    SSD for Media Cache and Preview files ...bad idea?

    Dvico Level 1

      Hi guys!

      Today I killed my 3rd SSD.I used both of them for store Media cache and preview files with Premiere Pro and After Effects CS5.5.

      1st was OCZ Vertex 3 240GB than I replaced to a new one.After few weeks later the 2nd OCZ Vertex 3 dead.

      And now Corsair Force 3 is gone.I dont worry because all of them still in warranty period, and I havebackup from my projects.

      Just asking maybe these SSD-s is not stable for this thing? I mean often write and read datas?

      Maybe better to replace to a simple HDD (maybe 10000rpm)?

      Or just I was that lucky guy who catch 3 defected ssd-s in the last six months..:-(

          No, I don't think that you killed them; the OCZ Vertex 3 series, and many other SSDs using the same Sandforce controller, are having way too many issues where Adobe is not being used at all.


          Do check your firmware on these drives too; there have been lots of updates trying to make these seemingly seriously flawed drives work more reliably.
