    6 months? That's the youngest failure I've seen so far, guess that means the problem wasn't limited to the first couple batches. At least you can get it replaced for free.

    same here, my MBA SSD drive, just die

    the main problem is not even the cost, is the lost information... i think apple already knows this, right?

    I just fitted a replacement SSD from OWC.  Pretty easy to do and alot cheaper than getting it done by apple.

    Hola les comento algo Apple a lanzado un programa de sustitucion de unidades MacBook Air de Flash (disco duro) la cual si tu equipo es comprado en las clausulas espuesta por Apple va ser reparado totalmente gratis, para verificar eso lleven su equipo a un Servicio Técnico de Apple para mayor informacion.

    Just visited the lads at Castle Hill (Aus) store, and organised replacement under Apple support program. They are replacing it with a Samsung SSD instead of the Toshiba (phew). Apparently a little delay on parts, but said it shouldn't be too long.

    Hi,

     

    I have the same system output for the SSD as the original poster, AntonMaloff. Because I'm using an USB portable hard drive to boot up the Macbook Air which I bought when it first announced (June, 2012), I'm unable to install the SSD Firmware Update 1.1. The installer states that this computer does not need this update.

     

    I'm assuming that because the startup disk is not an Apple hardware, the update cannot detect the SSD hardware. Or my SSD has already dead, it is unable to detect it. Am I right?

     

    Because this Macbook Air has out of warranty (SSD was broken on July 2013, exactly 13 months after the purchase), does anyone know I'm eligible for a free SSD replacement?

     

    I'm afraid that the Apple representative cannot understand me over the phone because of my speech disability, so I would like to try on the support forum.

     

    Please help. Thanks!

     

    Update: Here is the full system report of SSD for my Macbook Air in case there are some differences from AntonMaloff. Thanks.
