SAMSUNG 850 PRO 2.5

1 out of 5 eggs Failed After 1 year despite 10 Year Warranty - SAMSUNG RMA Process Horrible 02/22/2017

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 PRO 2.5" 256GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7KE256BW

Pros: Easy to install and configure. Worked well for 1 year. NEWEGG service excellent as always.

Cons: This drive failed after 1 year of normal use as a mirrored operating system drive. Contacted SAMSUNG for RMA; turns out the 10 Year Warranty is only for a repair or replacement with a refurbished drive at their option. Thankfully server was configured as fully redundant.

Samsung's RMA process is a joke; they will email you a word document (not an online form) with questions for you to answer and return with documentation of original invoice, sys config, etc. Then you'll have to pack it up and return to them (as if you didn't waste enough time troubleshooting the problem already, not to mention server down-time) all so you can wait 7 days (plus 2-way shipping time) for them to fix or replace it.

Complete waste of time, energy and customer good will for a $135 drive they should just have replaced with a new drive immediately to compensate for the massive inconvenience.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend to a friend

EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P4-3656-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works with the older motherboard (EVGA 122-CK-NF-68-A1) on the family computer (dated, but still decent enough for most stuff).

Install was effortless

It's EVGA

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Had to replace the existing EVGA GeForce 8800 GT (which was still working perfectly) to enable playing newer games requiring Direct X 11. New card plays Crysis 3 no problem, but obviously can't crank settings due to limitations of the rest of this older system.

I have the 2gb version of this card in a more recent build with Z77 board, ivy bridge i5 3570k, etc and it takes everything I've thrown at it..

ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Was very easy to install in my first build. Started right up. Liked the way the CPU cover is designed to pop off as you close the lever. BIOS was super easy to deal with. No problem with loading drivers, etc. Included software is kinda cool, but a little clunky and weird. Haven't played with it that much yet, but automatic OC function seems to work perfectly. Don't think I've scratched the surface yet of all this board can do...looks like a lot of upside potential is built in.

Cons: Aluminum I/O shield is almost foil thin and has annoying prongs that make the board a bit hard to insert. Board is short and has only six mounting holes so it hangs over the middle row of MB stand-offs about 2 inches...not a big deal except that the power connector is on the overhanging portion so you need to be careful to support the board while connecting power. PCI-Ex slot seemed slightly crooked versus the case mount, but that seems more likely to be a case construction issue...went right in anyway with just a little torque and works perfectly.

Other Thoughts: Was initially a little disappointed that this board only has 2 SATA III connections, but I knew that going in. The price of this board was low enough that I couldn't justify upgrading to one of the fancier boards. Poking around the Newegg site I found I can add a PCI-Express card with additional internal SATA III ports, so that's a nice option for future expansion to a very nice and reasonably priced basic MB
