One in the laptop, one in the micro server, and one hooked up to a USB3 adapter for a Win8-to-go install.

0. Cause the cost of them for how little storage you get makes them a bit of a joke.

I think I have at least 4. I was also a very early adopter to SSD's. Not sure I could handle an OS on a mechanical HD.

3. One in my laptop, two in my Desktop (one of which is refurbed, so got that nice and cheap)

How the hell do you "refurb" an SSD, reformat it? The term "refurbished" is thrown around way to loosely these days.

Hello,

 

None. Too expensive for the space they give.

1 in my own MBP

1 in my work MBA

2 in my iMac

1 in another laptop kicking around

So 5 in total.

I don't see the point of SSDs in my servers just yet.

Only one, if I only count those I actually went out and bought as a replacement for a spinning drive.  Otherwise, 3--the other two being what ships with my Surface RT and Pro tablets.

 

The one I bought definitely extended the life of the machine I put it in, but the Surface Pro took over that machine's role.  These days I just don't have the time/energy/motivation to take apart the older system, grab the SSD, and put it into another system I use.  So it's kinda collecting dust.  The other machine I use all the time is a VM host running about 20 virtual machines, so it's on 24/7, and wouldn't really benefit from faster boot times.

  • 512GB in rMBP
  • 256GB (Samsung 840 Pro) + 240GB (Kingston v300) in main desktop
  • 250GB (Samsung 840) in spare laptop, usually used as a media streamer

 

Always painful to use a computer without an SSD now, I get so impatient  :p

 

edit: Actually, 5, I still have a 128GB Samsung 830 somewhere

5 in my main desktop - 1 OS, 1 for various stuff (usually toss videos and stuff on it when I plan on editing a bunch), 3 in RAID0 for games n such

2 in my old gaming machine (now a file server....really need to sell it) - 1 OS and 1 other stuff

1 in main laptop

1 in Xbox 360

1 in HTPC

so 10 total currently :p Looking at getting another for my main desktop for TV recording - seems to push the mechanical HDD a lot when recording 2 or 3 shows while commercial detection app is processing them live

They're not really intended for storing a lot. It makes more sense to put your OS and main applications on it for much faster performance. It's a very good upgrade.

Keep your other files on a regular mechanical HD though.

They either replace the dead controller, fix the firmware, or replace bad flash chips typically.

Or they replace nothing because the user had no idea what they were doing and just sent a working drive back ;-)

Just one inside my desktop. Everything else is either an ancient laptop or a tablet now.

I came close to that one.  The firmware wouldn't update, though, so it wasn't so much that I had no idea what I was doing as that they had no idea what they were doing.

 

Ironically, the replacement drive had a dead controller, so I sent that back too.
