Hello, I had a hard drive failure this past weekend in my 3-year-old laptop, and for reasons I didn't have much cash to grab a temporary replacement HD. I wanted a solid state because I planned on using this (eventually) as a backup drive once I buy a new system.

At Staples I came across an HP Solid State Harddrive, 500 GB Sata III (2.5", 7mm), for $55. I noticed that they had an online-only code (code #21408 [staples.com]) for an additional $10 off, bringing the price down to $45. I went ahead with the free in-store pickup option, as I didn't want to spend the extra few bucks for free shipping (as well as having to wait a couple days).

I'll be honest, if I had until payday to replace this drive, I'd have gone with a Samsung or something, but so far it's done the trick for a good price.

I saw this earlier today also and almost bit, but after checking out the reviews it seems there is a fairly high failure rate. My money is gonna be either a Samsung for Crucial....

How can a SSD have a high rate of failure? That goes against the purpose of a SSD. But the price is really good. https://static.slickdealscdn.com/ima...2/applause.gif Btw, my 9-yr-old Sony Vaio's original HDD is still running fine after 9 years of daily use (of at least a few hours per day). How can that be? https://static.slickdealscdn.com/images/smilies/eek.gifhttps://static.slickdealscdn.com/images/smilies/eek.gifhttps://static.slickdealscdn.com/images/smilies/eek.gif
not like SSDs are magic. They can fail. And HDDs can last for a long time as well. It's all about how lucky you get. (or unlucky I suppose)

I still have a Sony SXRD tv. Hasn't been hit with the Optical Block issue which plagued the brand.

Unless they've changed something, these are not very good. The Pro models are better. Even better would be to grab a SanDisk, WD Blue, or Crucial for a couple bucks more.

This is DRAMless, S700 Pro is the model with DRAM.

How can you tell when your HD or SSD has failed?

When it stops working and your computer stops working because there's no working hard drive. laugh out loud But there are signs before that, like it runs really really slow, freezes often, flashes graphics and other stuff on the screen, and many more.

Been using my Samsung 840 EVO SSD for the past 5 year without any issues. Computer is on 12+ hours a day and put on standby when not in use. I've heard similar stories from friends. Definitely worth the small premium.

You can use a utility like glary utilities that cleans your computer and can do a hard drive check

Or you can run this at the command prompt
CHKDSK /f

This SSD has a reputation of failing. Search for reviews online. I took a risk and mine failed in 2 months. It's a rebranded Chinese drive. Buyer beware.
