Not a bad price at all, but not the best for reliability if feedback and reviews are to be believed.
Mine completely failed last month after 2.5 years - Amazon did send me a brand new replacement though as it has a three year warranty. I did have to rebuild the PC and reinstall everything which was a pain.
7 months mine lasted - through normal use. Personally I wouldn't buy a SanDisk again as they don't have the reliability.
Mine went kaput within 18 months and so did a mates. It appears most of the failures happen at boot - the Sandisk Windows utility showed both the SSDs were fine before the failures happened. Mate who had one and keeps it on most of the time,is so far OK.
I echo others. Brother had a 240gb variant that died just under the year mark. Sporadic freezes and blue screens til we diagnosed it, up until then we thought it was just Windows being a pain as only boot sectors seemed effected. Even having it on the system caused issues. Connected it to an external dock to see if it was a Windows issue and it blue screened 2 different computers as soon as it connected.

That said I have the 120gb variant in a laptop somewhere and that's running on fine after two years. So take it as you will.
Mine died a few months ago. Luckily it was only games and a 100GB VM on there. Amazon sent a replacement next day. I wouldn't trust this drive with my OS or important data though.
Now £120 from the link. This needs to be expired especially with the samsung evo and crucial mx500 being £109 each.
