Or how about paper tape? How many miles of paper to encode a blu-ray? I remember booting an old PDP-8 from paper tape in high school (it was old then).

LOL, my first HDD at home was a 5MB full height that cost $100. Our HS in the boonies didn't even have a computer. The first computer in college used punch cards.

I have a 128GB SSD in my work computer now but it doesn't feel particularly fast and this crash on sleep mode does bother me a bit. Sometimes the drive LED keeps flashing and the screen didn't respond. I have no idea whether it is due to Win7, MS Office or the SSD doing erase, which is verrrrry sloooow. In contrast, the single platter 250GB HDD in my Thinkpad at home isn't a sloth either.

I originally started to use SSDs mainly in kids' carry around computer so they are more rugged. You can drop one running and it wouldn't bat an eye. In PATA age I even tried using PATA-CF adapter and relatively fast and large CF cards.

What SSD?

What firmware?

Does not sound like it's set up properly. You in ACHI mode? What hardware?

Thinkpad T420s with a Samsung SSD. Yes, in AHCI mode.

Actually more than one computer exhibit this problem. Almost always during sleep mode. I suspect this is related to TRIM operation in process and the computer shuts down.

Google your issue. Your prob right about trim and sleep but there is a few different solutions I think.

No reason to live with crashes.

I have only used one SSD in a build so far, my video editing PC. I have bought another to use in my rebuild or new HTPC. Not sure which I'll be doing yet. But I will still have mechanical HDDs for storage. So I couldn't take part in the poll. There is no option for my choice.

Sorry. Lack of foresight.
