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. Seagate handles the warranty on all other drives. There direct number is (201) 935-0670.
Summary: I have had this drive for about a month with my OS and Photoshop Lightroom running on it. Today when I got back and turned on my computer, I got a blue screen memory dump. Now the drive is not recognizable and my OS is gone. Good thing I still have my old trusty 10,000rpm velociraptor that still has my old install on it!
