I bought this 80GB used Intel SSDSA2M080G2GN for $42 shipping included. 

I would like to know if I should keep it, it says it has already written 31.69TB 

Intel guarantees them to work until 35TB so the drive is very close to that point. 


Health is at 100% and have more than half of life remaining. 

Should I try to swap/return it or should I keep it considering it has hold well with such history?

Buying a used SSD off eBay seems like a bad idea. Here, you have an SSD that's at least half used and you paid .50/GB which is the going price for brand new SSDs. You got a terrible deal if you ask me.

Bad deal for sure.  I wonder how the previous user managed to write 30+TB to an 80gb SSD :-o
