I own 3 Samsung SSDs and just bought my 4th. I've RMA'ed my Samsung SSD by contacting Samsung USA and had no trouble at all. Only issue was I had to pay for tracked shipping to US.

Before SSDs, I only purchased WD Black drives for ease and length of warranty but only had to use it once. The advance RMA was nice.
Advance rma from where?

Walked into BB for pick up, they refused PM CC, the best they could do is to tag $8.99 shipping, still $6 less at the end of the day.

I just paid $159 for a 256GB Samsung Pro. I'm thinking I still got a decent deal due to the lifespan of the drive. 10Y warranty compared to 5Y for this one...

Does this come with cloning software to copy my existing boot drive?

Thanks. I'll get the Samsung SSD. Does anyone know if you buy an open box from Canada Computers, do you still get Samsung's 3 year warranty on the SSD?
5 years on these drives.

Depends how much data you write to the drive. Both are extremely reliable.

The 850 EVO 250GB is rated for 75TB of writes lifetime.
The 850 Pro 256GB is rated for 150TB of writes lifetime.

Both should easily exceed that.

Dang I got the same drive from Newegg a few weeks ago for $115.99 plus tax. +1 for a great deal. Too bad I have no use for a new SSD at this time.

Spoke to 3 BB agents, PM refusals across the board. CC shows 1 limit per customer, doorcrasher, and while supplies last all in the description, all problems in getting a price match. Nice deal still to be had at CC though.

It's pretty much just the availability of SATA vs. M.2 on motherboards. If you have M.2, there's no reason to ever go back to SATA
Real world, will you notice the difference between m2 and sata?
