It's durable, I have more than a year with it and had no issues.

I own a Microsoft Signature Edition of the Dell 7559, which unfortunately has a spec sheet that literally predates the newer DDR4 RAM compatibility and NVMe storage compatibility by less than a year:-15.6-inch 4K UHD touchscreen-Intel Core i7-6700HQ-16GB DDR3 RAM (expanded from the stock 8GB with Crucial 8GB DDR3 kit available on here)-GeForce GTX 960M (4GB)and a super slow stock 1TB SSHD hybrid drive, but that wasn't really what made this purchase a necessity.This particular computer has an M.2 slot for a dual drive set up, and it has the ability to do a Hackintosh setup (if you have the time for that, which I did).

I won't really go into installation details, but I can say that for the money at the time, this SSD worked like a dream.

Microsoft are doing away with Windows 7 which has been reliable software for my system.

So came back looking for this SSD in larger capacity to clone my stem on ssd and then install the dreaded 10 software but the ssd is no longer sold here on Amazon ... they have the 1tb version which is analogous to buying an iron box... chipsets get really warm.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I recommend this internal solid state drive based on its brand popularity. Let's go over the reasons why buying this internal solid state drive now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Samsung is one of the best selling, well known internal solid state drive brand!

Samsung is one of the best selling brands among other internal solid state drive brands. I found some YouTube videos that talk about this product, which means this is a widely known product/brand. I have attached the videos above and links in the additional research section down below, so don't forget to watch and read those!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

2. This internal solid state drive has positive reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This internal solid state drive has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this internal solid state drive more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

3. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $286.27 $90.00

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has gone up, resulting in a 0.82% price increase.

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this internal solid state drive was $286.27, and the lowest price point was $90.00. The current price isn't close to either the highest or the lowest price point, so it's a fairly reasonable time to make this purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, the price tends to stay more or less the same. Not a lot of price movement is expected, but the price could still move in either direction by a smidge.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $224.25 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

4. Manufacturer has generally positive reviews on their other products

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. The manufacturer of this product, Samsung (SAMSUNG), has generally positive reviews on the internet. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, and if you like this product, I'd go with this product!

5. There are other options you might want to check out

image/svg+xml Samsung Other similar brands: Crucial Transcend PNY ADATA

I found 5 brands that have similar products like this one: Crucial, the same brand as this product, Transcend, PNY, and ADATA. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from Transcend. If you're looking for a internal solid state drive with best reviews, a product from the same brand as this product gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from the same brand as this product I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
