    I have a Samsung 840 Pro 512GB with 22TB total written, and recommended over provisioning on 🙂 180GB free.. Very cool

    And these were old old model SSD's with only 1/4tb of storage. Can you please test the 250gb 860 evo and 240gb crucial BX300. I can't decide and a ton of others in forums are debating the standard 3D MLC nand and Samsungs TLC 3D 64 layer v nand. Both like $80 but can't pick.

    Should I buy HyperX 480Gb?

    Does the new SSDs last a lifetime if it is stored, just for back up, and not in use? I mean, if I don't use it, only as backup, is it gonna store the data forever? Thanks 🙂

    I also have "Magician" tool for my Samsung SSD and it shows "GOOD". I suppose it stays like that until death because "HDD Guardian" (general open source windows smart tool) shows 99% which corresponds to the "Wear Leveling Count" attribute and is way more honest. TL/DR: Uninstall Magician, Install HDD Guardian.

    I am no longer worried about write endurance in any ssd. Sadly the real worry is CONTROLLER reliability and endurance! Yes folks.. the dreaded jmicron drive partition is corrupted or missing issue. I buy SLC ssd drives from Ebay and prices are reasonable and I buy many at a time to prevent being stuck with no drives if some fail. A super talent SLC 64gb NEW drive failed with a not formattable, and partition corrupted error after I backed up my files to it and plugged it in via usb to get my files for a new PC. Only 1mb format space available and that is common with ALL SSDs! So any videos pointing this out would be nice to warn all users.

    Do you think that the rate at which you moved data through these drives could have reduced their life?

    does google chrome writes per sesion or continuously? like if i have 40gb on 70 tabs and i dont turn off the computer literally almost never, does it counts as 40gb or it multiplies?

    Can a gamer just use one large capacity ssd? I'm considering switching to an SSD on my next build.

    I'm the worst nightmare of SSDs, I write 60 Gb a day with ease, I wonder what SSD will last in this condition at least 5 year ? I use SSHD and HDD drive at this time and potentially want to switch to SSDs but afraid of premature dieing 🙁

    So in theory if you only used the SSD to store for example video files and you were only going to write those to the drive once and then access them in your video editor essentially the drive would last an infinite amount of time since you are only using a "one write only" strategy? Would be more expensive per GB compared to HD but much more efficient re: lag in your video editor?

    I believe time itself has a great impact on SSDs, theyll start to decay over time combined with heat and the materials used to create it.
