    It doesn't seem heavily used but that's still a great life time.

    By the time people have to replace these drives. SSD's are going to be the same price as standard satas.

    Indeed, the write limitation of SSDs is a greatly overblown issue in the vast majority of cases.

    My Corsair SSD failed after under a year, but at least it was replaced under warranty. =P

    I'm assuming that was because of a controller failure? Reaching the write limit will only render them read-only.

    Correct. I didn't have all that many writes.

    Haha. Like with any drive configuration, regular backups are a must.

    Gosh, I am amazed at people using computers, tablets, all the rest. Literally every part of those damned devices can fail. At any moment. Without warning.

    What utility is that, that you're using?

    I've got an Intel SSD I use in my home system. I'm surprised the estimate isn't longer.

    Two years isn't very impressive, and estimates aren't worth much. Just sayin

    Must be SSD-life... there is a free version....download and increase your Intel SSD's lifetime by many more years

    Come to think of it, same here. That tends to be the hardware component that often "goes" first, though, in my opinion.

    I've never had too many drive issues... SSD or not.
    I think 3-5 years is my average drive lifespan, and I've got plenty pushing those with no issues at all. PC on 24x7, a number of drives in there... Yeah, no worries.

    When they do go, though, they tend to go in multiples. 2 or 3 at a time, hah!

    Any hardware can fail at any time.

    I would have thought SSD's lifespan would be less than a mechanical simply because of the major speed differences.

    thats true.

    I often tell customers "You can have a gold computer, and things will always go wrong at the weakest point"

    It's usually:

    HDD
    grpahics
    mobo
    PSU
    monitor

    normally in that order.

    on my personal builds though only had the hdd go wrong.
