Summary: I'm not sure if this was considered a 1st gen version of the SanDisk SSD technology but I will not be getting a replacement from SanDisk.
Pros: it was great while it worked.
Cons: This SSD failed after one year of use. The drive would corrupt windows and would no longer be recognized by the mother board. Loading windows on another drive allowed me to run some diagnostics on this one and it was full of memory errors. Wiped, reloaded and ran the drive for about 2 more weeks ...
Summary: Loved the drive when it was working well. Unfortunately, that was a very short period of time! Sandisk, I just want a working SSD. Please make this right!
Pros: Was super fast for about 3 months. Used as a system drive in my Asus G73, and boy did that thing fly!
Cons: About 3 months in, the drive began behaving erratically. I began getting glitches and hang-ups here and there. Not sure what the problem was, I pressed on. This got steadily worse, eventually resulting in the occasional BSOD. I was advised by Sandisk support to update the firmware and adjust some...
Summary: Only after 2 years? Last time I checked the drive had roughly about 2TB of data written on it. Very disappointed with SanDisk! Time to find a new maker!
Pros: Fast as any other SSDs out there...
Cons: Died after 2 years of service in a notebook... Sad! Always thought of SanDisk as a reliable brand... Right until the SSDs died.. Suddenly! With no sign of weakness... Last Saturday tried to boot my notebook... It almost made all the way to the login screen and then froze... Never happened before!...
I do not recommend buying anything from this trashy reseller
Amazon is extremely pathetic., Amazon

Summary: This drive lasted a bit more than 6 months. I've NEVER had a drive fail on me, and SSD's are supposed to be more reliable than typical hard drives. The company (dealfisher) has a 90-day return policy. I do not recommend buying anything from this trashy reseller.
If the drive continually needs to be reformatted, it's broken.

Pros: The drive is fast while it works.
Cons: The SSD failed about 6 months after I bought it. I have repeatedly needed to reinstall Windows 7. In the process of repairing my computer, updating the SSD's firmware ands stalling Sandisk's software, I have come to realize Sandisk's warranty center does not care if your hard drive fails repeated...
Summary: when i buy a hard drive i dont want failure rate or return.. i want it to last..
Pros: was fast.. loved the speed
Cons: died not long into its life.. 6 months maybe... dont care if they will give me a new one .. not worth the trouble.. last time ill waste cash on this brand.. and to the mfg response auto spam .. im not wasting time talking to some guy in india about all the things it can be other than your product...
Summary: I bought a Sandisk 120GB SSD just over 2 years ago. It died after 11-12 months of use. Sandisk tech support (after about a month delay) sent me a Sandisk 240GB Extreme SSD. Fresh install, good as new (I thought). Fast forward to now. After another 12 month period, the 240GB Extreme is dead.
Pros: It's an SSD, it should be awesome. It was. A long, long time ago.
Cons: Died in about a year. A sandisk SSD that dies in a year, after my previous sandisk SSD died in a year... what terrible products.
