20 months ago.

(Lifespan=15 months) Was using in Orico SATA3 to USB3 enclosure (orico 2588us3) for HD video editing with a gaming laptop with 2 internal SSDs. This was the drive for the source video. IT worked reasonably for about 15 months. Yesterday it began to malfunction for a few seconds while the laptop was rendering video output. This resulted in the appearance of a default image and no sound for several seconds in the output. Before regenerating the output, I decided to copying 6 additional MP4s to the Mushkin ssd. It died in the middle of this transfer, causing the computer to be difficult to reboot. luckily I only had a couple of video files on it that weren't backed up.
