Specific application environments such as temperature and duty cycle will affect the overall reliability.
Specifications provided by SandForce.
Temperature reporting is currently an unsupported feature because due to the operating characteristics of SSDs, it is highly unlikely one would ever exceed an OWC Mercury SSD's stated operating temperature ceiling of 158F/70C. However, we are looking into supporting this feature in the future via a firmware update. Firmware updates can be found here:https://eshop.macsales.com/tech_center/OWC/SSD.
