i've only used samsung SSDs, and the oldest one, a first gen 810, is now on 3 yrs old, 256 gb, used as a boot / main drive on a daily desktop computer in my office - about month ago, it started failing to boot in the morning, and continued to fail to boot even after 4-5 "repair disc" boot file "repairs" - it would boot fine right after the "repair" but not the next morning. I then did a completeclone from a backup SSD, same failure to reboot next morning, then did a complete re-install of windows with same results. I pulled it and replaced with the clone backup 840 Evo, and been using the 810 as a "work table" drive after "wiping" it except for the MBR partition, which is where i believe the boot files reside.
As a work table drive, it's been fine - i've used it for video editing, and been filling the only partition to the max (besides the mbr partition) before wiping it again and starting overC
in an interview with the folks at OCZ re their SSDs, they indicate their SSDs are good for 20 Gb a day writing for 3 years usage, and that the average user (non video editing user) writes 10 GB a day, so they warranty their's for 3 years.
That sammy 810 i'll guesstimate saw that average 10 gb/day write usage before the mbr kept corrupting boot files.
