Lost Drive in RMA!

Summary: So now I have no drive, it is apparently sitting in an empty building where everyone else sends their RMA drives. There must be a pile of them there because that's where the Samsung RMA system tells everyone to send their drives and Samsung's only point of contact, a third-party repair vendor, won't give me the contact information for anyone actually as Samsung. Incredible!
Cons: 500GB Drive failed after a few months. No big deal, tech breaks. Good thing I have a 3 year warranty. I filled out the Samsung online RMA request and sent the drive into a South Carolina address specified in the RMA ticket. Shipping tracking confirmed delivery at the address. More than 2 weeks after the drive was delivered, I receive an automated email from Samsung stating that they never received my drive. I call Samsung support. They say "oh, sorry, the online RMA p...
Summary: It comes with a cloning program. The program tells you need a usb to sata cable to clone your files. The problem is the ssd doesn't come with one, how dumb is that. I had to order a cable separately to use the software. Once I did clone my HD to ssd, the ssd would not boot. When I plugged in my old hard drive it was corrupted and would not boot either. The software wiped both my drives! Lost all my data and had to wipe both drives.
Summary: ordered two of these drives for $79 each. tried installing windows 7 on the first drive I opened and the install crashed half way through,error code 0x8007045d appeared. I googled this error code to find out its a defective read or write device.. do not purchace I am returning both of them and trying another brand.
Excerpt: SSD's for a while for me seemed like a overkill item. Why pay all the money for faster boot times. I have been debating buying an SSD for awhile now and with the new release of the Samsung 840 EVO series I thought I would make the investment and pick one up for my operating system and WOW.
