I've run many many different SSDs at work, and the only ones that have held up are the Intel SSDs.

All other have failed within a year under load. Literally, we've had a 100% failure rate of other brands. I've never seen any other product fail so regularly and certainly.

We've tried Patriot, Samsung, Sandisk, OCZ, Crucial and several other brands with various controllers and size.

Even worse, we run them in raid 1 or 5 and have had a lot of simultaneous failures. It seems like some of these models give you X number of writes and then die like they are on a timer.

I recommend an Intel 320 model, it is literally the only SSD I have found which is even remotely reliable. No failures in over a year on 50+ servers!
