    Default Is Your SSD More Reliable Than A Hard Drive?

    Obviously, we know that SSDs still fail, though. All it takes is 10 minutes of flipping through customer reviews on Newegg's listings. But write-cycle exhaustion isn't the problem. Sometimes firmware is to blame. We know this because of the firmware updates vendors issue specifically targeting a documented problem. Other failures are electronic in nature. A capacitor or memory IC might go out, taking the SSD with it. Of course, we'd expect fewer issues with SSDs than hard drives, which have moving parts that invariably wear out over time. Do solid-state drives' lack of moving parts translate into higher reliability? Is the data on your SSD any safer than it would be on a hard drive?

    although SSD's may be little more reliable than HDD's , it think that still they aren't reliable. They are after all, electronics. Each time we switch on our PC, we know that there may be a chance that it may not boot up properly, or a device may fail on us. SSD Chips are just like USB drives, and memory cards, and it is proven that the data from memory cards and USB drives can be salvaged, through a more complicated process.. Those memory chips can be read under certain circumstances, which hold the data. There are various kinds of treatments to save recover data from such devices.. But to be on the safe side, you should always take regular backups (I have lost allot of precious data because of Hard drive failure, and i find it extremely difficult to trust a hard drive with my data again)
    I guess in the future we may have "Data Insurance" or something, LOL.

    Default Re: Is Your SSD More Reliable Than A Hard Drive?

    hmmm.. well it was an interesting topic on the homepage, so i opened it.and well since this a forum.. forum where discussions take place and opinions are shared, i thought i'd just give my views about hard dirves.. I've had 2 drives fail on my in the past two years, and such issues aren't very casually. Was making it prominent that SSD's are "supposed" to be reliable, but in fact they could be as bad as normal drives..

    Everytime I post something, i get notified that im trolling.. I just happen to post around 5 topics maybe each time i login after days.. And the topics that i comment on are on the main page, and if i dig up old topics, that would still be trolling .. :S And it's not like im spamming the place up.. :S

    --- That's just my view on what i think about this whole situation

    Ok, thanks allot !.. Sorry for the problems i've caused. Will be more selective from now on..Don't worry i wont post so much.. It would be nice to have some discussion topics around here, to have a chit chat about the current affairs, and a not so formal-ish thread or something. It's fun to just goof around a bit. And yeah, nice avatar AHAHAH..

    Default Re: Is Your SSD More Reliable Than A Hard Drive?

    after reading all those pages his summary

    Wrapping Up

    Reliability is a sensitive subject, and we've spent many hours on the phone with multiple vendors and their customers trying to conduct our own research based on the SSDs that are currently being used en masse. The only definitive conclusion we can reach right now is that you should take any claim of reliability from an SSD vendor with a grain of salt.
    Giving credit where it is due, many of the IT managers we interviewed reiterated that Intel's SLC-based SSDs are the shining standard by which others are measured. But according to Dr. Hughes, there's nothing to suggest that its products are significantly more reliable than the best hard drive solutions. We dont have failure rates beyond two years of use for SSDs, so its possible that this story will change. Should you be deterred from adopting a solid-state solution? So long as you protect your data through regular backups, which is imperative regardless of your preferred storage technology, then we don't see any reason to shy away from SSDs. To the contrary, we're running them in all of our test beds and most of our personal workstations. Rather, our purpose here is to call into question the idea that SSDs are definitely more reliable than hard drives, based on today's limited backup for such a claim.
    Hard drives are well-documented in massive studies because they've been around for so long. We'll undoubtedly learn more about SSDs as time goes on. We leave a standing invitation to Intel, OCZ, Micron, Crucial, Kingston, Corsair,Mushkin, SandForce, and Marvell to provide us with internal data demonstrating reliability rates for a more comprehensive investigation.
