I have seen pretty much damaged SSD in forums. I don't know why people trust in this technology...

I think data is important. So I prefer not to loose data and use HDD

:pfp:

I've used over 40 SSD's and over 40 HDD's, and I've never had to RMA SSD's because of failure, whereas I've had to RMA at least 5 HDD's. Your data will be more secure in a SSD than a HDD because there's no moving parts and minimal heat.

Well in theory they're more reliable but with all the different firmwares and controllers every which way they still have their faults.

Mayhaps, but I've used a variety of different controllers and firmware versions (I update them all the time).

Reminds me to check and see if there are updates for my Vertex and my Kingston, and to go see if I can find any 240GB drives for my laptop in my price range (and then move its 750GB into my external enclosure)

If you're looking for a 240GB drive, new or used, just let me know. I've got a few.
