Hey guys,

Curious how many Terabytes you have written to your SSD!

I have an Intel G2 80GB. So far I am at 3.78TB according to the "Host Writes" S.M.A.R.T. attribute available for viewing with the Intel SSD Toolbox.

I think most of it is because I was running my bittorrent client, which has a memory leak, and I left it running even though it used up all my free RAM and proceeded to use 9GB of my pagefile! SSD access was intense and this is probably was caused the large value, but I don't care! My system was nice and responsive despite having no free RAM. I kept it this way for days just because I wanted to see how far I could go.. I was running out of free space on the SSD for expanding the page file size!

Drive is still 100% reliable, 3 reallocated sectors.

How much have you written to your drive without failure(post if large # of reallocated sectors)? Any manufacture of SSD but if you have over 12TB you should post if it was an SLC or MLC or hybrid SLC/MLC type.

Mod edit: SSD Life can show how much has been written on the drive:

I am kind of glad the Western Digital SiliconEdge Blue doesn't keep track... that thing was brutalized before we adjusted our tests from HDD-specific to SSD-compatible.Its probably in the 20-30TB written range, and still chugging along fine in a desktop. MLC Samsung NAND in that.

I actually don't know if there's a way to tell on my MBA or not...I would be curious to see though.

6,12TB on the 160GB Intel X25-M G2 with 18 reallocated sectors in my desktop.

Will post info from a few more SSDs around here when if i can extract any meaningful numbers. Do you know any way to get write-info from MTRON SLC drives or OCZ Revo drives? (I can 'guesstimate' but it would be nice to be precise).

Err, I voted 1-3 TB, but that is for each of my three Intel G2 80GB SSD drives in my RAID 0 array. Perhaps I should have voted 8-11 TB instead?

One of the drives has a single re-allocated sector. Media wear out indicator is 98% for all drives with +-10,768 power on hours (my system is on 24/7).

Ok, X25-M G2 160GB in use for a little over a year in my primary desktop is at 3.35TB of host writes.

I have some others here that are much higher in use, but those systems generally only have the SSD or SSD + external disk, whereas my primary desktop has much larger disk space for bulk storage.

No, stay with 1-3TB. Poll is per drive

Finally got around to checking my drives:

x-25 80gb: - 1.55TB. power on hrs: 8996

x-25 160gb: - 234GB. power on hrs: 20

intel 310 80GB: - 86GB. power on hrs: 700

Obvously the x25 80gb is the oldest. the 160 is in my laptop which stays off most of the time. the other 2 run 24/7

Intel X25-M G2 160GB

- In use about a year (not quite yet, maybe 10mo)

- Browser profiles/caches do not write to SSD (redirected to Ramdisk)

- Host Writes: 5.14 TB

- Power-on Hours: 7298

- Re-allocated Sector count: 0

- Media Wearout Indicator: 0

Working good so far (*knock on wood*).

strange: my SLC the 64 GByte X25-E from intel shows 1% dead with less than 1/2 TBytes written;

my other SSD, the 80 GByte gen1 X25-M from intel shows 4% dead with about 3,5 TBytes written;

this screen is from my SLC

I thought I might have seen this posted a while ago, but some guys over on XS are stress-testing several SSD's non-stop to determine how and when they will die.

Mostly testing the smallest size drives for obvious reasons, but several SSD's are at over 100Terabytes written already.

Very interesting thread to follow, to see what happens. :D

Intel 80GB G2. I can't remember how old it is but I purchased it not long after it 1st came out.

Power On Hours: 1558

Total Write: 3.07TB

Reallocated Sectors: 0

This drive is right on par in the stability, reliability with being a tad slower than my Samsung 470 256GB SSD. I love this drive though!

Your #s look good but why is your Unsafe Shutdown #s so high compared to your Total Power On Hours Count? That is kind of strange...

My old A-RAM 100gig sandforce drive is barely worn in at 3.75 TB written. Says 94% life left because of the factory retired block count (hasn't changed since I got it)

It has at least another 500 TB before the NAND is worn. (5000 cycle NAND)

it will probably suffer firmware/hardware related death long before that happens though

Should we vote with the 270TB written to that poor Patriot drive?

Was that 270TiB highly random and incompressable? To absorb 80% of 5000 cycle NAND on a 120gig sandforce drive, you would be running a write multiplier a fair bit higher a normal desktop load would create?

Would be interested in seeing the E9 attribute of that drive :)

I was surprised to have written "only" 7TB. I've had an Intel G2 160GB since right after release, and have used it for a lot of movie and music processing, and the Intel SSD Toolkit still says I have 100% life left. Maybe I'll leave it to my grandkids one day.

4.70-5.62 TB written to each of my three 80 GB Intel X25M G2 in RAID 0 now, with nearly 19,000 power on hours and a media wear out indicator of only 97%. Each of the three drives has a re-allocated sector count of 1.

Still going strong! :-)

At the end of April, or beginning of May, I should get a new system anyway - just waiting for Ivybridge and the dual-GPU Radeon 7990. When that time comes, I will opt for a couple of 240 GB Intel *or* Samsung SSDs in RAID 0. Leaning towards the Samsungs at this point.

Wasn't a new version of the Intel RST drivers that supported TRIM on RAID 0 in the works? I read something about it some time ago and then not a peep.

Wow, mine says 100TB!!! Is that bad? Why would it be so much? It is just my boot drive? Anything I am doing wrong or should I be worried?

I have the Intel X25-M 160.

Thanks,

Toby

Are you sure you're reading the correct field? How old is your drive? How many power on hours?

I know. I was thinking the same thing. I have attached a screen shot so let me know if I need to look somewhere else. Seemed like an awful lot.
