I built a home PC in Jan 2017 with my 1st SSD on M.2 drive. Worked great till approx Jan 2018 when SSD6 600P 512 GB boot drive failed and I needed to rebuild windows 10 OS. Techs at shop had no explanation or ideas why and I had no prior warnings of pending failures. Everything works great again, till Jan 2019 when it failed again. No windows OS repair features helped. So I'm thinking about going back to standard SSD for boot up drive to improve reliability. Any feedback, ideas or suggestions?
If I install a new SSD (none m.2) for a more reliable boot drive, other than e-waste scrap, any ideas or uses for Intel 600P 512 GB boot M.2 SSD drive?
Also a recommendation for a reliable SSD brand would be welcome. I'm just a hobby techy retired guy, so it's just my home office PC (not a really heavy use for PC), but rebuilding my boot drive and reacquiring/setting up programs/Data from to 3 TB x2 drives etc, is getting tiresome every 12 months.
