Summary: I like the drive just horrible when it dies, You lose everything, I couldn't recover the drive at all. The customer service has been pleasant, hopefully I'll get the replacement quickly without any issues with the new drive.
Pros: Great drive while it lasted, no hard use, just operating system use, well maintained system temps. good drive, I must say The customer service has so far been exponential, it was a little troublesome to find how to get a hold of someone you have to just get the number and call them. I have made c...
Cons: Died 18 months in, the reason I bought this was for the warranty, and I heard some good things about it.
Cons: I purchased the product in December 2013, and it was dead in November 2014. I used it very carefully without any alteration and violation. It said that the product warranty policy for Samsung 840 pro is 5 years. However, I could not find a way to request RMA in the official website and I wrote an...
Summary: If one can get these while on promo, do so! Yes, the 850 Pro has a 10 year warranty, but the 840 Pro is proven, it's the King of SSD's & yet to be beaten over the long run. Though the 128GB models are a bit slower, it's plenty for most who aren't dual booting or has a ton of software installed (mine...
Pros: Everything, this is an exceptionally great SSD that I found on promo for $90. Faster than the 120GB 840 EVO, though not by much. 5 Year warranty. Plenty of online documentation with instructions for everything. This SSD ROCKS! The 840 Pro is the King of SSD's, yet to be beaten.
Cons: Didn't have the cash to purchase the limit of 2 when on promo.
Works great while it's lasts... Died after 18months

Summary: Waste of money HDD's are better. Save the money.
Pros: Okay it's a good drive while it lasts. Good speed faster boot times and all that.
Cons: Totally unreliable. If you want to blow some money for a fast drive knock yourself out. Died after 18 months. Not even using its full 6gb transfer rate. Well maintained and cool running. If you want to reformat your system when it dies fly at your own risk.
Summary: My current case(Lian Li) did not have 2.5" bays, so I installed it into a 3.5" with a single screw and let it float. Not a functional issue, but I wouldn't say it's what the manufacturer intended either. Wish they included 3.5-2.5 kits with it, but wouldn't consider it a con.
Pros: -Fast boot drive for CentOS 7.0 -Good read/write times -Enough space for the OS and decent number of VM's on its own. If you add a second drive and split your VMs' storage use to utilize the SSD for the OS drives, one could get the better of both worlds.
