    Re: SanDisk Extreme 500 (500GB)

    Once bitten twice shy. Whereas their 240GB drives seem OK,the 480GB and 960GB one I am not so sure about. The alarm bells started ringing when my mates 480GB one failed just after a year,and mine a bit after that. That means out of three drives me and my mates had,two 480GB ones had failed and looking on some other retailers sites and forums,it does seem the 480GB one really has design fault(or a bad batch) and as people can have the drive working fine one moment and once you boot it up again it suddenly dies. My mate who still has his original 480GB working tends not to switch his system off. Even know some people on OcUK who had the 960GB one cause problems too.

    Mates who have the 240GB version seem OK though.
