That sucks. Hey, at the very least, you can figure out what part isn't working and replace it. People without that knowledge would have just gotten a whole new computer, probably with an OEM markup. Still sucks though... Well, the SD kits are quite easy to build. In fact, I usually just break the pieces off the runners with my fingers for these rather than using tools, as the pieces are quite big and tools take too long. More delicate ones need tools though as pieces are sooooooooooo tiny at times. Got a 500 GB MX500 as I'm tired of waiting for some programs that take forever to load. Apparently pricing for SSDs will drop quite a bit, but US tarrif stuff might bring the price back up again. Didn't really wait for sales or anything ( probably saved like 5 usd max anyways). Just finally snapped and got tired of waiting a minute or two for a few programs to boot up, especially with how often some of them crash.
