Reply to the above two....we have not seen Intel or Crucial failures...although haven't seen numbers of those either. If I were to purchase one for my own self...I would get an Intel or Crucial drive...both are great brands. (and Crucial just has some insanely good sale prices going on) The brands that have been causing failures are lesser brands that we're seeing installed by the OEM of the appliances. I can't believe the brand name is escaping me now...as we just has a replacement box from their warranty come in yesterday or the day before.

From what I have seen on the web, Crucial has one of the highest failure rates.

"When it comes to enthusiasts, we really can't make the assumption that an SSD is more reliable than a hard drive. If anything, the recent flurry of recalls and firmware bugs should be proof enough that write endurance isn't our biggest enemy in the battle to demonstrate the maturity of solid-state technology"

With that being said, Crucial drives have a very bad rep on reliability.

For the limited scenarios we implement SSD drives, we've only used Intel, Samsung, and Crucial. I have a Crucial 128 GB drive in my 13" Vostro, and it has performed beautifully. Now, I've only had that laptop since January, so we'll see how it handles in the long run.

I've only used SSD in one enterprise environment so far, and that was against my recommendation. It's in a Dell R710 in a raid 10 for database. It's very fast, but I can't see a difference over 15k SAS arrays to make the cost worth while. My other concern is longevity and reliability. The storage choice for this server was about $5k over SAS, and we had to sacrifice some space.

Popped into my office to grab some things...just noticed the empty box from the SSD that was warranty replaced in the firewall appliance, brand name was "Transcend"...certainly not a brand I would have selected by choice for an SSD...although there are quite a big and solid brand in CF cards.
