I did some fuzzy math here.
My SSD has been online for 694 hours.
694 hours / 24 hours = 28.9166 days
I have written so far 556 GBs to the drive in those 694 hours.
So for the sake of this math, I'm going to say that in the average month I'm going to write about 700 GBs per month.
100 TB = 102,400 GB
102400 GB / 700 GB per month = 146.2857142857143 months (or 146.29 months)
146.29 months / 12 months (1 year) = 12.19 years
So, if an SSD can sustain 100 TB according to the test so far, which we can't say is the limit since the SSD hasn't died yet under TweakTown's test, we can therefore say that an average Samsung 840 Series 250 GB SSD will last anywhere from 10 to 12 years with a sustained write of an average of 700 GBs per month.
Or, if you do an average of 800 GBs per month... that's going to be the following math.
102400 GB / 800 GB per month = 128 months = 10.66 years.
So that means... an average of 9 to 10 years of life.--
