Pros: Was fast and quiet. Never got too warm. It did what it was supposed to do.

Cons: Died at the 13 month mark. Started getting bad sectors at month 11 and just progressively got worse.

Other Thoughts: would cost almost as much to ship it for RMA as it would to just buy a new one.
Western Digital here I come.

1 out of 5 eggs worked great till it died 03/04/2016

This review is from: SanDisk Z400s 2.5" 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SD8SBAT-128G-1122

Pros: Fast, small, no moving parts

Cons: did not come with a SATA cable or mounting screws, died after 4 months.

Other Thoughts: While not as fast as some enthusiast grade SSDs, this drive is way faster than any HDD I have ever owned. After a string of bad luck with HDDs I decided to go with something different. Installation was a breeze. Fastest windows install I've ever experienced. RMA in progress with SanDisc, will update review accordingly.
