I have used it happily for over 2 years (until last year) and I have never
heard any such complaints about the M130. If anything, it is the earlier
models among the M100 series that suffered from issues such as data loss
due to bad capacitor/s (or whatever that was).
Try recovering all the data without installing any extra applications. Give
it a go for a couple of days and see if that has a positive impact. If the
problems persist, you may have bought a damaged unit.
Hope it helps,
