Submission + - Crucial M4 SSDs fail after 5200 powered on hours (crucial.com)

An anonymous reader writes: FYI, after losing several of these in the past two days I figured it would be helpful for others to realize that this bug may be causing problems.

Crucial M4 drives will just "go away" after their internal SMART counter hits 5200 hours, after a reboot they will function for about one hour before going away again.

They claim to have firmware in the pipeline but that will do little for you until they release it in the next few weeks.
