Re: 10yr Warranty?

Given thant Samsung just announced yet another loss for thr 7th straight quarter, will they still be in this business(flogging whole drives rather than just the chips) in 10years?

Will any bits of consumer kit even be able to take 2.5in drives in say 5 years?

A valid point, however a long warranty period suggests they are certain the drive won't fail in that time. If the SSDs were truly unreliable, their own warranty claim stats would soon tell them. The beancounters wouldn't allow a 10 year warranty to be placed on a drive if there was a high probability of it failing in that time as the financial impacts of having a large batch of drives fail would be ruinous to the company.

Like all such kit, keep good backups and all will be fine.
