Backblaze is an American recognized company that deals with data storage for home and business users as well as data storage in the cloud. Since it uses thousands of solid state drives to store customer data, it can certainly give us insight into which of these types of media is the most reliable today. Of course, hard drives of different capacities and different models were also used. Drive reliability measurements were taken from the first quarter of 2019 to the fourth quarter of 2021 or over a three-year period.
According to research by Backblaze, the least reliable SSDs are Crucial with 500GB and Seagate with 2TB. Their failure rate in 2021 was 43 percent and 29 percent, respectively. Even Micron’s 240GB solid-state drives didn’t shine, recording a wearability of 7.63 percent. It should be noted that only a few SSDs were tested for a relatively short time.
On the other hand, Seagate’s Solid State 500GB drive did a great job. He had no flaws. Immediately behind it, we find a 500 GB Dell drive. The latter also did not report any malfunctions in 2021.
