[QUOTE=TSJnachos117;2673063]What really worries me about SSDs is that noone seems to be researching into increasing the lifespan of these devices. Rather, they are ultimately concerned about speed. If I buy an SSD today, I don’t want to be forced to buy a replacement in the next few years.
Of course, I’m sure companies like Seagate are counting on this, as they probably want us to have to buy more from them.[/QUOTE]
The reliability has improved greatly in recent times. They’re rated at 1 million hours and many SSD’s are coming with 5 year warranties. Naturally, you will still backup your data so why so such a concern? Mechanical hard drives can and do fail within a few years of buying, as do power supplies, graphics cards and pretty much everything else in your case.
