Pros: Arrived fast. Light, Looks great. Very fast, when it decides to work

Cons: Standard Return Policy
Return for refund within: 30 days
Return for replacement within: 30 days
It begins having issues 36 days after purchase. SIX DAYS after the return policy it starts to have issues.

Where to start. Bought on 12/1/2014 It slows the entire pc down with freeze after freeze.

Samsung has released a restoration tool that is "supposed" to fix an issue with the firmware, but does not fix anything.

There seems to be 2 different batches of this drive. The ones sold with the messed up firmware & the ones with the updated firmware.

I have done a clean install 5x now*and now I wore my Windows 7 Disc out, for installing it too many times*Thanks Samsung/Newegg for that!*

Every 20 minutes or so, the entire pc will freeze up, for anywhere as quick as 2 seconds to as long as 30 seconds.

I am about to go back to my Sata, as it may be slightly slower, but works without any issues.

Other Thoughts: Google has documented complaints on this drive & tons of problems.

The newer version of this drive is supposed to work better. Guess Newegg got stuck with the bad drives, no wonder they were so cheap on December 1st!

NVIDIA Pick 1 of 3 GAMES: Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4 and The Crew (Up to $59.99 Retail Value)

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Supposed to be a Good game
Came with the GTX 980 I bought

Cons: Everything. I cant play it because UPlay wont give me access.

Game is on steam already, but youtube requires you play on Uplay, so you dont get to enjoy steam like you do for your other games.

Then they tell me I can not play until 12/31/2014 then tell me it was a bug and I can play at release. Well, that was a lie. I cant play. Game wont unlock.

Other Thoughts: Avoid getting any hardware just for the game. UPlay is a horrible company with very poor customer service.
