Didn't last very long.... Beware of SanDisk Support
16 March 2012
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"...
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: I had this SSD up and running in less than 2 hours and it worked great for a few days. Then my laptop froze on me and I rebooted and got the message "no internal drive connected". Tried hooking it up to my desktop and same thing. Drive died in a few days. pretty lame.. Going to try a crucial or intel SSD now.
Summary: Got what I thought was a fantastic deal on this SDD SanDisk 120 GB Solid State Drive (SDSSDH-120G-G25) (<$1/GB, which is my personal price point for switching to SSD in the future) Did a clean install on my laptop with Windows 7, downloaded and installed all driver updates, bios updates, etc. NO problem installing. Wicked fast boot-up times, great performance during normal use. Gave the system to my wife and she was very happy with it.... ...for about 2 weeks.
Summary: This solid state drive appeared to have better reviews than the other brands, as far as reliability goes anyway, so I bought it. I was fairly impressed with it at first, but then I found that my computer gets a BSOD after waking from sleep, almost every time; especially when it's asleep for an extended period. After researching, this seems to be a very widespread issue.
Summary: I bought this SSD as a replacement for my main partition which was a 640GB WD HDD. So far it has been very stable and is lightning quick. I don't doubt that the poor reviews on this item are legit but I do believe those persons may have received a defective drive. Keep in mind that this size drive is mainly for your OS and not really for storage but it may be used for such.
