Not sure what you did to it.. but this estimate is likely wrong. Your drive is new and you've only been monitoring it for 27 mins. If any heavy activity (new program installs etc.?) was going on during this period, the software will assume it's going to stay this was, almost running your SSD full blast 24/7. Which is probably not what you're up to, otherwise you jsut bought the wrong drive

Was that after running it for a day? I see the monitoring at 27minutes...
The basic features in the free version are enough for an estimate of SSD life.
1. Install ssdready, launch it in the morning and leave it open all day.
2. At the end of the day, click on the button Estimate ssd life.
When you click that button, the program will open a page on our website and show you the approximate lifetime of several solid-state drives, based on your data. We do this through a page on our website because not all solid-state drive manufacturers publish the write limits for their disks, and we plan to add more of them as we acquire such data. If you're unable to open the site on the computer for which data were collected, just write down the value for Total Writes and enter it on our website by hand (both the number and the letters after it, for example: 123 GB).
