Samsung 512GB SSD 2.5-inch 7mm SATA III 11/14/2018 8:37:35 AM

Pros: I do general PC repairs and upgrades on the side and recently one of my customers gave me an older HP 15-f272WM 4-core laptop to be fixed and upgraded. After waiting more than 2 months to be paid (and after numerous attempts to contact him - ALL OF WHICH FAILED), I finally kept and erased the laptop for own use.

I then decided to upgrade the memory from 4 to 8 Meg and also upgrade the old mechanical 500 Meg HD to a 500 Meg SSD. So I bought this SSD from Newegg for roughly $80.00 (which was sold by goHardDrive - with whom I believe I have dealt with before). The memory upgrade went without a hitch and I ordered the SSD on 11/08/2018 and it got here on 11/13/2018 (which is MUCH LONGER than a normal NewEgg purchase - but I'll let that pass... For now...)

The SSD upgrade went off fairly well (other than the fact that I had to take apart the laptop just to get at the old HD). The new SSD was recognized right off the bat. This was AFTER I CLONED THE OLD HD TO THE NEW SSD which took roughly 1/2 an hour to do. After re-installing the NEW SSD it booted right up without a hitch...

Now this SSD has made a world of difference in this laptop, it's like "NIGHT AND DAY" now. The laptop has gone from about 2-3 minutes booting time down to about 40-50 seconds booting time. I will definitely not complain about that. Not only that, but ALL of my programs now load in MUSH FASTER then before. I'm just waiting to see how fast my Video Encoding now goes on this system. I can't wait to see how fast it is. I have to say I'm VERY impressed with it so far...

Now I honestly would have preferred to have gotten either a 1 or a 2 (or even a 4 TB) SSD but the price for them was prohibitive. I just couldn't afford it, so I'll make do with the 500 Meg SSD for now. Maybe I'll hit the lottery some day and can afford it then. (Here's hoping... Wish me luck...)

Cons: Now do I have any CONS??? YES I DO, and they're mostly with NewEgg. The BANNER ADD for this item was as follows:

"Samsung 512GB SSD 2.5-inch 7mm SATA III TLC (6.0Gb/s) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CM871a (MZ-7TN5120) - 5 Years Warranty"

You noticed the 5 Years Warranty part??? Well this is wrong... When I checked the WARRANTY & RETURNS TAB it states that this product has a:

Limited Warranty period (parts): 3 years AND
Limited Warranty period (labor): 3 years

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE 5 YEARS WARRANTY??? OR WHO HONORS IT??? YOU (NewEgg OR goHardDrive)???

This is FALSE ADVERTISING - plain and simple...

NOW HERE'S MY GRIPE NEWEGG:

Don't you people (at NewEgg) have a "PROOF READER" to check ALL OF YOUR ADDS BEFORE YOU POST THEM??? This has happened numerous times before as both myself and others can attest to... I know this for a fact, as I have seen numerous other people complain about this very thing before... This has to stop...

If you don't have a "PROOF READER", than maybe you should consider "Breaking The Piggy Bank" and hiring one. Just make sure you vet him/her BEFORE you hire them...

Overall Review: Ok... Now that I've gotten my RANT against NewEgg out of my system I'll give you my "OTHER THOUGHTS" about this purchase...

FIRST OFF:

I'll be VERY SURPRISED if NewEgg posts this review as it is definitely NOT a favorable review of NewEgg. But I believe in telling the truth and I've done so here. So we'll see what happens AND how honest NewEgg really is...

NOW:

Would I purchase this (or OTHER) products from goHardDrive in the future??? YES I would (BUT with the following caveat)... I would remember that their service was much slower than a "NORMAL" NewEgg purchase in their delivery speed.

Would I recommend goHardDrive to other customers to make their purchases from??? YES I would (again with the following caveat)... I would tell them that their service was much slower than a NORMAL NewEgg purchase in their delivery speed. So that if they had a "TIME SENSITIVE" purchase to make, they might be better off buying from someplace else.

FINALLY:

Why did I give this item a 3-EGG Rating???

Well it's because of NewEgg's Advertising Mistakes. I have to say that I'm overly impressed with the SSD, BUT I'm also tired of seeing these deceptive practices repeated again and again on NewEgg's site...

This has to be resolved, one way or another...

I hope this helps...

Take care everyone...
