Careful with those Micron branded drives. They will not honor the warranty if you are a consumer and not a business.

I believe I started earlier than him but took longer time on editing the extra item from the same newsletter.

to Mod: Don't modify my post to make it look weird.

why thumb down?
I had doubt when I made purchase during December but I did receive a brand new M600 SSD.
The mod should either combine my post with the other repost or leave mine alone.

That's worth pointing out, but not really without also noting that this seller isn't claiming it's warranted by Micron and also, is itself warranting them for a year, at least. Not as good as a full warranty, but likely to cover at least a significant percentage of any drives that might have problems…

Not "repost", a "simultaneous post". This and the other thread were started 2 minutes apart. This OP is obviously too long to have been written and posted within the 2 minutes after the other thead went live, and s equally obviously, it'd be absurd to expect someone to check for "prior" posts in between writing one and actually hitting the "post" button, after having searched for previous thread on the same deal.

Maybe because some people are thinking it's a re-post (of the same deal, not the previous one), even though it's clearly not if one actually bothers to read the time stamps...

This is an OEM drive and as I understand the only warranty offered is by the seller for one year. Often is there is a defect it will show up early so though it a bit of a risk it was one I was willing to take.

The M600 is an older product but the performance is fairly decent, not the best performing but far from bad. Though the price is now $219 it's still better the best price for a 1TB drive I've seen. There are some drives that come a bit close in the $230 to to $240 range but they are usually TLC NAND usually a little lower in the performance scale.

For everyday computer use this will be more than enough performance for most normal users. It's a very good price on a solid SSD, especially with the current rising SSD prices.

For the price it think it hard to pass up. I got one when it was still $187 and if I could of afforded it I would of gotten more than one.

Some relevant info to compare:

Actually, I just contacted, SmithBuy today in regards to the these drives. What SmithBuy told me was that, as long as I hang onto the receipt and have the P.O.# they will back the warranty on the drives. Granted out of warranty, doesn;t really matter at that point. Though some places when you approach it right, you can get help. Meaning replaced drives that were out of warranty. Etc.

I bought (2) 1TB M600's on the last deal before Christmas. Tested against (2) Samsung 850 Pro 512GB. Now granted, I am not a huge tech head, or over-clocker, etc. But I am upgrading my editing rig. Upgraded CPU's, Graphics, from platter drives to SSD's, RAM, etc. When I benched the (4) SSD drives one by one, the numbers were all pretty damn similar. The only thing that ever altered the numbers majorly, was the controller I tried them all on. So, what I can say so far, not unhappy with the Micron's, they will be used for video and motion graphics. Write to and from for footage, etc. The Samsung's are my OS and Cache drives. Platter based drives are for other source material too.

Though I haven't decided if I'm going to Raid any of these or not.

The 1TB SSD from SmithBuy is back in stock, but now at $219. I wish it would be back at $189
