    This SSD is at least 100€ overpriced, compared to other options. Is it good? Maybe. Do you need it to endure a life time? Certainly not.
    I think it's adequate for people who work with large video files and need the performance to edit daily basis.
    For the average consumer, just stick with 1/2 Tb more affordable units.

    A nuclear power plant would meltdown in minutes if the control rods failed or all the water went away.

    What ever happens you are covered by a 5 year warranty which is fine. I don't expect many HDDs to last that long which is why you only get a year or two at most with mechanical drives.

    for hdd only low-end model(standard end user drive) that give 2years warranty, which probably the one you been using, not sure with any hdd that have less warranty than that... never using those

    standard warranty for mid model 3years, high&enterprise model 5years
    https://support-en.wd.com/app/Warranty_Policy
    https://www.seagate.com/support/warranty-and-replacements/
    WD RED/ironwolf 3years
    all enterprise model, WD BLACK/REDpro/ironworlf (including barracuda-pro) 5years

    now, SSD last much longer, if maker(like corsair) that confident then why not extend warranty last longer like 10years (or the TBW value reached, whichever one comes first.) that should looks whole better to consumer no ?
    corsair high-end power-supply have 10years warranty. heck their DRAM stick been lifetime warranty

    in school. either math/physic class, but dont remember if it was about statistics/random or about safety/nuclear tech etc,,
    couple decades ago :D


    warranty does not equal working drive hours, nor do i get my data back.
    as any other man made product it can fail much sooner than expected.
    not talking about being a bad product, but random/chance, so i stopped looking at those nbrs outside being an indicator.
    how many fans are rated 150000 and fail below 50000.
