    Understand, but that is an extreme usage of SSDs. In normal Joe Smith's systems it should be faster than HDDs and not degrade - at least not that fast.

    Over 3 and close to 4 years of my first SSD, Kingston V300, 120 GB, it was cheapest at that time and still like new despite countless OSs installed and uninstalled and used in all kinds of experiments.

    I don't see much sense in the statement: SSD age, not usage, affects reliability. Since all of their SSD's are being hit constantly (usage) it doesn't follow that "usage" would not dovetail precisely with "age"--ie, the older their SSD's, the more they would have been used, etc.

    Plus, gigantic SSD's are still being researched and developed and so SSD tech is nowhere near as stagnant as HD tech at the moment. What looks like a solid result this year may not even apply to next year's tech, etc.

    All I can say is that I am happy as a clam with my tiny 250GB EVO 850 boot drive (c:\) thus far...but I backup every new Insider build to an HD partition I reserve for that distinct purpose. I actually clone my SSD there, and then run a Win7 backup copy there, too, for good measure. (I have all of my applications & games on other partitions & drives (HD's) than c:\--all I keep on c:\ is the OS, device drivers, and various utilities I consider indispensable. )
    Hi walt, what program do you use to clone. . .on my Macs I using carbon copy. . .

    My 2 oldest are from 2008. That makes it 8 years for these OCZ. They never failed.

    The first SSD I bought was an Intel 510 - 120 GB SSD when I built my system 5 years ago. That SSD started life with Win 7 Ult, upgraded to Win 8.0 then 8.1 and is still running the Win 10 Insider Previews with only 94% Media Wearout with 3.01 TB host writes.

    I am using a Corsair Force 3 120gb for this tp build, it has 3.4gb writes, and 2.5gb reads, I am starting to retire this capacity simply because larger ones are so much cheaper now. I have Corsair 120's, Kingston 120's and 240's, Sandisk 240, OCZ 60, Samsung 840 pro 128, 850 pro 256, 850 evo 500, Verbatim 128, none of which show any signs of problems. As for spinners, I have had 4 fail. Of course, none of my ssd's have had a lot of use to wear them out.

    I've been using SSD's for 7 years now in my PC and the only problem I had was running 2 corsair performance 256gb(samsung based ssd) in raid-0 deteriated performance after about 9-12 months of use as a OS drive/main storage. I've switched over to a samsung 850 pro 512gb a year and a half ago and haven't had any problems with it. I also have 850 Pros in my PS3/PS4

    Ps. for cheap Samsung SSD prices check out jet.com with a 10-20% off first order promo code.
