Failed Within 3 Months - Saved by Samsung's 5-yr Warranty
21 July 2019
This is my latest report: Samsung's 5-yr Warranty came in very handy and I got a replacement from Samsung's Kolkata Warranty service station.
This is an update after 3 months:
I purchased this product on 17 April 2019. As resentfully noted in my initial review, although the 3rd picture (from the top) on Amazon's relevant web page shows it to be a "product of Korea", what I received was marked "Made in China"! I reluctantly stopped myself from returning it just to avoid the hassle of making another day available for its pickup and, hopefully, replacement. BIG MISTAKE! This NVMe SSD has now failed within three months! The POST reports some sort of electrical malfunction during the process. Despite all my endeavor, including a complete re-installation of the OS (Windows 10 x64, ver.1903), I am unable to boot my PC from this SSD. However my PC boots smoothly and works fine for hours on when booted through my old SATA III Samsung 850 Pro SSD (Made in Korea), but only when the NVMe SSD has already been removed. Whenever the SATA III SSD is in combination with the "Made in China" NVMe SSD under question, either as the boot drive or as a secondary drive, POST fails with the same electrical malfunction report. The PC boots only when the "Made in China" NVMe SSD is removed!
I shall report back after I find out what kind of Warranty is available (now) just after three months!
