So this seems scary and that SSD can be more prone to "bricking" than spindle drives.
THE INFO: If the power stops suddenly - as in power outage - or pulling the plug by accident etc. an SSD can get 'permanently bricked' with no ability of recovery. This was try for the 5 drives above. (BTW: there was no word on whether they were idle or running at the time...)
Curious to hear your experiences with this....

Yes, that is indeed possible due to the somewhat sensitive nature of all solid state devices. Note that the same can happen to spindle drives, but the odds of data loss from the spindle drive may be less if you consider whether the data are recoverable and not the cost of recovery. Note this same bad event could happen to your computer if you do the same thing and have no backup support. And, this is why you make backups.
If you have technical questions related to installing SSDs please ask them. However, these are not open discussion boards, and we appreciate it if you don't try to initiate such open discussions. You can check this out in the Terms of Use - Apple Support Communities - Terms of Use.
