    That's exactly what i'm using them for. 6 in raid5 is 2.4gb, which will house about 22vm's.

    Drives are out for delivery today, CA to PA in 3 days. Awaiting USPS for delivery. Will update with SMART data once they've arrived and I've had a chance to test.

    Looks pretty good. Some of those look almost brand new, with the exception of the first drive.

    Thank you, I was looking for a utility by Samsung but couldn't find one. I'll look when I get home.

    Samsung Magician only works with Consumer SSD drives. These are Enterprise Samsung drives.

    There is an enterprise version of Magician as well. It's not as fancy as the consumer one though. You only get command line access to its functions.

    How does SMART attribute 233 behave for other people on these drives (firmware NS00)? I just started using the drive, and the normalized value has dropped from 95 to 79 after writing several hundred GB. This attribute is often called "Media Wearout Indicator", but I don't think that's valid for Samsung drives.
