Re: Latitude E5420 Killing SSDs

The SSD market is about where hard drives were 20-25 years ago -- there are major differences in reliability between brands.  Unfortunately none of them have been around long enough to develop a predictable track record, and the technology is constantly changing.

Though it might seem counter-intuitive that a device with moving parts (a standard hard drive) would be more reliable than one with none (SSD), it's actually in general, quite true - hard drives are more reliable than SSDs at the moment.
