A little googling shows this to be an drive targeted to OEMs, like Dell. I guess that's neither a good nor bad thing - just curious about the absence of 'EVO' or 'PRO' labeling. ..

Correct. This is the type of drive that you'll find in a system purchased directly from the vendor. They tend to focus more on reliability than performance

Is this not an 840 EVO based drive? If so it has the bug where files with old timestamps slow way down and Samsung has an inelegant fix for it...

slightly slower sequential writes on the PM851, much lower power consumption though...

Since it's a seller on Newegg's platform, and not Newegg themselves - is the warranty going to be honored?

Aside from the seller, it appears to be an OEM product - usually warranty is handled through whichever third party company sold the part in their computer.

Edit: https://us.community.samsung.com/...d-p/105101

You'd have to request a return to have whoever bought it from Samsung in the first place deal with a replacement.

"If the drive was bought independently from a distributor or reseller, you need to file an RMA to the seller, who will then RMA the drive to whichever Samsung branch sold the drive initially."

This is all assuming that the seller actually purchased these themselves and aren't just offloading stock from some other company. Samsung doesn't honor warranty directly from customer on any but retail drives: "The only Retail drives Samsung Electronics America supports are the 470, 830, 840, 840 PRO, 840 EVO, 750 EVO, 850 PRO, 850 EVO, 850 PRO, 950 PRO, 960 EVO, 960 PRO, 845 DC EVO, 845 DC PRO, PM863, SM863, PM863a, SM863a, Portable T1 , and Portable T3."

Treat this drive as a non-warrantied product.

Good comment. I posted a question on the item page on Newegg's site. Hopefully the seller will get back with more info. Feel free to add your own question there if I misinterpreted what you were wanting to know, or if you want more information.

When I googled the model number for my link in the post above yours, I found another posting in a Dell forum that says they were affected by this same bug.
