I’m having the same issue, actually twice. When I originally received 3 of the 128G, about a year ago, they worked fine for about 6 months. Then they started overheating (VERY hot) and slowing down. I returned them to SanDisk under warranty and received new ones. Those were fine for a bout 6 months and now, I’m back in the same situation. They are overheating and have slowed down so much as to be unusable.
There seems to be a design flaw with these 128G units. I have several 64 Gig ones of the “same model” and those have been working fine for years.
Does anyone know if SanDisk will replace these with a model that works? If they sent me replacement of the same model, I would not trust them. I keep good backups, but every time they fail, I have to go through recovering everything and that is time consuming.
The return process seems so “sterile”. I’m afraid if I return these under warranty, I’ll just get more of the same. Any thoughts?
