    Default SSD Lifespame

    Usually SSD manufacture give us warranty 2 years for MLC SSD, that means SSD Lifespam less than 3 years?

    Check out Western Digital's white paper http://www.wdc.com/WDProducts/SSD/wh...ution_0812.pdf.
    Web searches such as ssd write erase cycles will provide links to many sites.
    I'm not too impressed with manufacturer claims of 1 - 2 million hours for MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) and their 3 year warranties.
    Happy reading!!

    Yes, it is helpful. Personally, i turely believe RENICE brand since the experiance of upgrate my Lenovo X220I with mSATA SSD. Quality and service are the best.

    The brand really doesn't matter all that much right now. SSD technology is still limited by the number of times data can be written. That's why you won't get longer than a 2-3 year warranty on it, plus the old standard on HDD's was anywhere from 3-5 years. However, for the average end-user at home or even enthusiast, the drive will last well past the warranty period as mechanical failure is essentially impossible, and the only way to fry it is by a power surge etc. Whenever you run out of write ability to the disk, the affected blocks will then act much as a CD-R (read only).

    Glad to help out.

    My SSD install with win7 was completely painless, with the exception of the learning curve going from win2k to win7.
    Check out http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...-capacity.html for some excellent suggestions from forum members that made the conversion easy. With my 60GB ssd using only 25GB, wear leveling and write erase cycles won't cause my ssd to "wear out" in my lifetime. If you're gaming or frequently use applications like PhotoShop, a 120GB or larger ssd will be in order.

    I have a hidden, empty, primary partition at the beginning of my hard drive. If my ssd suddenly dies, I can easily restore a recent disk image of my ssd to the hard drive's first partition and keep on truckin'.

    While my OCZ ssd has been trouble free, their marketing and some support practices have left many owners with a very negative experience. I encourage ssd buyers to support manufacturers that haven't pissed off many of their customers with shady practices. At the end of the linked thread, there are several links that detail how poorly they transitioned from the 34nm drives to the newer 25nm drives. You can also search the web for OCZ ssd fitment problems with Lenovo notebooks.

    Don't hesitate to buy an ssd, the system performance improvement is awesome!!
