I've had 3 SSD's die out on me. tongue.gif

I don't want to invest a lot and have them die

 

What brands and models were they?

To be fair, the three were from the time where they were FOTM, all sandforce I thinks.

 

OCZ Agility 2 (120GB), Patriot Inferno (240GB), OCZ Vertex 3 on another computer (120GB).

 

Been happy with my Intel 520 240gb so far.

I'll fresh install OS X when I get back home and after I back up my dataz.

Wat, really?

 

The things Apple uses are proprietary *of course* so I'll be without a current computer for a few [insert unknown time interval here].

 

 

I can still use the Windows partition via Boot Camp, which is what I'm using at the moment.

Wait so what/how many storage drives are in your computer.

 

Use your Windows partition or something to check the status of your drive

It might be a good idea to call them up to see if they can prepare a replacement for you ahead of time, Apple are usually very good about these things.

It's an rMBP, you should know!

 

It's only got the main SSD.

School wi-fi throttling is fairly heavy compared to the original speeds but 10+ mbps down and up for the public wi-fi is pretty decent, but not for every single god damn student.

Use your Windows partition or something to check the status of your drive

There's the OS X partition (dead), Windows 7 partition (what I'm using), and the "recovery partition" (for restoring/reinstalling the original OS X operating system).

 

What partition manager/analyzer would I use? Windows's NTFS format can't write to the HFS+ Mac partition, but with the Boot Camp drivers, NTFS can read HFS+, and vice-versa.

Yeah that would probably be a good idea. :D

Really?

 

I had no problems? I tested speeds 3 times. Once first block, once in lunch, and once last block. I got about 50Mb/s down and 38MB/s up with 6ms ping to a server hoster in Boston.

 

The only 'slow down' for me was the firewall and their traffic monitor. This is really what most students seem to complain about. The actual dl and up speeds and ping aren't bad. It's that all data has to be analyzed out and in that really makes the 'lag' in speed.

 

oh, and congestion, yes, That too.

 

I was gaming today. Like multiplayer gaming for a solid hour. No problems there. Good ping. No problems

 

I just pop World of Tanks on and voila

I was talking about a general program that tells you the status of your drive. Not sure if the SSD's used support or if they even use SMART

 

Linux maybe? Or a program that can read both.

No need for any of that, I *think* you've already done the test (the one you showed a screenshot of) that Apple will ask you to do over the phone. You should be able to use your laptop until a replacement is available for you in store (chances are, they have heaps now in-stock since it's been a while since release).

Yes it has.

 

We are not able to link to a streaming or download side for these things here on HF.

Why's that?

 

I use usually Stuffit Expander for mac, sometimes The Unarchiver if stuffit fails for what ever reason.

and I'd use the "zip -e" terminal command for making encrypted archives or "zip -s" for split ones because I CBF'd to find an app to do this...

 

What does MIDI-like even mean?

MIDI is just a protocol of transferring music data....

(more recently stage control data as well, though DMX is still the dormant stage control data protocol)

I mean, that's like saying something sounds S/PDIF - like confused.gif

 

 

Indeed it is :D

 

This song... sounds awesome!

 

I've never been a fan of S-logic, it doesn't sound pleasant to my ears for whatever reason.....

:3 ahhhh. Since I haven't read the LN iono how it goes, but in the manga when she is writing the kanji for her name, she literally goes through the board with her finger I think lol

 

@defqon report his arse so ppl don't get scammed!

That's providing they decide to replace it though, right? They'll probably ask if I tried using the "recovery partition" to re-install the OS before they do any hardware things.
