I have contacted the seller of the drive and will see how things go, I'm really not happy with the idea of sending it off but may have to. I did all the research before i bought it. Having to possibly throw more money at it just makes me mad. To me it was still an expensive investment.

This is my first post here. I installed a 1tb mx500 just about 2 weeks ago. All was fine up to 2 days ago. I was watching Netflix when the browser crashed,followed by black screen. It didnt come back. I did a restart and got the folder with a question mark. I put my old drive back in, all good. I had a new sata cable which I bought as a backup due to posts i had read before buying an ssd regarding cable failure. So I swapped out the cable, tried the old drive, still working. Then retested the ssd, no go. Power cycled next, as directed. Tried this with the drive in the laptop, outside via usb and with docking station. I have a new usb cable with seperate data and power on the way to try but it's not looking great. I even put the drive in another laptop, Windows not sure if that would work but figured it would still show up in the bios, no. So, any other suggestions would be much appreciated. Also should I need to return it, I'm concerned about sensitive data on the drive with no way to wipe it. I have contacted the store where I purchased, from ebay and waiting for a reply.
