The original SSD failed in less than a year. One day Windows BSOD'd on me and wouldn't even system restore properly. I tried to install Ubuntu which gave me read-only filesystem errors.
I purchased and installed a brand new SSD (Intel 660p 1TB), which seemed to fix the problem for about a week. Then I started getting errors related to the hard drive again.
Lenovo UEFI Diagnostics is inconsistent; sometimes the Device Read Test failed (in attached file), sometimes it passed without any issues. Ubuntu randomly crashes with EXT4-fs error.
I ran memory tests and that all seems to be fine.

It could be either a bad drive or a motherboard issue (disk controller). I would first get a copy of CrystalDiskInfo (freeware) and see what it thinks about the drive.

I favor the Samsung drives..
Here are some things I do (Or verify) after installing a new SSD:
Deactivate prefetch and superfetch
UEFI Secure Boot is Off
CSM Support: YES
Activate AHCI mode in the registry and then Bios (It May be activated already)
Turn off defragmentation
Use A GPT partition
