2 out of 5 eggs Reliability questionable 10/19/2010

This review is from: Patriot Torqx PFZ128GS25SSDR 2.5" 128GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Really good when it works - fast read / write, low power everything you'd expect from a SSD

Cons: Now after not quite a year of limited use the OS has started to do strange things - random crashes, apps disappearing etc.
Traced it down to corrupted sectors / blocks on the SSD. Ran CHKDSK a few times to clean it up but within hours same again. Finally the BIOS wouldn't even recognize the drive.

Other Thoughts: I really wanted this drive to work well and be reliable - I was disappointed - now just waiting for an RMA to start the replacement process, but seriously considering ordering an Intel (or other brand) SSD as I doubt I'll be able to trust the replacement drive on a 'mission critical' machine.
This assumes that Patriot stands by their product and provides a replacement in a timely manner.....
