    It's a bit worrying considering in googles recent report most SSD failures are a result of age and not usage. Can you imagine losing 15 terabytes worth of data? You would definantley have to raid these which may not be viable considering price.

    Maybe it's too early in the morning, but something there doesn't add up...

    512 x 256gb chips = 15.36tb ?
    256gb dies x 16 = 512gb ?

    Yeah, it's confusing, but I bet they meant gigabit :)

    The first part doesn't work out to 15.36TB but could be because they have spare space for the dying flash in the future??? (maybe someone has the real answer to this)

    but the second equation works out perfectly.

    256gb (gigabit) X 16 = 512GB (gigabyte)

    Was google's report on enterprise level SSD's? At this point you are pretty much crazy to use anything above a 1TB ssd in non-RAID on a desktop computer. These are enterprise level and would be put in some type of RAID or equivalent setup.

    From what I understand you do not lose it, you just lose ability to write onto it.

    So you will always be able to recover your data, unless what I read was incorrect?

    Brand/model specific.

    In some cases, when a certain failure rate has been reached, the SSD can kick into a "read only" mode. In other cases it just keeps going until it reaches a flat-out failure.

    Except it's not. The two products are geared towards different usages. An enterprise SSD is designed to respond to lots of concurrent requests of data so it emphasizes reading speeds over writing ones. This is why this one has Random Read IOPS up to twice your drive but Random Write IOPS less than half.

    But I wouldn't worry about you making a rash decision and taking the plunge. Seeing how the PM863 with only 3.84TB of storage has an MSRP of $2,200, this one might comes at the cost of a small car :banana:

    I value my left nut, and my right one for that matter. For the target market it's probably a great solution, as long as the price is justified and good value even when scaled down to equivalent smaller capacities.
