    You choice to do what you want but if I had 3 all of the same model that went bad, I would look for a different model / brand.

    Not good track record for an SSD... Try the Samsung Pro 980!

    I understand you and I agree but I am constantly in a limbo for arguing myself into then out of getting a WD red/blue SSD to replace the Sandisk SU800.

    Right now my CF-19 has the low-priority in terms of reliability so I cannot really justify the spending and having a spare semi-reliable SSD.

    Regarding the drive that's in there right now. It does have >90 reallocated sectors. I am not sure if that is high or low.

    Well, in any case... After debating with myself for way too long for ~100USD, I finally ordered WD blue 1TB 2.5". I'll retire the SU800 as an external storage (somelike a dedicated steam drive) until it dies.

    Well, I am going to do the upgrade tomorrow when the new SSD arrives but I guess it was in good timing. Reliability of this laptop just jumped off cliff. Three crashes in one day.

    A bit of an unrelated question.

    I have one fully Aluminum caddy and one half plastic. Which one would you say is better for SSD? I mean aluminum transfer heat faster but the caddy is literally sitting under the heat pipe so the full Aluminum one would actually heat up more at higher load.

    I can do a test with my thermal camera but I am feeling a bit lazy.

    Either one will work fine. The foam padding in the caddy prevents any heat transfer to the aluminum housing or heat pipes.

    Just a side thought because everyone focused on the SSD.
    Did you test or swap out the memory sticks?
    A bad memory stick will cause all sorts of random issues.

    SJLPHI insists everything else is ok, that's why we focused... :))

    Memory issue is possible like anything else but I did use this laptop on W7 as a router before with the same configurations. Not a single crash in over 300 days.

    On side note, it seems that my caddy assembly tape has got stuck to the "void if removed" tape on my ADATA SSD. I guess no more RMA for this thing.
