Product is fairly underwhelming in the long run 6/30/2018 9:22:47 AM

Pros: The product was fast when I got it
Unlike other products I didn't run into problems setting it up. (For reference I believe it was an OCZ that I had before this and it always had problems with being detected. It might show up then after shutting down/rebooting it would disappear.)

Cons: Product lifespan was short. 5 years later it is completely dead. This was only used for normal consumer usage so I feel that 5 years is very low. All of my HDDs are still going strong, I have multiples in mine and my wife's computer, all are between 5-10 years old.

Overall Review: Given the price and the size go with a better SSD or just go with an HDD if you don't need the speed.

It also seems Samsung has been relying on brand name with relatively low quality products for the price. Keep this in mind when you buy.

Cons: Little pricey but worth it for the space.

Excellent except for ... 6/26/2018 3:36:40 PM

Pros: (My LOW rating is based SOLELY upon 'encryption' issues addressed in 'CONS' below. In all other areas this is a 5-STAR drive . Crypto can be SO important to many users that it alone can be THE critical issue)
Works fine in my Lenovo E545 .. removal and insertion was simple. This is a fast and solid drive, The old drive easily was imaged onto this SSD using samsung's utility (included, along with 'Magician' which is an important program too)

Cons: Serious concerns exist regarding it's encryption system. Drive is unlocked when first installed and used, and i THINK encryption is not activated until one sets a password in laptop's BIOS. These issues are only poorly addressed. One site said there's a difference in results if you set a USER password or an ADMINISTRATOR password .. Nowhere could I find any discussion of issues such as:
1) does Samsung retain any 'secret' password that could be obtained by any interested parties..
2) can one ever CHANGE one's password ..
Big fault is the near total lack of information on these matters .

Overall Review: The drive is said NOT to work via TrueCrypt ... and i believe it!
Until such issues are clearly and openly addressed my advice is NOT to use these SSD's where true security is needed.

Excellent drive. Going strong for 5+ years! 5/20/2018 2:26:04 AM

Pros: Excellent quality! Fast!

This drive has never let me down. I bought this drive on March 31, 2013, and still runs like a champ! No issues whatsoever. It just does what it's supposed to do. Now that I think about kind of depressing how 5+ years have flown by. I probably aged more in 5+ years than this drive has!

I'm about to upgrade to the NVMe 870 Pro. I don't need to upgrade as this drive still runs perfectly fine. Zero issues. But I've got the bug to upgrade to the newer drives in the market. Although for what I do I probably won't notice a difference in the real world most likely. But after 5+ years of usage Samsung deserves my money again! This drive has earned the money I paid for it! It is time to upgrade and give my money to Samsung. Hopefully, the new drive will last 5+ years or so as well.

Cons: None.

Samsung name....not Samsung quaity 1/10/2018 5:13:30 PM

Pros: At the time, great price for the part.

Cons: Build quality. SATA port snapped off completely.
Customer Service...HA! "Service" is used VERY liberally....and badly at that.

Overall Review: I bought this drive based on previous experience with Samsung drives and products. But I just bought a new case for my computer and when I went to do my migration, the SATA data port snapped off when I removed the SATA Data cable. Now I have a 512GB drive with no way to get my data off of, and can't find the RMA link for their SSD's on their website. Tried calling customer service and got lot of runaround when all I wanted was the correct phone number or web address to RMA a product of theirs.

Looks like I will be investing in something OTHER than Samsung now.
