Got this lil shit today. Boot speeds great. Shutdown near instant. Progs load as if minimized. Using my chinkt420 is way better.
Pretty good meme I'd say. Don't understand everyones problem with these.
>tfw haven't checked SSDLife since november
>tfw I can still feel secure
feels good mang
I'm thinking about buying an SSD but I need some questions answered if anyone ITT can.
1. Do they still brick if they suddenly lose power? Bad weather time here and I often leave my machine on and go away, last thing I want is an outage to turn my ssd in to a shitty paper weight.
2. Write count, I download about 1GiB a day of videos to watch in the evening. How will this impact life of the drive? Should I buy an external spinnin cube for media?
It's bad because the controller randomly shits itself when you so much as sneeze at it, not because of NAND endurance. They don't make their own NAND, anon. It's mostly all the same shit inside SSDs.
I'm using a literal meme tier SSD from an old RAID. Still works fine
>ssdlife doesn't work with my sandisk ssd
Mine didn't brick when it lost power suddenly when I did a hard reset something did fuck up. I couldn't load windows. I figured that windows just became corrupted and tried to use another computer to salvage the data. The ssd is still detected by windows but trying to access it by file explorer causes it to hang and and eventually get an invalid path error. Disk management detected my drive as raw format instead of NTFS. I managed to salvage the data using a pirated version of easeus data recovery wizard but the stupid program froze for 4 hours before the drive popped up. The only reason I got my data back was because I had to leave so I didn't touch the program. Or else I would have just closed it after a few min. Google is saying its either the file system being corrupted (forgive my ignorance but I have no idea what that means) or the controller failed.
In short, don't put anything but programs on your SSD. I was an idiot and stored a bunch of school related files and scientific papers I paid for on my SSD. I believe HDDs do not have the same issues with sudden power loss that SDDs have.
>Write count, I download about 1GiB a day of videos to watch in the evening.
These people have actively gone out of their way to write as much as possible as fast as possible to these drives. They lasted way longer than their advertised lives, you'd have to be using an INSANE amount of data to kill an SSD through writes.
That could just as well have happened with a HDD. Return rates show that SSDs are more reliable than HDDs.
That being said, you should always, ALWAYS have a backup of your stuff. If not your entire drive then certainly work or school related stuff and personal stuff you can't recreate.
>not conservative estimation
You will die before your SSD guys...
that's what I meant. It's similar in speed to my friends sandisk SSD, so I guess either mine is fine and his is shite. Still faster than a HDD
Like I said, it was in a SSD raid and my mate thought it was dead so I got it for free. Worked first time
This is what I'm worried about happening and it's getting me paranoid, I don't have anything special that I could lose but it's more the inconvenience of it suddenly being dead and having to wait to hopefully get it replaced or pay out for anew one.
How good is the protection? I've read Crucial use HW protection and Sumsung SW protection. I was planning on getting an m.2 crucial 250G.
There are lots of reports still but none of these fucks mention their drives or anything so it's hard to work out what they're using, how old it is and what kind of protection (if any) it has.
I'm not even sure if my drive is "dead". I'm still in the process of recovering the data. I've read that SSDs that fuck up from power loss may also be caused from firmware corruption and the fix is to just flash your SSD.
I'm not sure about sandisk specifically, but it seems most don't cover data loss since data recovery quotes start at about 500$ and can go upwards to 1000$ for a single non raid SSD.
Seems ok for me. I have a 500 GB for backup files and a 2 TB for everything else (Games, torrents, etc). I don't really run anything off my SSD for the most part. Honestly, without Windows operating off my HDD, it almost seems to perform faster.
>tfw I've literally never worried about my SSD's dying
>tfw I'm SSD only
and here is the iSSD in my samsung ultrabook where the kingston currently resides
Can SMART data be incorrect lol?
>SSD work time is less than half of mine
>Powered on count is less than half of mine
>Trim also enabled
>Estimated lifespan is still shorter
I don't get it. Strange.
By my math I've got about 40 years before I finally get a girlfriend.
dat 26TB written. What do you use the drive for?
I dunno about him, but I've got around 21TB written to my >>52405208
120gb 840 evo and I use it as my OS drive, along with some programs.
At one point it was my only drive so there was a lot of data shuffled around.
What are the critical specs for an SSD? I'm in the market for one for the boot times, because I dual boot wyndohs and lyenucks. I know nothing about them, though. They're flash memory, like usb sticks, right?
Good to see mine isn't out of the ordinary, never had a basis for comparison. I was worried data deduplication was adding a lot of writes to my drive since it's done post-process. The nearly 2:1 write read ration was tripping me out.
>that and every steam game to come out in the last year being 60+gb
I know what you mean, that's why I started deduping my games partition. Fuck every little bit helps with these things until those 4TB drives become the norm.
>tfw you survived the super secret update that had a chance to brick your drive
There's no problem. You are using them correctly as bootup drives and work drives.
The problem is the idiots who say SSDs are a replacement for HDDs, and vice versa, which is basically mixing apples and oranges.
SSDs are good as engines but shit as storage, while HDDs are good as storage but too fucking slow as engines. SSDs will never outdo HDDs in terms of long-term storage because of the way they store data, while HDDs will never outdo SSDs in speed because of the physical and thermodynamic limitations of how they read/write data.
There are exceptions though, as the way SSDs cycle data in combo with the limited cycle quantity, burns the fuck out of an SSD when it comes to shit like webscraping and RSS feeds.
Never have an RSS feed/Webscraping program run via SSD, or you are courting a loss of money.
What about other specs? I'm asking what specs I should look for: read/write speed, different classes of device, NAND (I don't know what this is but I see it discussed), size, specific brands, etc.
>Buy Samsung EVO, constant firmware problems for the first 6 months.
>Tfw this thing is now showing 380-420Mb/s read speeds despite the fixes.
Next time I buy an SSD I'm not going to get one of the cheaper models.
Can't wait for the price drops that are going to happen this year when companies start pushing their new models out on the market.
i gots a t420 and evo too
love them memes
This; it depends which HDDs you're coming from.
840 Evo didn't really feel much faster than my 2x600gb Velociraptor raid 0. It certainly wasn't worth the ridiculous cost per GB (it was a new drive, so the 840 slowdown bug would not yet have happened).
I'm sure the SSD would be far better than some outdated WD green, but no one should be running programs from those anyway.
>implying I didn't suffer with those when you did
Pentium 2, 4 megs of video memory, nigguh. All i needed to play Ultima online.
And yet, I still know the differences between MLC and TLC because I can use google and you're apparnetly to stupid or prideful.
>thinking pentium 2 was suffering
>using google to learn shit instead of knowing what tech sites to go to
fuck son how short of a period of time have you been here?
nobody gives a fuck if you know the difference in MLC and TLC. nobody. so go the fuck to bed.
Samsung and Kingston. ANd one other Ican't remember.
None of the tests done are really indicative of that though
so dont bother even looking it up. all of the tests were debunked in other articles as being erroneous and totally unscientific
the other being intel, obviously. if you can afford a 1.2 TB intel SSD you wouldn't be questioning any write endurance, you'd be signing appropriation checks to intel from your business.
How good is Hyper X Fury 240GBs?
I want to buy a good reliable SSD and this one has amount of storage I need currently. I also have a 1TB HDD so don't worry if I will be running short on storage.
first time checking.. I don't think i like this.
Gonna buy another ssd for laptop.
tossing up between intel or a crucial mx200
oh sorry, i meant ssd disks.
YOU HAPPY NOW? YOU CONDESENDING ASSHOLE
10 year warranty, and tests have shown the pro edition to withstand insane levels of writes before they die.
the evo versions ive heard both bad and good things about, but nothing defintive.
