    I just wanted to talk about a situation I had with a Western Digital Blue SSD. In 2020 I installed this SSD in a laptop. At first it was very fast. But that laptop saw less use for a year. Now when I need to use the laptop the SSD slowed to a crawl. Turns out it's a common issue for WD drives. Why is there no lawsuit ? To fix it I had to clone it with Acronis then wipe it and then put the data back and then it was back to normal. I've never had that problem with regular hard drives going bad so fast. I have a WD 640GB hard drive from 2009 that is still going strong with only one bad sector. I think SSD manufacturers are using cheaper parts that are really bad. So I think SSD are misleading because what they sell you is speed. But how long is that speed going to last ? Months ? A year ?

    You say it is a common issue for WD drives, but also imply SSD manufacturers are culpable, presumably including other manufacturers.

    Is it one?
    Is it tuther?
    is it both?
