I’m wondering whether there is known issues with these SSD's they seem to keep dying randomly I’ve RMA’d them a few times, but they don’t seem to last long before it happens again.
One replacement lasted less than a month before needed to be RMA'd again.
I’ve just had another one die and no longer be detected by the bios making this the 5th in less than a year which seems ridiculous they don’t get heavy use as I don’t use my computer much and I have all my libraries and games on an HDD to avoid writes to the SSD.

Wow, that doesn't sound very random. If I had 5 drives fail within a year I think I'd give up computers forever.
I am coming up on three yrs/12,000 hours on my one and only SSDPlus/120gb thanks for reminding me to do another S.M.A.R.T. test. It has been pretty much perfect the whole time though. I run tests about twice a year.
Do you have any more info to add about why the drives fail?

Do you use voltage outside the working range of the SSD?
The failure can be avoided with proper care while you the SSD.
I suggest you use the SSD according to the guidelines given for usage.
