all three pc here in my house have a Patriot. #1 = 1 Trancend SSD (boot drive), 1 Patriot SSD. #2 = 1 Patriot SSD (boot drive), 1 HDD. #3 = 1 Patriot SSD (boot drive), 2 HDD.
will not say it's the best. Have only tried Patriot and Transcend, so I can't make comparison to other brands.
no problems, it's almost three years now. All SSD I own are still working (lol).
but well, it's still up to your luck.. SSD or HDD can sometimes randomly die. Also don't fill it up too much, leave enough free space.
