Summary: Prior to the death it didn't show any signs or symptoms until today it just wouldn't work. No crashes, no blue screens, nada. I just rebooted and suddenly there was no OS to boot. I tried changing cables and and nada. It just wouldn't be recognized by the motherboard. I'm very sad and am considering moving away from SSD.
Summary: This is the 6th or 7th SSD I've purchased an installed. Most in desktops and one into my laptop. I purchased this drive to run my primary OS (Win7).a All other data is stored on different drives, so this crash (after 3 months) wasn't a problem. Took as long as Amazon to ship me a new Samsung SSD to be fixed.
