There is no warranty through Micron for these specific Micron branded models. You gonna get this SSD in a bubble wrap. Micron does not retail anything, this drive made for OEMs like Dell, HP...etc. Micron sells their retail models under Crucial brand, nevertheless, drives are brand new with 0 hours on them.

wat. SSDs don't have a spindle to wear out. IMO besides the early teething issues encountered with controllers they are more reliable.

Edit: To clarify
Reliability is different than endurance. One is the likeliness of failure/consistency, the other is the expected lifetime. If tony actually repaired your fiat 500, sure it'll last about as long as your neighbors honda fit but it isn't as reliable.

SSDs are way more reliable. That wear and tear is predictable, and the SSD usually won't conk out before the given number of write cycles, which is usually very conservatively stated by the manufacturer. Even with heavy desktop usage, they will last you several years or decades. They also handle shocks just fine because they have no moving parts.

HDDs on the other hand are not as predictable. They can stop working any time. With SSDs you effectively get a countdown till it stops working, and the countdown lasts years.

Got one!

The reviews on Amazon are good (there are two listings for that model number: https://smile.amazon.com/Micron-M...B01LB05TOO, https://smile.amazon.com/Micron-1...B01LB05YOO), and it appears to have a 3 year warranty. (at least through Amazon -- I'm guessing through Rakuten as well since usually it's manufacturer warranties)

It's not M.2, but for the storage space and price, it's the best deal I've seen in the last couple months I've been looking. (if you can actually use the 2TB of space anyway)

I feel like once I lost my data on a drive, that company is good as dead to me.

It's the best deal in terms of TB per $ and Micron SSDs are pretty good, no problem there.
It's just most people need some warranty, especially, with SSDs, they are not as reliable as HDDs but getting better and better.

They have NAND flash chips that wear out. Every erase/write degrades the memory cells a little until they finally go bad.

This particular drive has as rated lifetime of 400TBW, which is pretty good and should last years or decades for the average PC user. I wouldn't use an SSD in a 24/7 security cam DVR, but PC use should be just fine.

You don't have to agree with my point, that's why I said, they are getting better and better, they don't have mechanical spindles, you are right, but they do have electronic cells with electrons, it's like a car tire, there is a wear and tear involved, do some research, please.

I am not bashing SSDs and NAND technology overall, my original intention was to tell everyone "This Micron does not come with any warranty". HDD and SSDs can suddenly stop working due to the numerous reasons, both technologies have pros and cons, don't care which is better. Put SSD in DVR recording 24/7 and see it what happens in a few months. With desktop usage it will last you decades for sure, what's a desktop usage? Boot drive, office documents? The same applies to any HDD, in a desktop usage environment it will serve you decades as well. I have seen people reporting SSD failing in a few months, the same applies to mechanical drives.
When comes to constant writes and eraces cycles, HDDs are better and more reliable.

Again, let's not make this thread SSD vs HDD, my main argument was the lack of warranty, just delivering message to everyone who is thinking,l it comes with 3 years warranty.

You should google SSD Endurance test; I think anadtech or arstechnica pushed a samsung SSD to the limit until it started giving errors
