The Tech Report has been testing 6 different 240GB ssd's to find out how many writes each SSD can take before it dies. So far the ssd's have had 3TB of data written to them. All 6 ssd's are maintaining reasonably consistent performance as the endurance experiment continues. There are some interesting results and anomalies.

Here is a link to the latest endurance test update:

Good information on endurance for some newer drives. This will hopefully help those new to SSDs relax and just use them.
