Default Has your SSD ever broken down?

or had some major problem? In this survey I'm not looking for an opinion. I'm checking to see how reliable they are.

Default Re: Has your SSD ever broken down?

I had an OCZ Vertex Turbo just plain die. I had revived it several times via DISKPART CLEAN, but finally even the BIOS couldn't recognize it.

I had an OCZ Vertex 2 die in a very similar manner.

Obviously, I don't use OCZ SSDs any longer

I have 3 128G ssds in use (Kingston, Intel and Crucial) and have not had any issues with any of them. The oldest has been in use about 18 months, the newest about 3 months.

Default Re: Has your SSD ever broken down?

I have an Intel 80GB X25-M, two Crucial 256GB M4 series, a Crucial 512GB M4, and a Mushkin 240GB Enhanced Chronos Deluxe.

The Intel in the oldest at 3 years, the Mushkin about 15 months, the 256GB M4 drives about 6 to 8 months, and the 512GB M4 about 3 months.

I have not experienced a single issue with any of them. Two of them are in laptops, while the others are in my desktop.
