    I wonder if it's just 970's. I recently bought 860 Samsung 500GB SSD from Amazon.

    Shouldn't take long to transfer 450+gb , set it off while your having your dinner , come back and it should be almost done ,
    Well that's if the movies are in the same PC ,
    if it's on a NAS drive then yea that could take some time ...

    Did you just recently purcahse the drive, guessing Black Friday?

    I bought one earlier in the year about June, haven't had any problems with mine but might have to check up on this.

    How about running a speed check on it ?

    I got mine back in July and the first thing I did after installing it was check the speed, 3500/2500 read/write, matches the spec. Used CrystalDiskMark.

    If speed and capacity checks out, it's probably good.

    Just an update
    Just recieved replacement . I have not opened it , just checked the packing and gone over it 3-4 times with magnifying glass .. I honestly cannot see any difference in packing , the stickers ( serial number fonts ) are the same style . Both packings are indentical , even the cardboard is the same . I will check the other P.C drive , later as busy doing other things .
