Need input on Samsung 16GB SSD 2.5" Disk Hard Drive MMBRE16G5MSP-0V​​AD1 OVAD

A well rated eBay seller has this 2009 vintage 16GB Samsung SSD for $18.99 shipped. The problem is I know nothing about this generation of Samsung SSDs. Search hasn't been much help either, the internet hardly admits they exist (other than link aggregators).

These are apparently as-new pulls from some kind of mini-notebook.
The sellers description gives little guidance. Link [ebay.com]

A drive that freezes or stutters or is unreliable wouldn't be much use at any price. Anyone have any experience with these?

You couldn't give those away for free. Refurb might be one thing since those were probably returns with little to no use, but these are full out used and an older gen drive. So I wouldn't give these things 6 months before they crap out on you.

I agree with Brbubba. I just bought an 80gb Intel 320 SSD for $50 after rebate and newegg coupon. This is a brand new drive that is much faster, more reliable, etc. Pass on the Samsung, spend a little more to jump on the SSD bandwagon and be much happier. 16gb is so small too. it would be hard to even fit windows 7 on the thing.

I have one of those from 2009 (PQI brand, JMicron trouble-rich chip) and it works but the stuttering problem makes it unpractical as a server or desktop.

Had to sleep on this. Wanted it to be good.

I could've used a good, cheap 16GB SATA SSD in several places. It was cheap (auction ended), but probably not good.

Thanks & repped.
