    No it doesn't. Maybe 10 years ago, not now.
    so very wrong. Even the latest SSDs crap out after a short time.

      Use a smart os, use trim, right fs/mount options, ram temp folders etc and you'll be fine for many years. But sure, if you benchmark your ssd everyday you'll wear it out a bit faster than it would during normal use.

        normal usage - where you are constantly at 80%? trim - that not even implemented command?

        ssds might be ok in some years. but I am not holding my breath.

          TRIM is supported in Windows 7 and Linux (ext4), the next FW (coming this week) from OCZ will support it.

          I don't consider constantly at 80% being normal usage, but I get your point. Actually my Vista partition on my Vertex has been sitting on 9GB free of 46GB for a while now, and I haven't experienced any slowdowns.

          I got the SSD because I wanted superior performance for a good price. In a year or so there'll be a lot faster SSDs with greater storage for the same price, or you could get the original Vertex for a few dollars. Everything has shortcomings, if you want the best you will constantly upgrade.

            I actually read the full Anandtech article about SSD's. And my conclusion was, not a single one of them is ready, and that I'm so getting a VelociRaptor for my next comps main drive.

              For me it was obvious. Extreme performance for an ok price (considering it's new tech) , if I need to replace it in 3 years I don't mind.

                Nice review, but I was really hoping to see power consumptions compared.
