Em setembro do ano passado falei aqui no Skooter Blog sobre a aquisição de um SSD Sandisk Ultra II G25 SDSSDHII-480G-G25, 480GB, SATA3, 2.5′. He was working perfectly, until early last month had a sudden death. When you turn on the laptop it was as if the SSD doesn't exist. Did removing the SSD, testei com um adaptador USB em um PC, mas também não funcionou.
Como não havia passado nem um ano desde a compra e a garantia é de 3 years, fiquei tranquilo. Also because já usei a garantia da Sandisk e ela foi ótima. Então apenas registrei o incidente pelo site da Sandisk no dia 02/06/2016.
No mesmo dia a Sandisk já respondeu e perguntou se eu aceitaria um SSD Extreme Pro 480GB (SDSSDXP-480G), modelo superior ao que eu tinha. Aceitei alegremente! 🙂 No último RMA eles também ofereceram esse upgrade, mas foi um upgrade de Extreme para Extreme Pro, sendo que o Extreme já estava fora de linha. The Ultra II is still online and is a lower model to the Extreme PRO, so it was a really great upgrade, because I was with a product faster and with 10 year warranty!
I did send the faulty SSD for my account, because Sandisk does not pay shipping. This is the only defect of the RMA them. No give 09/06 Sandisk has confirmed the arrival of the package. The analysis took a few days, something that had not occurred the last time.
No give 15/06 Sandisk sent the tracking code SSD Extreme Pro 480GB (SDSSDXP-480G), sent via UPS, directly from the U.S.:

The service was the UPS Worldwide Expedited, that is quite fast. No give 21/06 I was with the Pack in hands, but faster than a lot of purchase I made on national store.
The taxes were paid by Sandisk, a total of R$ 745,54, based on the declared value of $ 204,43, that is even a little higher than the retail value on Amazon, that today is $ 187,75.

To worry about just the fact the SSD have filed sudden death. I had the backup of all data, but the operating system and all programs needed to be reinstalled, settings needed to be redone, ultimately, considerable work. Furthermore, were almost 3 weeks with my laptop stopped working.
But fortunately the Sandisk once again honored the warranty and gave me a much better product than what I had before. It's a shame that Sandisk SSDs are so hard to find and so expensive here in Banânia. And on the rare occasions they are found, are almost always only entry models.
