I know this has been posted twice before but I’m already on my second 240gb extreme…wanted to get an opinion.
First one was 128C out of box, and I had it replaced with another 240gb that has the same problem. Firmware is R201 out of the box and I’ve checked it out with the sandisk toolkit, HWmonitor, crystal, speccy…etc.
My question is this should I just live with this issue?? The SSD works fine other than the temp sensor and it has a 3 year warranty sooo any other problems would be covered anyway. The only thing that upsets me really is the fact I’m on my second drive and its “broken” out of the box. This would not be ok if it was some other piece of hardware, but because I don’t really expect the temperature to be a problem I could technically just live without it. Its just frustrating and a shame that so much hardware comes defective. It’s not just sandisk I’ve read post on ocz forums, corsair, etc. with similar sensor problems.
I already called Sandisk and they would like to RMA this drive which would take about a week before I get the new one. But I’m considering just ignoring/canceling it and living with this issue. Maybe the next firmware update will fix this issue, I dunno.
