Dead at 3 years 1 months

Thomas W., Newegg
3 December 2014
  • Summary: Showed no signs of failure, just completely died one day. Data recovery is impossible because it will not boot at all and is unseen. Lesson learned if you are going to use ssd drives, back them up often.
  • Pros: Worked great for 3 years.
  • Cons: Died (bricked) 1 month past warranty.

  • Summary: Love this SDD. It makes everything faster, quieter, and cooler to run. I did not think it would bake that much of a difference, but it does.

bad in 1 year

George H., Newegg
8 March 2013
  • Summary: I went back to a 3 disk raid 5 array on non solid state.
  • Pros: Pretty fast while it lasted. I dont have the benchmarks handy any longer (they were saved on the drive - oh the irony).
  • Cons: Crapped out after 1 year. Bios no longer recognizes a bootable drive. Tried reinstalling windows and it doesnt recognize any attached drives.

Failed after 21 months

Amazon Customer "Whistling Rabbit", Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: This drive is advertised with a 3 year warranty. The MTBF is estimated at 15 years. Apparently this is greatly inflated. Some of these drive are DOA. Mine lasted 21 months before failing. While it worked it was great. Samsung still handles the warranty on SSD drives.

Excellent drive

MShoukry, Amazon

  • Summary: This is an excellent SSD, I replaced the HDD of my Toshiba 630 laptop. I'm using windows 7 and was board whenever I need to do a start up for the system or reboot. With this SSD the reboot is extremely fast and launching application as well.
