Failure rate numbers for 45,000 Intel ssd drives:

To my knowledge, no other ssd manufacturer has published a similar study. That can only mean one thing: Their failure rates are higher. Otherwise, they would publish the data and issue press releases stating that they are every bit as reliable as Intel and are less expensive as well.

There isn't much good data on the other brands but if you look at what is out there you will find that the the top tier ssd's other than Intel are about as reliable as a spinning disk. The bottom tier cheapo ssd's are worse.

I guess you missed the post where I pointed the OP to an Intel ssd in his price range...
