Particularly when it gets to our level. No mention I saw of cost.

As long as the cost isn't outrageous, I'm willing to pay extra for such a feature. It can definitely be a real headache saver if it delivers as promised.

That is pretty cool.

Knock on wood, but I've had almost no SSD failures in any of my PCs or customers.

I had an Intel SSD that would freeze for 30 seconds randomly from new, which got returned (2014).

I ran across the firmware bug in the Crucial M4 that caused crashing due to it unable to cope with the stat of being on beyond a certain number of hours, but an update fixed it.

But no data loss yet. And I've used Samsung (evo & pro), Crucial/Micron, Adata, SandDisk, Silicon Power, Mushkin, Kingston, and Intel (once...)

As long as you don't run it near or beyond it's write endurance rating and you don't have a junk power supply blow it up, then you should be fine. Not sure what unlucky souls claim Hard Drives are more reliable these days! :)

I'm in the same boat. I started out with Plextor, but have consistently used Samsung since. I cannot recall a single time I've experienced any type of SSD data loss or failure.

That makes 3 of us.  Samsung EVO 960 M-2 500g and an 250 EVO for storage.
