Unfortunately it only shows a fixed temp and nothing else re: smart...I'd luv to see how many miles it's racked up. With 51nm nand, I'm thinking it'll be around for a long time to come.
Woah that's OG right there. biggrin.gif

How much did that thing cost you back in the day?

Who didn't pay a higher price for smaller SSDs all of two years ago. I just bought a 480GB SanDisk Extreme II for $300. I know I paid over $200 for my first 80GB Intel X25-M G2 SSD, and a little less for my first Crucial M4 128GB SSD. Microcenter has 480GB Crucial M500's for $240, hows that for $0.50/GB.

Instead of a 120GB Kingston V300 120GB SSD with the Async/Sync NAND lottery for $75, you can get a 120GB M500 for the same price. Or a 240GB M500 for $120. It's a buyer's market for SSDs right now, at least in the USA. A bad time (now) for Intel to release the pricey 730 SSD, a pro-sumer SSD marketed (poorly) at PC enthusiasts, letting Samsung walk away once again with most of the enthusiast business.

Yes, ironically the older SSDs that use 34nm NAND with 5,000 P/E cycles (but it is slower than current NAND) will no doubt last longer than their controllers will. rolleyes.gif

I am looking now on Amazon.
SanDisk Extreme II 480GB 282$ ,that is really,really low and only reason for that is low prices that Samsung manage to get because of TLC NAND .Again thanks to TLC we are getting great MLC drives for low price.

Haha I know the feeling. My first drive was a Vertex 3 Max IOPS 120GB for ~$290. SMH...

Speaking of which, the 500GB EVO was on sale for $235 yesterday @ Buy.com. thumb.gif
