You mean, "if it was $100 AND without tax"

I've had 2 of these fail. First one lasted 2 months, second one just short of 1 month. Installed in a Dell G3 15" laptop, both did the exact same thing, system locked up, noticed the palmrest area where the SSD sits was unusually warm. Rebooted into recovery and chkdsk finds tons of bad sectors. Put drive in a desktop with PCIe adapter card and test, same thing, keeps finding unrepairable bad sectors. For what they're capable of I barely even gave them a workout. Both failed while just surfing the web. the thing spends 90% of the time sitting in a vertical dock so airflow is no issue. I do PC repair and IT for a living so it's not like I'm some noob who didn't install it right.

Ouch! Do these still have heat issues even in PCs or is it just in more enclosed laptops?

I bought one of these for my son's MSI laptop and it runs cooler (32°C) than my Samsung 960 Pro (52°C) in my desktop. That's according to CrystalDiskInfo anyway.

Assuming you updated the firmware? First I've heard of problems on here.

In for one. Even though my PC has no more free NVMe slots. Will put this in an external case and make it into a 1 Tb thumbdrive.

In both cases the CPU and GPU temps were low when the failures occurred. In this model (G3 3579), the SSD is about as far away as it can possibly get from the CPU and GPU heatsinks. If it failed due to cooling issues, then I would expect it to have this issue in any laptop.

To be clear for the first few weeks when it was operating normally it did not get hot. Even when restoring 600GB Acronis backup it didn't break a sweat. However in both cases when it did fail I noticed that it was crazy hot and it was not while there was any significant I/O to the drive. I don't think the failure was a result of overheating, I think the excessive temperature was a result of the failure.
