Poll: Have you ever had a ssd die on you?

#11Devil_wings00Posted 11/14/2013 9:53:52 PM
Got 5 SSD's in 3 different machines and the oldest one is 3 years old. None have died but 2 of the older ones I own have suffered some obvious performance drop. Even in the most favorable benchmarking conditions they are an easy 100mb/s slower then they were when I bought them but still more then twice as fast as HDD's so I can't complain. Love SSD's wish I had the money to make all my drives SSD's.

No SSD has failed on me yet, same goes for HDDs.

I don't think any part has failed me yet, unless we talk about Kingston USB sticks, ugh...

Been using a 128GB Plextor M3 for almost two years and haven't had a problem.

I've seen ssds trashed after 6 months with regularity when doing db work. The client felt the speed boost justified the operational expenses

I have a 40GB Intel X25-V which is over 3 years old in my desktop and it's still working normally.
Also the SSD in my MacBook is 1.5 years old now and still works fine as well.
