Thread: slow flash drive that will fail in less than a year

  1. #1

    Default slow flash drive that will fail in less than a year

    Why can I buy a very good SSD, that will last several years of hard daily use, for $30; but the same $30 gets a junky, slow flash drive that will fail in less than a year?

    Hi
    Different chipsets, more designed for portability and transferring files.....

    Check if any smart output, eg;

    Code:
    smartctl -d scsi -a /dev/sdc

    The above device gets written to every two hours (Just documents and system configuration) with cronopete, seems to be running fine.
