SSD Status Summary

I was relatively late to the SSD bandwagon — and so seemed to have dodged the worst of the unreliable phase.

Now I detest using a machine without one, and have collected quite a few over the past few years for my own and my family's machines. Thought I'd throw up the status of them all, including when they fail. So far I've had pretty good luck — worst problem was the DOA Patriot Blaze.
