SSD,so she talks to her supervisor and she is clueless as well.

It's pretty sad when all they needed was to tell me to register it online and that it can't be done over the phone.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased a few Sandisk Extreme SSD's as well and I like them better for the reason they don't hassle about not having a clue about how to register their product,the SamSung's are a good SSD with a 10 year warranty but I'm going to stick with Sandisk as I find their customer support to be much better.

2 out of 5 eggs3 failures in two weeks installed in Supermicro raid

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO 2.5" 512GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7KE512BW

Pros: - Super fast, wonderful when not failing. Price is reasonable.

Cons: We currently have 9 of these Samsung 850 Pro 512 GB drives in a Raid 6 on a Supermicro SSG-2028R-E1CR24H server. The OS is VMWare ESXi v6, hosting 2 Ubuntu servers and 4 windows servers.

We had 2 hot spares prior to when the failures started. A little over 2 weeks ago, one of the drives failed, and the raid rebuilt immediately using the hot spare. We pulled the drive and shipped it to Samsung for replacement. Last week another drive failed and the raid rebuilt using the remaining hot spare. Today I discovered we have another failure, and now we no longer have an optimal Raid 6. We are running on a degraded raid array, and I overnighted another drive to get the raid back to optimal ASAP. This is a very important server, and 50 employees will not be able to work if this thing goes down. I am very stressed about this.

I called Samsung customer support today and told them I want to open a ticket. The Samsung rep told me he sees the warrantee history of our recent drive replacements. That room stays below 70 degrees F (21 Celsius) all the time, so either Samsung is shipping defective drives or this server is eating drives.

I am not a hardware guy - I specialize in software. I prefer to simply buy good drives, throw them in the server, and then expect them to work. This has not been fun. I am currently very stressed that we could lose the raid. My plan if that happens is to create a smaller raid from the remaining good drives and then restore from backup.

Other Thoughts: I am hopeful Samsung will offer some insight, and I am even more hopeful the replacement drive arrives and rebuilds before we have another failure. I wonder if updating the raid card firmware could help prevent failures.

4 out of 5 eggsQuick and easy

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO 2.5" 512GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7KE512BW

Pros: Works as intended. Speeds are phenomenal... I had purchased an SSD from Samsung when SSD's were brand new, and it was awful. Couldn't ever get the firmware updated, many programs simply would not install or update on the drive, and often had times of corrupted data pop up for me. But I checked all the reviews for their new ones and decided I would give it another try. I was not disappointed.

Cons: Not exactly a con, but if you don't have a case that can properly fit an SSD you might have issues getting it properly secured in your case. I wish it would have at least came with the miniature screws to place into a drive slot for my case :x had to bum some off a friend.

Other Thoughts: I don't particularly recommend the software that comes with it. There really is no need for it.

4 out of 5 eggsBe careful when ordering this drive.

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO 2.5" 512GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7KE512BW

Pros: Fast delivery

Cons: You also need the programming cable SATA to USB if you plan to replace your HDD in a laptop. Samsung sells a similar product with the cable!

5 out of 5 eggsFastest drive I've ever used!

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO 2.5" 512GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7KE512BW

Pros: Boots up and accesses date BLAZINGLY fast.

Cons: The bits where the SATA connectors are are so narrow it is hard to know if you've made a secure connection until you try to boot. That's nitpicky, because this is really a perfect drive build.

Other Thoughts: I've never seen Maya or Photoshop boot up so fast in my life! These Solid State drives are quite a leap from a traditional HDD. I'm planning on a M.2 drive for a second boot drive (Linux for Maya and as a rendering OS for speed) and will certainly choose Samsung for that drive as well.
