Great while it lasted

Summary: Very fast - made my old desktop PC seem like it was new. Unfortunately, my first drive failed after about 3 months. Sandisk support was good and I got another one under warranty. Same story - worked great for a couple of months and then it failed. Great potential - lousy execution.
Summary: This device was easy to install, once I had the brackets and cables, super fast and booted in 10 seconds from POST. This lasted for four months. Today, after 4 months of very light use, just when I wanted to get some work done, I got a BSOD and the machine crashed. On reboot, the BIOS refused to recognize the SSD. Changed cables, changed PS connector - no dice. I tried changing the SATA port on the MB, no love. RMA time. I will buy a reliable SSD in the interim.
Didn't last very long.... Beware of SanDisk Support

Summary: Purchased this item 2 1/2 months ago to use as my Windows 7 64 bit boot drive. It worked for a little over 2 months until this morning. The drive won't boot, can't be read in a USB enclosure on other PCs, etc. I just spent over an hour with San Disk support trying to get an RMA. Their support chat doesn't work (it tells you are 1 or 2 in line for assistance, and after 10 minutes, it tells you to "Try again later"...
Summary: This is the first video camera that i have owned. i later upgraded to one that took dvds. the picture quality of the dvd video camera was better, however, with this camera, zoom is better, no camera shake, and the tapes do not ruin like the cds do when exposed to seashore areas...
Died within 1 week, the replacement after one day.

Summary: Installed this in a Dell Latitude E6500 and followed with a fresh install of Windows 7. It worked fine for one week, but then the computer would not boot, nor could the drive been seen in an external enclosure. Amazon replaced it, but the same thing happened to the replacement drive after one day. Not exactly the level of reliability that I had been expecting. The old disk drive continues to work fine.
Summary: SanDisk is not reliable! I've lost all of my files on it! It ran fast until today in the morning I've turned on my laptop and it does not find my SSD anymore! I've tried it in my other computers and it does not work! Hopefully will get my RMA! I will never buy from SanDisk again!!!
Summary: There are so many SSDs out there however this drive is one of the most affordable one you can get. in addition to its competitive price, it has so much potential as boot-up drive (or primary OS drive) because of its super-fast reading capability and zero access time. Of course, there are better SSDs in the market but they are not so cheap as this one. (You need to pay at least $50 more to get SATA III SSD.
Summary: Fast and cheap! I am in the process of replacing all boot drives onf my pc/laptops/macs with SSD's I know its quite expensive but I am taking my time and buying one by one. Cant believe a 4yr old macbook booting up in less than 20 secs and opening adobe CS in about 30 seconds. Update on Jan 5. This will be my third purchase of the same 120gb. Now its on two laptops and a desktop. I am debating if I going to put my third one in my mac mini 2011 or another laptop I have.
Summary: First, the Pros: it's a terrific SSD value; if you don't have SATA3 on your current machine, you won't notice the speed difference (even if you did have SATA3 and a SATA3 SSD, it's unlikely unless you're moving very large files often); the overall build quality seems good. The Caveats: google around and make sure that you know what your specific build/machine needs.
