I am conducting a poll to see how many of our members have experienced SSD failure.
I just experienced it last night. Which sucks, because it was my main OS and Steam Games drive.
I have a new (smaller) one on the way just for the OS, and this time a WD Caviar Black for all the other files and games since I don't want to take a chance on another failure. Lucky the important files were backed up. The drive was about a year old.
In researching new SSDs online, I noticed quite a few people have had SSDs go out on them.
In all the SSD review articles, they talk about failure rates compared with regular mechanical drives and how they should last a long time, yet, this is not what the actual user reviews show.
So I thought, why not post a poll and see how many of our users here have had an SSD failure?
EDIT: Good suggestion from FiX: If you've had an SSD go out on you, post up what kind.
