Seems like these might not be all they’re cracked up to be.

I’ve wondered about these since first reading about how they worked. Basically, these solid state drives, or SSDs, are giant flash drives. And, apparently, just like flash drives, they tend to slow down with use. Maybe I’ve just had too much bad luck with flash drives going suddenly strange and needing a reformat, but I wonder what else might go wrong with them in time?
