    exactly my point mike! thats why
    i said the chances of that happening are not very good. it would be nice if they did that though.
    SSD prices are dropping fast, considering their expected lifetime, even used one would be a good deal.

    well like i said my most important thing to get right now is a new backup device because my current one is shot and i wish they had ssd for backup. or wait is that a better idea to use a ssd for backup?

    Because of the price, it's still not practical for backups although their ability to withstand a lot of physical abuse it would be most welcome. For now, their speed is their biggest strength, than comes small power consumption which extends battery life on portable devices.

    They do make external ssd backup drives if you really wanted one. Prices vary Samsung I have seen a lot of them. So you can buy an SSD external backup drive if the price don't brother you. Just thought I'd let ya know.

    An SSD or even smaller HDD for OS would take a lot of load off the other disk with only data on it, make it used much less an so prolong it's life.

    well according to the level 2 tech manager i dealt with on the phone the drive they are sending me is made for longer life anways because it is a enterprise drive as in a business setting type drive and as such its built a bit tougher and is a bit more durable and is meant to last longer which is fine with me as i told the guy i talked to because i usually keep my computer on all the time.

    Ok, they are a bit slower than Black drives but of better quality. You're getting good deal because they are more expensive.

    Unfortunately SSD's fail too, had one do that recently ( only 3 years old ( can't RMA as I took it apart to see if there was a loose connection inside ) - the only problem with a failed SSD is that you will turn it on and nothing, at least with a mechanical drive you have warning signs.
