Summary: Bought X1 Carbon last year. Still within warranty, SSD dies out of blue after hybernation. Called the Lenovo service department. Known defect (SSD firmware problem when the drive is about to be full) to Lenovo but they don't fix, only offers to reimage my SSD (that is to wipe out all my data). Was told there is nobody in Lenovo I can talk to about data retrieval. Either pay 2k to data retrieval company, or go to a lawyer for class action. Furious!
Summary: Wow - these were such good value... $55,000 each, so cheap I ordered 4 of the beauties - one under each tyre of my Veyron, that'll stop it rolling down my driveway into the swimming pool filled with mac users tears.
Summary: My T400 was getting a bit sluggish with starting Windows 7. By the time I pushed the power on button to when I could work within Outlook was about 7 minutes. I've been doing IT for over 16 years. My system is clean and working great (just slow....). I decided to get the SSD to help speed up my system. I used Windows 7 system image utility to backup and restore onto the new SSD. Worked great.

Summary: If possible, I would RATE THIS ITEM 3.75 STARS I am using a Lenovo 128GB SATA 1.8" Solid State Drive as supplied with a ThinkPad X301 laptop (Samsung MMCQE28G8MUP-0VA SSD). The drive is very small and seams to operate with very little power. I have not measured the exact current (A) value, but the drive is always cool to the touch measuring 80.4 degrees F in an ambient environment of 74.5 degrees as per a KINTREX IRT0421 Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer (see photo).
