Interesting? For a "works for me!" anecdote? Really mods, DaFuq? What is your experience with SSDs, 1? 2 maybe?
Well I have to have dealt with hundreds in the last couple years at the shop and its pretty damned obvious they still haven't fixed the driver controllers as they are still a complete and total CRAPSHOOT.
We have about 1100 of several brands and types deployed in our organization, and have seen a lower than hard disk failure rate, even on the cheap OEM Lite-On drives. How's that for an anecdote? (I do agree about the controller problems - we had to push out a firmware update for those Lite-Ons to fix a Deep Sleep issue.)
