  2. Welcome to the world of cheap SSD's.
    The bottom line is you get what you pay for; cheaper SSD's suffer from stalling and wear (full formatting isn't a good idea), that's why the more expensive ones are more expensive.

    so it not my drive then?
  4. There's probably nothing wrong with it.
    The built-in Flash controller will automaticaly hide any bad blocks, so there is no point in a surface scan or full format.
    A quick format should be OK; the read speeds should be better than an standard HD, but writing large files will be slow and suffer from stalling.
