I believe it is 20GB per day for 5 years = 36.5TB

Minimum useful life 5 years
The drive will have a minimum of five years of useful life under typical client workloads with up to 20 GB of host writes per day.
My X25-V 40GB has 1TB after one year, by Intel's standard I'm good for 36.5 years

On the XS endurance thread the Kingston(Intel) 40GB drive is at 110TB, MWI 40%, and still going strong.
Guess mine will be good for 150+ years

Think I'm safe leaving my page file on the SSD, have since I got it. At that time many 'experts' were saying just leave it on there. Now I see why.
I have read so many posts (most of them not here) with ways of moving just about every possible write off of the SSD.
Thought it was a bit extreme at the time, but you never know until someone shows you

I think they will get tired of running the test before the drives wear out, my bet is 1+PB of writes can be reached.
This is what the other two tests that were linked made it to, after a year of heavy writes.

Interesting discussion on the OCZ v2 SF controller, they moved it to another thread as it was getting a bit long and... let's say, a debate.

Yeah I read one fellows posts the last few days. He insinuates he knows how to fix the problem with the Vertex 2 since the problem started weeks ago but has not posted until a few days ago.

He still hasn't posted the solution. Just making rambling useless posts.

Appears to be a U.S. Congressman in the making.
Might be running for Wieners empty seat.

The one thing that is safe to assume from all this data is that the SSDs are not as fragile as some people suggest. I think most of us will long have moved to a later generation of storage devices before our cirrent SSDs wear out. Therefore it is not necessary to stand on your heads to reduce writes to the SSDs. Especially the page file, which really does not have a lot of writes when you have 3 or 4GBs of RAM, needs not to be moved.

Just call him a Wiener

I was thinking the same thing, well almost the same thing.
Actually have seen his posts on the other forum, quite knowledgeable, don't know why he was going on about his qualifications, when he could have just gave a suggestion on how to do a different SE on the drive.
The usual cause is not reading much of the threads posts, just posting...

SE won't help. Throttling is in the firmware and there is no fix except from OCZ.
A way to turn throttling off or ability to change the paramaters.

A Congressman knows everything about everything but.....needs picture instructions on the back of the stall door to use the paper distribution appliance.
Instructions from how to remove and where to use.

I'm glad I wasn't drinking anything when I read that.

The monitor would have received a shower!

The image that came to mind!

That is funny. But the sad part is it's the truth.

We keep electing them. "We" as in all the public. New ones are worse than the old batch.

Oh well enough on politics or I'll end up in trouble.

You won't get in trouble with me. I think they are all criminals. Some just worse than others.
