I thought controller failure starts around 600TB written
controller doesn't have an endurance limit, or even if it does it'd last way longer than your life.
NAND write endurance though depends on the write cycles, each write cycle erodes the cells, after a certain amount of write cycles the cells will rupture and leak their charge.
in general, its a hit or miss, since not all NANDs are manufactured perfectly, but theoretically speaking they can last for a long time.
e.g. lets say a 256GB SSD has an endurance of 4000 cycles, MLC has 2bits per cell which makes it (( 256GB / 2 ) * 4000 cycles) = 500TB endurance limit.Edited by epic1337 - 2/22/16 at 11:18pm
