Died after less than 2 years of use as a boot drive

Summary: Put the 3G version of this in my MacBook Pro. Found it to be too small so I replaced it with another larger SSD. Since then it gets used a few times a year for photo backup. This year, 2 days before a trip and 4 days before the warranty expired, I found it had failed.
