(let's ignore the significant reliability concerns and focus on the positives for once)
Four at the moment. Six if you count the two that I have installed in an old system sitting in my closet unused for the past 3 years or so.
One in my desktop, one in my HTPC, one in my laptop and one in my tablet. I'll never go back to a mechanical drive in any of my computers again. The only mechanical drives I still have are the six 1tb drives in my media server.
I have zero reliability concerns. I have yet to have any of my SSDs fail in any of my computers. If and when one does fail, no big deal. I'll just replace it with a new one.
At least nine by now

Got one 850 Evo, 250gb running two partitions for Windows/Linux. With a little over a TB of other data on other older drives this thing will probably last me a while.
P happy with it desu, wanted an SSD since Windows 7 came out.
I have a crucial mx100 iirc, 120gb, used it in an old chinkpad for a while but it's now a win7 drive in my desktop
Desktop also has a 250gb shitty 840 evo, the read speed issues aren't that bad anymore after an update last time I checked anyways, even without running magician (it's my linux drive)
And my t450s has a 256gb 850 pro
I've also owned a 60gb ocz agility, which was not great, but I've never had any problems with it either
I've bought 4 ssds.
Kingston 64gb - failed (read only)
Mushkin chronos 120gb - failed (bad controller)
Crucial 64gb - failed (bad firmware bug caused a completely fine gaming system to be junked by an ex after nobody could figure issue out)
Crucial mx200 250gb (currently in desktop)
All failed within 2 years.
3 x 16Gb, half size, weird PATA-over-pcie interface for Dell 910 netbook
1 x 32Gb Samsung, half size, same weird PATA-over-pcie interface for Dell 910 netbook
1 x 30Gb 2.5" KingDian S100 SATA II (not installed yet, probably going in an ASUS 1015PEM)
1 x 60Gb 2.5" KingDian S180 SATA III (not installed yet.
1 x 60GB KingDian S200 SATA III in my x200
1 x 64 Gb KingSpec Sata III mini-Pcie on the way from ebay, probably will be boot drive for x220
I love cheap chinese shit and laptops. I hate hdd spin noise
Just a Crucial M500 240GB. I was considering buying a 480GB or 960GB drive recently, but I couldn't really think of anything to use it for. Ended up just buying a 3TB WD Red for storage instead.
In order from oldest to newest:
>Crucial BX100 120GB
The boot drive for my main desktop. 1 year old.
>Crucial MX100 256GB
Boot drive for my daily driver laptop. 9 months old.
>Crucial MX200 250GB
mSATA complement to boot drive in laptop. 8 months old.
Boot times are godlike now. I plan on shitposting about them if more than one fails.
1st SSD : 64 gig Vertex. Back when OCZ was considered a good ssd brand, right when ssds first came to consumer market.
2nd SSD: Intel msata 16 gig ssd for laptop.
3nd SSD : 300 gig Crucial for laptop a year or so later.
4th SSD: 90 gig samsung ssd for server.
5th SSD : 120 gig samsung ssd for desktop.
6th SSD: 120 gig intel ssd for gaymen machine
7th SSD: 500 gig ssd kingston for desktop to replace storage drive, this black friday.
8th SSD: 120 gig cheapo ssd for dedicated swap drive.
9th SSD: 16 gig samsung ssd for 4 bucks, why not, it's handy.
That's of course, not counting the ssds I brought for my parents, nor the ssd in my chromebook, but I think that's all of them.
I like ssds.
Of them, not a single failure, all used daily except the intel msata, and the 16 gig samsung.
Also, that first OCZ drive cost me nearly 200 when I got it.
Now, I got that 500 gig drive for 100.
Meanwhile, hard drive prices are pretty much still hovering around pre flood level.
>Meanwhile, hard drive prices are pretty much still hovering around pre flood level.
They'll continue to stay there too since SSDs are flooding the market and stealing all the market share for consumer devices. The only place mechanical drives are still viable are in cheap, bulk storage situations like servers/archiving. And even there, they'll soon get undercut by SSDs and get pushed out of that space too.
I have two. One is a 128GB Samsung 840 Pro which I have in my desktop, and one is a 60GB OCZ Agility 3 I bought refurbished back in 2013 and used in a number of a different systems. The latter has held up surprisingly well. I didn't expect it to last this long.
2 x 500gb.
One for games.
Other for OS.
Fuck migrating though, shit looks easy till your dealing with a boot that doesnt just werk after cloning and switching.
Had to buy the easymode tool in the end.
