Eventually the item makes it's way back to a warehouse without an RMA. Staff will eventually open it up, trace it and your account will be credited. Alternatively you take delivery, immediately get a return, stick RMA number on package and you'll have your refund in a couple of days. Why would you even consider doing something the system isn't designed to do and risk your item and monies disappearing into limbo?


Because Amazon tell you to do that...

"If your order was dispatched directly from Amazon.co.uk and can't be modified, you can refuse the parcel or return it using our Returns Support Centre."

Do you reckon that in 2021 the 2TB 860 QVO will be at £79.99? lol

You don't need to "refuse delivery" with any UK retailer, simply return it - correctly.

1) Ignore this deal and use the item.
2) Sell it, Gumtree, Facebook marketplace, Avforums, eBay.
3) Buy this and have more storage!

The Samsung 860 evo 1TB? I’ve bought that too and it’s faster than this SSD. This deal is still really good
DSR says otherwise.

Point being? And more than likely your 860 was the EVO, they dropped to about £55 and are/were probably slightly better than this drive! Good price for this drive I think.

Actually when you cancel the item on Amazon which is in transit and it doesn't reach the dispatch driver... Amazon's advice is to refuse delivery. You get a full refund.

If it's the EVO deal, keep it. It's better than this and worth the difference.

Return fee is usually ~£4. paying £4 for a £15 saving still makes sense

Cool. It's easy to get caught up in the obsession with how one SSD is faster than another and miss the wood for the trees.

Ehhh. The QVO drive is faster than a mechanical drive generally, but not at all times. Look at the anandtech review posted and you'll see while generally it's ok, it can get pretty bad - especially for an SSD. Writing to the entire drive, it's slower than a mechanical hard drive once it's SSD cache is full (size being 6-42GB). Also

"Where internal fragmentation is caused by writing to the drive randomly, the QVO's read speed suffers much more than for the TLC drives, and the 1TB 860 QVO ends up slightly slower than a mechanical hard drive."

I'd personally spend the extra £20 and get the evo, or an MX500 which are not QLC. Also, the 1TB evo has 600TB written drive endurance compared to the 360 of the QVO and a 5 vs 3 year warranty.

Been a few months now sadly. Faulty items are free return inside a certain window. It used to be mega big (window) but now up to a year a lot of returns are to manufacturer via Amazon rather than replaced by Amazon immediately.

I'd go for the reliability and speed of evo

I found when choosing the reason for return just pick the item is faulty option to get a free return. Anything else Amazon end up charging you.

I suspect you bought an EVO. It has an almost double resource.
Cold, when the SLC cache is full transfer speeds are diabolical on this, less than half the speed of a typical hard drive.

If you've got the money you can order the new one and just send the other one back. Make sure not to open the actual packaging or anything.
Hello, bit off topic but my daughters laptop keeps crashing/overheating when playing sims on her aging laptop. Would swapping out the hard drive and replacing it with an ssd help? Thanks in advance for any advice/comments.

I've only ever sent a 2-3 items back using this method and i've never been charged after for the item not being faulty. But then again i may have got lucky and they just didn't test those items.

Worst case if they do actually bother testing the item you get charged for the return which you would have to have paid anyway, best case you get the return for free.

I've been in similar situation before, and amazon themselves have instructed me to refuse delivery.
