Great read and write speeds, TurboWrite buffer really works! Excellent warranty, to hit 150TBW over the 5 year warranty you'd need to write 82GB of data to the drive every day.
250GB is the minimum i would consider for someone who plays games that read drive data a lot, but its not a big downside.
Almost always on sale, great entry level SSD to host an OS on while you store bulk data on a larger drive. TurboWrite cache speeds up large file writes considerably, and a great manufacturer's warranty should the drive catastrophically fail.

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

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.

Everything! Fast, 100% Reliable and Very Affordable! As a computer tech I Only Use Samsung EVO SSDs; I Have Installed hundreds and Zero Failures!
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.

None that I could find.
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.
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!
