Working one is fast. Bad one is reveresed.
April 8, 2019
I purchased one of these 120GB ones last week for a NuC and installed it, all seemed fine, then in the middle of cloning the system to it, it died.
I debated giving up on these, but decided to try one more time and Amazon immediately sent me a replacement which arrived today. I took every safety precaution and installed it, let it acclimate, and cloned the system over to it and the second one as of the last 3 hours is performing flawlessly.
This is replacing a Kingston 2.5 ssd as the sata connector card in the NuC is defective. When I booted up the system after setting the bios to start form the msata card, the speed was phenomenal compared to the older kingston ssd.
If it works for a long time this will make me very happy.
Of note, the first one I received is the complete opposite of the pictures here in this item page. the chips and components were on the opposite sides of the board! I do not know what kind of revision it was, but it died immediately. The second one that is working looks just like the first image in the listing here.
Amazon gets top marks for getting me a replacement immediately!
