Back in February 2011 I started replacing some of my hard drives with solid state drives.
The ssd’s made a tremendous impact on me, one brought my old laptop back to life one gave me wonderful frame rates when recording video in Opensim the third one made it even better in a new computer with a new and faster gpu.
The love lasted for about a year then things started to go a bit sour. I started to have problems booting my main computer the drive just wasn’t detected same for the 2nd computer, the laptop had no problems but also had very little use.
I overcome the problem with main computer by installing a new driver so far it look OK.
My 2nd computers ssd died today…. I have not said RIP yet because I will try everything in my might to revive it yes I have some data on it that I forgotten to back up. A hand modeled terrain for 4 sim and a few other bits.
This is what I wrote Feb 2011. The drive that failed is a OCZ vertex 120 gig drive my other OCZ Agility 3 is still working fine after I managed to install new drivers to it Link to how if drive has OS installed on it.
I don’t really think the brand of drive has much to do with if it is going to fail or not but that is only my opinion and I could very well be wrong. I still like ssd’s so much that I order another one to replace the one that failed This time I will try a SanDisk extreme 120 gig more than $100.00 less in price than the drives 18 months ago and faster speed I only hope the quality is a bit better as well.
Solid State drives and some problems.
