Over 100 of these Drives installed 0 issues

Strengths of the product

I have put over 100 of these drives into Dell workstations in the past two years and not a single failure on a single system. Performance is great with 0 DOA and 0 issues. The data migration software from Samsung works quickly to transfer data off the old drive.

Weaknesses of the product

None... Especially when its on sale...

Additional Comments

Best SSD for the price and only one I trust on my builds. If you want a little extra speed and have a decent amount of installed memory Samsung Magician can be used to enable Rapid Mode which caches to ram for an extra speed boost. The review on here from Stephen in Winnipeg should be pulled as he is clearly the issue not the drive lol

Additional Comments

I have built a lot of computers. I used platter drives until SSD prices dropped. That being said, I have had more platter drives fail then I have ever had a ssd fail. As to the computer seeing the drive and formatting it was never a problem. Never, ever waste your time on cheaper drives, I always use Samsung or Kingston SSDs.

Excellent SSDs!

Additional Comments

Note to the gentleman who could not clone his original drive. First and foremost, I have tried cloning various brands of SSDs and there are always issues. I suspect that Samsung's Cloning software saw something on your original drive that it did not like. For the past 6 years, I use Samsung EVO SSDs religiously and have had ZERO FAILURES! When you clone a drive, it clones EVERYTHING . . . BOTH GOOD AND BAD including Malware and Viruses. Why would anyone want to clone a drive with bad software on it? I stopped cloning drives years ago. I ALWAYS do a fresh install of the latest Windows 10 OS and all needed software. This is the only guaranteed way of knowing 100% that everything is right and current. Yes, it takes longer but I would sooner do it right the first time than having to do it twice. :) Just my two cents.

This product is garbage!

Strengths of the product

None that I could find.

Weaknesses of the product

I bought this one (250GB SSD) and the 1TB 860 series SSD, to upgrade my existing Intel 120GB SSD and 1TB SSHD Gaming drive After 6 hours of trying multiple cloning software and pulling out what remaining hair I have on my head I gave up. Device Manager detected the drives, but I could not initialise them or format them. I took them both back the following day for a refund.

Additional Comments

I bought myself an Intel 512GB SSD, used their cloning software and was done in 10 minutes. No hassles no pulling of hair nothing. I will NEVER buy a Samsung SSD ever again. Now if only I could find a 1TB or 2TB Intel SSD I'd be ecstatic, But Memory Express doesn't carry them. Stay away from SAMSUNG SSD's, they have known issues of not being able to be cloned with their own software!
