Other SSDs are rated in the same ballpark.

Here's a good article explaning MTBF: http://www.symatech.net/mtbf

If you're looking for an SSD, I'd recommend either a Crucial M4 or even an older OCZ Vertex 2 if you're on a budget. If it helps any, my OCZ Vertex 2 is 2 years old, and SSDLife expects my SSD to last another decade assuming current write rate.

MTBF, thats the time before the cells start wearing down. there is still a chance of failure on the drive overall and/or flash ROM failure...

for NAND...

It seems to be a bit more assuring that data is kept without external power...

No, it is not.


MTBF is NOT life expectency. In fact, it means nothing to consumers. MTBF only matters if you are running hundred of devices.

From a APC whitepaper:

Like I said, you'd be better off with an SSD that has much higher read/write speeds. I imagine one Crucial M4 could outperform a RAID array of that Samsung you've linked
