We are experiencing an increasing amount of defective Kingston SSDs SA400S37240G. Some of them died suddenly; others freeze reularly for 10 to 30 seconds.
Since fall 2019 we are seeing an increasing amount of failed Kingston 2,5″ SATA 240GB SSDs drives; model A400.
The purchase date in most cases: 2017.
The error messages: „bootsector not found“, „no bootable media“, „no bootable device“.
The defective devices can’t be re-initialized nor re-formatted.
Luckily these SSDs are under 3 years warranty by Kingston. Since 2017 we are preferring Samsung Evo/Pro SSDs.
Backup your data regularly! No matter what harddisk you have!
