I bought 2 x MX100 256GB SSD drives.
Both when plugged in fail the SMART 180 attribute on starting the computer.
I have tried emailing for support with no luck..
Has anyone seen this type of failure before, and do I need to get the drives replaced?
Any assistance or thoughts appreciated.
I had Samsung drives previously and never had any issues at all.
Any ideas to stabilize this now? How odd.
