5 months ago.

the read write benchmark numbers are amazing at first, then after a few months of fairly intensive writing/reading from the drive (roughly 1tb on a 480gb drive), the ssd started slowing/crapping out/causing os to freeze up. upon further reading - i realized that this drive uses cheaper ssd memory chips. stay away from this drive, and go with something that uses 3d nand.
