Still can read from it, they are going to do read tests for a while to see how long it can be read from.

It started dying on page Page 55 post #1360.

I have read that that is typical for SSDs.

Well, ssd can use all usb 3.0 speed, plus external ssd would be more safe storage.

After checking the USB 3.0 flash drive prices, except for size, an external USB 3.0 SSD might be a good idea.

A SSD can use all the USB 3.0 speed and then some. What a waste of hardware capability. The USB won't get anywhere near SSD performance. Might as well use a HDD and save the money. I'm not sure what you mean by "more safe". Safe from what? Theft?
