I’ve not had any trouble with the three I have, 2 of them are over 4 years old, High end Kingston 128GB, and My laptop has an mSata 256GB stick in it. All are boot devices, and see daily use.


What OS was running on the failed drives? Mine have all been win 7/10

To the Braintrust:

I've now seen another "sudden, total, and without warning" failure of a new SSD. (Both in computers I have at home.)

When I say "No warning", I mean it was running one moment, then the next, BSOD! In both cases, the drive utterly "disappeared", and no attempt to access it works... USB external adapter, move to another machine, etc. It is utterly and completely DEAD!

How many others have seen this kind of dramatic and sudden death? Both drives in this scenario were 60 Gig, and were less than 30% full.

One of the drives, I took apart to see if perhaps a cap had exploded, or there was any sign of heat stress, etc... but no, it looked absolutely pristine.


Thankfully, I have backups! This kind of failure just bumps-up the urgency of making backups more often!
