mine has until 1/12/2022
I wonder what the actual odds of it dying on that exact date are. If it does die on that exact day make sure you
buy a lottery ticket as well.
it's interesting compared to the last time i posted the same ssd: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...D-Optimization?p=628797&viewfull=1#post628797
and of course,i re-flashed it twice since then
So its actually getting healthier.
What are you feeding it?
It is not really predicting when it will die - just when the number of writes for the flash will reach 0%.
My 4 Intel x25-M G2's (in RAID0) range from 8 years 3 months to 10 years 7 months.
They were all purchased at the same time in November of 2009 and have always been in a RAID0 array.
I guess the RAID driver writes small files to the same drive each time when it doesn't have to distribute the file in pieces across the array.
I think I will rotate my SATA cables to see if it evens out.

I have lost %2 percent of life on my ssd since my first post and re-flashing the firmware ʘ‿ʘ
UPDATE: after re-flashing yet again
Why don't you take the drive out your pc and pack it up and put it away for a couple years. I'm sure you can make it last till 2050 !
Hmmm... lifetime goes up but health goes down.
I will try it tonight on my 64gb SSD.
