I have this SSD. I wouldn't call it the pinnacle of reliability. I've had a few times I had to "reset" it because of some bug it has. You have to connect the drive to a power source without connecting the SATA and power cycle it. After that, you've got about 6 months of "ok" reliability before it does again and you have to do the power cycle again. Its kind of a strange bug and apparently common with the drive.

Edit: apparently this might be fixed with a firmware update. Also, I want to clarify that I've never lost any data with the drive. Its just that it will stop working randomly every 6 months or so. It could just be that I got an unlucky drive. This drive does get very good reviews so take my experience with a grain of salt.

If this is the same seller (TheKeyKey), they have an eBay store if anyone wants to read their feedback https://www.ebay.com/str/thekeykey (18891 feedback, 99.6% rating, Top Rated Seller)

And their own website: https://www.thekeykey.com/

Nothing reported on ResellerRatings https://www.resellerratings.com/s...keykey_com
