    I have been using a Samsung SSD 840 PRO for almost five years with no problems. My next purchase will probably be again a Samsung, even though they are more expensive. As far as I know they are the only ones with a warranty of 5 or 10 years. What SSD are you using and you would recommend?

    I've never used anything but Samsung, never had a problem with Samsung but had problems with other brands (I don't remember which brand it was).

    I have used Samsung (2) and Crucial. My Samsung in my laptop died but Samsung quickly replaced it since they could not repair it.

    Now that you write it I think it was Crucial I had major problems with, not buying from this brand again!

    Have not had one lick of trouble from the Crucial, and it's 6 years old.

    It was a low end drive with ridiculous shitty controller built in.

    I have three Samsung EVOs and no problems with any of them. Two in my PCs and one in my laptop.
    But with any SSD, check with the motherboard manufacturer for compatibility.

    Use those 2 also. And Kingston upon a time, though not any more - we get better bulk deals w the other 2.

    I'd probably buy a Samsung drive if I needed another SSD now. SSD prices have decreased dramatically. Today the 480 GB PNY drive that I bought early last year for $120 (inexpensive at the time) is on sale for $50 at Amazon. It has a 3-year warranty.

    I bought the less expensive PNY SSD because instead of a Samsung SSD because wasn't sure if an SSD was really worth the extra cost. I delayed using the SSD due to a problem with the PC that cropped up at about the same time I bought the SSD. (Replacing the PSU and SATA cables seem to have fixed it.) I just installed the PNY SSD a couple of weeks ago. So far, all is well and I like the faster load time for what is now my HTPC.

    Samsung Magician reports 5,125 Read and 5,375 Write for Sequential (MB/s) and 207,035 Read and 121,100 Write for Random (IOPS). How good are these benchmark results?

    Samsungs here too...sounds like a strong verdict for them in most post so far

  13. I'm using Samsung 860 EVO, no issues on all three of my computers, Dell Vostro, Toshiba laptop, Lenovo laptop. I suspect other brands have increased quality over time but, I have no experience with them.
    It's not important the problem be solved, only that the blame for the mistake is assigned correctly

    Nope.
    Watch Linus Tech Tips on Youtube, about SSD drives.
