1.0 out of 5 stars Warning! Defective Items are being shipped with July 2018 releases
By Critic on August 23, 2018
I ordered a hard disk and tested through the Crystal Disk benchmark. It was only giving 50% less speeds than specifications. I have a 5 yr old Samsung SSD with same operating system which was reading above 500MB/S for the sequential test. I have run the same test with another Samsung SSD 850 EVO, which also gave above 500MB/s. I made sure that all the parameters are same for different SSDs.
I got a replacement disk from amazon and it turned to be defective as well. I tried one from Best Buy released in the same month and discovered the same. Samsung's Quality testing has gone downhill and they should be ashamed of themselves for selling so many defective units.
Before a person from Samsung replies to my comment, they should also note that I have already contacted Samsung and they said the issue can't be fixed and to return the drive.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warranty not honoured by Samsung
Reviewed in Canada on April 22, 2019
I bought this SSD and after 4 months it has bad sectors. I can not use Samsung Magician to fix it so I resorted to Warranty with Samsung. When I entered all my info (double verified), I'm told my product is past warranty coverage. Yet, at time of sale, the listing said 5-year warranty. Something fishy here. I'm hoping the seller will come to my rescue.
