    GMan, you might find this thread interesting: SSD Write Endurance 25nm Vs 34nm

    Seems SSDs aren't as fragile as previously suspected.

    Are you kidding me? Seriously??

    All I see on that page is:

    "Read failures started increasing. A few days later it died."

    "Disconnected a few times and then completely disappeared."

    "Bad blocks caused failures."

    "Total failure. Not readable."

    "It disappeared."

    "Unknown started disconnecting randomly."

    "Unknown but was raising bit errors."

    "Data retention failure."

    "It wore out and is practically read only later found incapable of being detected."

    "Test aborted due to LTT."




    Shall I go on or are you already satisfied that you've went a HUGE way to proving my point for me? Thanks. lol (Congrats. You did better than I did.)

    Why do you types of guys always do this? Serious question.

    Thanks for the good laugh.

    In the spirit of attempting to make things excellent here as they should be, I want to say a quick few things.

    When I am not continually challenged for the sake of it or just to prove me wrong, I am a very likeable person; the kind that will give you my shirt off my back if you were in need. I don't mind being asked or disputed, but I can easily tell the difference when I'm being challenged unnecessarily. For instance, I have complete respect for what Brink does on this site and others. Yesterday, I brought up something in a thread that I thought might be incomplete or incorrect information and we had a discussion about it. Together, we arrived at the reasons why things worked the way they do. Not for even a quick second do I feel like I am battling him or competing with him or anything like that.

    I instinctively know that Brink would never just try to go against something for the sake of it. In addition, I am sure he has kept quiet when he might have known something better than what I've said here or there.

    I think that is the best way to be, so from this point on, I will be like that with every member on this site. It was my mentality the moment I joined. From where I am sitting, I consider it a clean slate with everyone. There are impressive things I see from many here, so don't think I am out to be against anyone or anything like that.

    GMan, I don't think anybody is trying to challenge you for the sake of an argument. But I have noticed that you sometimes are very strict in your views even when it is obvious that you have not yet considered all aspects of a subject. Some of the 'elders' will in most cases not let you get away with a story where more discussion is required. I think is is all happening in the constructive spirit of this forum and you should not view that as a negative or an attempt to discount your views.

    Keep your contributions coming but make sure you have researched all aspects of a subject or invite other members to fill in the blanks.

    Elder or no elder, you can't disrespect me by saying I have any kind of story I'm trying to get away with.
    The audacity of this statement and some of the other things you've just said bewilder me, especially after all in this thread.

    You know what - don't you see how your falsehood has started everything in this thread or shall I repeat what was in my next to last post again?

    Code:
    "Read failures started increasing. A few days later it died."
     
    "Disconnected a few times and then completely disappeared."
     
    "Bad blocks caused failures."
     
    "Total failure. Not readable."
     
    "It disappeared."
     
    "Unknown started disconnecting randomly."
     
    "Unknown but was raising bit errors."
     
    "Data retention failure."
     
    "It wore out and is practically read only later found incapable of being detected."
     
    "Test aborted due to LTT."
    Honestly, I'd be embarrassed if...just nevermind man...I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone here with these kinds of responses, especially after all in this thread.



    You should have said instead, "Thank you for showing me how not to destroy my hardware."

    GMan, I don't think we are on the same wave length. I suggest to stop this discussion before it deteriorates.

    It's alright Wolfgang, I was waiting to see how long it was before he went back to the ways that have gotten him banned before (yes we knew it was TorrentG) and he has so he's gone.

    What is audacious is your sheer and utter arrogance. Even more audacious is your belief you deserve respect after being so disrespectful to others.

    You may be technically correct in some areas, but you are way off the mark in others.

    You've been banned before. So after you've finished huffing and puffing and feeling 'righteously disrespected' - take a moment to consider why you are banned so often.

    If after you've re-read your own posts you still struggle to comprehend your errors - seek a trained professional, for I am sure your online behaviour is not that different from offline, where no doubt you are equally disliked for similar traits.

    We don't care - but for your own personal well being, seek help. You need it.

    The point was the total number of writes SSDs will do before they fail.
    Heavy use would be more than +10 years.

    Guess your argumentative attitude blurs simple facts.
    This is just a discussion about SSDs, and some points of view supported with actual testing.
    It wasn't a 'challenge' just a supported clarification.

    Edit: I see the discussion is over...
