  1. I have a Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240GB SSD which I've used as my boot drive for the last two years. Recently I began getting BSOD's when trying to write new data of any significant size to the drive. Note: The drive got to 75% capacity before I ever had any problems. The strange thing is that all the SMART data is green across the board, the drive passes all self-tests, and it reports 100% drive life left. There are never any errors found with chkdsk /r, even after the system crashes trying to write something. It passes BurnInTest sequential data write/read but fails with the same BSOD (0x000000F4) when testing using random write, random seek testing. I duplicated these same BurnInTest results on a desktop PC with the drive installed but not being booted. Only difference is when this machine crashes, there is no BSOD - it just freezes at some point during the randomized BurnInTest. Could the end of the drive just be bad flash memory? Could this happen without tripping any of the drive's self monitoring capabilities and not show as bad sectors in chkdsk /r? This is only the second SSD I ever purchased, and the first failure I've experienced to date. Is this as strange a behavior for SSD's as it seems?
