This is a 3-bit MLC V-NAND SSD with a 1GB DRAM cache and a 600TBW/5 year warranty.
User experience is that these drives are returns often with very low power on and TBW. Worth a shot imho.

For those wondering these aren't refurbished in any way by BB. They're open box with typically less than 200hrs of use. Samsung's original warranty still applies from the date the drive was manufactured.
I dunno...I once asked geek squad if they had any SATA cables and they tried directing me to the home theater department.
Best Buy's site says it only has a 90 day warranty.

It's 5 years on a new one, is it only 90 days on a refurb?

Why would BB receive Refurbished SSD's?
Were these sent back by customers that felt they failed?

so we can still expect roughly 4+ years of warranty?

It seams that the prices are creeping up a bit.. But a used ssd ? Makes you wonder just how or why they were returned or reconditioned..

"15-DAY FREE & EASY RETURNS
You get 15 days to return or exchange this item"

Any one care to recommend a stress test for 10days?

Same as the SSDs sold by AmazonWarehouse with the condition 'used acceptable/good/very good'. I just ordered some used, 25~50% off Samsung 860 EVOs/PROs from Amazon. The discount is pretty sweet.
