    Greased lighting fast and comes with a 5 year warranty. Enough said.

    Great slightly older SSD. Can find folks selling these used from Lenovo laptops for around $40 on Craigslist.

    Apart from losing it's firmware on me a while back (which necessitated a mailing to Samsung to have it reinstated) it is a great SSD.

    Samsung is king for SSDs. Have bought 3 so far. Fast and dependable. 6 stars.

    Supafast... Bought back in 2013 which is why the high price. Since then I've only written 1.1TB lol at this rate it will last even after I die.

    Great until I realized it was slowing my overall performance sometimes. SS makes mean product. Value for many of their products is top notch. Great SSD for SATA 3. The newer SSDs with express and NVM blow it out of the water though. Really wish I could upgrade all my sub-components, but it is not cost-effective for these manufacturers to make fully modular products. Once core sub-components would be replaced it is peanuts to replace the rest, so why not just buy new components right?

    from completed build Christmas Build...at last!

    My first SSD ever. After moving from a standard HDD to this, you just can't go back. I've had it for about 2 years. No issues, works at advertised speeds, boots up my PC in a few seconds.

    Very fast SSD that can boot into Windows within seconds of starting the computer. It also opens programs faster than my HDDs.
