Was anyone able to get partial discounts? How much? What did the bottomline come out to?

Pretty heavily used :(. i can't imagine how much still left of the write rating given that these were used in servers....

From the sellers feedback looks like he does this a lot and then either refuses returns, or ignores communication.

How much data were written to the SSDs? Just because it's 900 days doesn't really mean it's heavily used. It maybe a hot spare drives.

It's clearly used and it's not right to list those as "new". Leave a Negative feedback to warn others.

I bought 8 of these drives.

This morning I messaged the seller to complain about the issue and they authorized an RMA, but I'm not super excited about throwing away money on return shipping. I still want the drives that I ordered, which I'm not certain they can provide.

I bought one of the same from newegg and it's a lemon. I cloned my windows Os partition from a smaller samsung SSD to the 843T. First time I ran a backup Windows locked up completely after a few minutes. Tried again, same result. After restarting, computer would hang at the post screen where drive detection happens. I would have to completely power off, wait a minute and then it would be recognized and boot up. Same behavior with a different backup software. Interestingly enough, I ran spinrite on level 2 on it and finished ok, but complained of not being able to read SMART. I tried a different port and cable on the motherboard as well, same story.
Returning it to the egg. I guess there was a reason these were removed from the original system they came out of.
