I haven't every bought GS Certified Refubished before from BestBuy (whatever that means). Generally only bought clearance, open-box, daily deals, etc.

But thought it was a pretty good deal for a Samsung 500GB SSD for $53.

Yes, for a refurbished model it might be a good deal but why even bother with refurbished in the first place? Brand new Samsung EVO (500 GB capacity) go on sale very frequently these days and can be had easily for about $60-70 when they do go on sale. I think I've probably seen atleast 10 different deals posted here on the 500 GB capacity drive just this year alone. All of them were very close to this $53 price. It's fine if you want to buy this yourself but I'd rather pay $10 more for a brand new one sealed in box with the original 3 year warranty. Good luck to you!

Personally, I prefer the 5 year warranty.

My bad, the warranty is indeed 5 years for EVO models. (3 year only for the QVO models).

I repair PC's for people and sometimes I will buy several Samsung 250GB / 500GB drives to keep when I need them. But when I run out, the refurbished drives from either Best Buy or B&H are good options. Typically they are very low hours, sometimes only 1 hour to 20 hours of usage. Probably a return they tested, wiped and put it for sale. Just bought (2) 250GB drives from BB Tuesday to replace and OCZ arc 100 and Sandisk Plus drive. Haven't had a Samsung fail yet.. Some people have had luck registering the warranty on them, I don't bother. In 5 years the PC will need to be replaced anyways.

I had BB rewards to burn and this is for a super cheap gift build, so hope it will work out.

You might be slow on the uptake, but you are correct.

those are probably some of the very best drive sans the pro series.
i run at least 50 to 60 Samsung 850 EVO/PRO SSDs over a number of years 24/7 in DC environment and yet to see one fail.
i'd take this over the intel 545 drives. i have faith in Samsung that i don't need their warranty years down the line. in for a few to replace intel 545 in my home nas.

Why would you need SSDs in a NAS?

Ugh. 90 day warranty. I think I'd spend an extra $10 for the 5 year warranty. Need one but can wait for BF. There's a few reviews where the drives did fail or were DOA.
