Hi guys.

I was wondering what possible drawbacks there might be to buying a OEM SSD.
I'm looking at a Samsung 470 (PM810) 256GB OEM SSD and having had no idea what OEM even stood for until a couple of hours ago, I'm now wondering if OEM hardware is worth buying.

Can anyone explain the cons for me?

  1. You get no software or fancy packaging with it, generally it is just the drive in an ant-static sleeve in maybe another small card-board box. On things like hard-drives, there is really no downside to going OEM, they are just cheaper.
  2. Ok. Thank You for the response.
  3. Samsung is also a huge manufacture of OEM SSD's have you by chance had a gander at the Samsung 830's
  4. biggest gotcha is also no cables, so be sure to include in your order if needed.
