Buying used SSD

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

There is a guy selling a used Samsung 850 EVO 250GB for, when converted from my currency, $63. The drive, according to attached HDSentinel pic, has been on for 88 days and has 4.70TB written.

 

Do you think this is a good deal, should I get it?

@G27Racer_188, 4.7TB is a huge amount. Its best to just get a brand new SSD. Plus, you'd get a fresh warranty as well. :)

Yes, 4.7 TB is a lot, but the drive is rated at 75 TBW.

 

Also brand new 850 EVO 250 is about $115, while cheap 240GB TLC drive (Kingston UV400) is about $71.

Hi @G27Racer_188!

 

It depends on your personal preference, but I would prefer to go with a new unit because there could be some potential issues with the SSD you don't know about and a lot of times you won't be able to get refund. With that said, it's very important, or at least IMO, to ask the seller to send you the full S.M.A.R.T. report, like @knightslugger wrote, so you can check what the RAW values are currently.

 

If you want you can upload the screenshots so we can take a look. :)
