The one I bought for my brother 3 years ago that died in under 2 was from a little PC repair shop while I was on vacation in Nashville and I don't remember the name brand. The one I bought 2 years ago that died a month ago was from Fry's and was Patriot brand. The one I bought that died in 4 weeks after long 4K video processing was PNY and I bought it from the nearby Best Buy. Didn't someone here previously mention every name brand dying after a hardcore write test? Are you convincing yourself that only bad name brand SSDs are shitty? That's what everybody does when they hear about one failing.
