Pros: Even though they are not on the list, I bought these for my Dell Inspiron 7548 (i5-5200U). They pass the DELL dram test, I have not done a stress test. Several weeks in I have not had any issues.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Not buying Dell ever again..... for other reasons.

Decent product, bad company

SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 32 layer 3D V-NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E500B/AM
SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 32 layer 3D V-NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E500B/AM

Pros: It works as it is supposed to, the hardware that is. Would probably work just fine on a NEW build.

Cons: I have NO issues with Newegg I luv them, Samsung and Dell are a different story. Bought the SSD to upgrade my Dell laptop. Tried to use the Samsung data migration software and failed. Samsung's included written instructions stopped 80% of the way through the process. The dms failed to deal with UEFI secure boot (standard setting on prepackaged PCs). Acronis clone software wouldn't even try. Dell even sells the very same said Samsung SSD. SS said I needed to contact Dell to deal with SS software..... Dell said get out your credit card. So SS software can not handle a mainstream PC makers product and Dell won't answer any questions without $. If either vendor even had a web page that deals with the issue (not uncommon) and potential workarounds I would be happy, but no. Samsung, please stop advertising product aspects that are not supported.

Overall Review: Both Dell and Samsung support are BAD. Both support personnel seem to me more worried about clearing requests than solving customer issues. Received canned answers from both. Samsung answer was sorry, you need to contact Dell (on the positive side they answered in hours). Dell's answer was, on your 7 month old laptop, you need to call us for a price..... I swore a decade ago I would never buy Dell again but a big box had what seemed like a good buy, I wish I had a time machine, no more Dell for me. Samsung, products are good out of the box, after that, one does not exist. My galaxy tab is missing so many Android security patches I have lost count. Just an FYI for AMD users, Samsung SSD firmware update does not work on AMD chipsets, that is unless you downgrade to generic msft drivers. I am in the industry, my customers call me for help on their PCs even though I neither sold nor support them. Building desktops or servers from scratch is a no brainer for our company. Dealing with non-white box units is a growing pain. It all comes down to support and proprietary software. I have yet to have a positive experience with Dell concerning my laptop, but this is not the forum for that. Samsung support, well there isn't any.....

Decent product, after more than 3 months still waiting rebate.

Pros: With an HDMI v4 cable, bluray finally works, funny my bluray player in my AV system works with a HDMI 1.3 v2 cable. I have not tried the rest of the features, yet.

Cons: That being said, bluray still does on work via VGA or DVI-D. They only way I figured this cable issue out was through trial and error, no help files available and web site is so messed up their internal links aren't even correct.

Overall Review: Their help system and website are still a waste of time. Funny how a box can be ordered and printed in English, but English help file is not available.

Not Good

Pros: It arrived

Cons: Took it out of the plastic bag, tried multiple devices, none worked. Even rebooted PC just in case, still no joy.

Overall Review: Cost more to RMA than it is worth.

Pros: Hope it works....

Cons: No cons yet waiting on oops, I mean UPS, just needed to rant

Overall Review: Package was entered into the UPS system on 11/9, shipped from Florida to Dallas, Tx. UPS reports that it was handed off to the post office today (11/20), maybe I will get it by Xmas.......

Nothing special, not a gamer, just migrating to screens with DP ports for new video cards. Originally had 1 dead pixel on one of the pair of screens but it has gone away.
