Any mass produced electronics device can and will (eventually) fail. But the SF12xx are failing at an unusually high rate (and had a rep for failing often to begin with). Personally, I dont think SF fully fixed all the 'issues' with their design before they pushed out the SF2 series. With that being said, most wont fail during warranty period. Most peeps just dont stress their drives enough to kill them. The ones that do fail...are usually the worst of any batch. Thankfully LSI bought out SandForce so I honestly doubt the 3rd gen SF controller will have nearly as many problems (or take as long to fix) as the 1st and 2nd gen controllers!
