Jeff, That is exactly what I'm seeing as well. As an early adopter of SSD's I've found the consumer grade stuff dies in non-fun ways. The total failure of the drive leads me to believe it is a manufacturing problem not a problem with the NAND flash chips themselves. If you look at the specs most of them are rated at 10^15 on uncorrectable errors, same as their HDD brethren. What most companies won't tell you is the hard failure rate in the field. This alone is why I warn people away from putting consumer grade SSD's in their servers. I blog about storage at http://www.sqlserverio.com and cover SSD stuff quite a bit.
