    SSD People.

    Anyone else here using SSD in extreme cold temperature? (-20*C or lower)
    I've been using my desktop wheel bearing hd for quite sometimes and it works great, unless its well below -30*C. Thinking ssd would solve my problem, i bought patriot ssd over boxing day. The first one was totally crapped, i couldnt even format it, so i got it rma'ed. The second one was all good, installed windows fine, everything good for TWO days, then the hard drive becomes totally useless like the first one. (cant access/format/or anything)
    So anyone else got a different brand that's around the same price range that works well?

    I've got a Patriot working well.

    Drop up to Killington the other week in -30F wind chills, so probably around -10 air temp. No problems.

    My car on the other hand has very little heat... lol

    There is a lot of problems with cheap MLC SSD... Only MLC which work without freezing problems is Intel X25-M. All others have bug in controller... Other option is any SLC SSD...
    Good luck with yours...

    yeah i noticed that difference as well, only problem is SLC at the moment is quite expensive.
    So i guess i'll just have to wait until their prices goes down, just like MLC.

    OCZ just released a new Apex budget series of MLC SSD to replace the current Core series. I think I read somewhere that the current stuttering issues from the Jmicron controller should be addressed with the new line. But I would wait and keep checking to see when there are deals. Just a while back there was a 64G for $130CAD shipped.

    that is one wicked deal, too bad they only ship US. Anyone else here that live in canada or have similar winter temps? ( -30*C or lower)
    I looked at ridata ssd, and they makes some extreme temp (-40*C) ssd hard drive, but they're hella expensive though. Their non extreme temp ssd are also very cheap (~80bucks/32gb). Unless someone else have better experience with another brand, i think i'm going to wait until they perfect MLC, or SLC becomes cheaper. Also, when i had the patriot HD installed, i had no performance issues, partly because i just clone my original hard drive instead of re-installing windows.

    I found a chinese SSD on ebay that has operating temp of -10*C which is pretty good.
    anyone else have experience or opinion on this?

    Heya Guys,
    I use the OCZ Vertex 60Gig, Commell LS-372, 1.80G Core 2 Duo cpu, 2gig ram, nLite'd XP with SP3, and NO stuttering issues.

    To windows desktop bootime around 21sec (from hitting power button)

    Nice and easy, and no issues with cold/heat.
