    from where you get those rated endurance ?

    if the endurance that low, it seems they using their lowest grade chip
    the good things they still provide 5years warranty for it...

    not sure if affordable = value...
    intel product has been always expensive = high quality/reliability which turn to better value in long term
    but this one, its more like micron typical product

    72TBW isn't bad at all for a consumer grade product. The drive will be obsolete long before it fails due to write cycles. I'd venture to say the average consumer is writing less than 5TB per year.....giving this drive a 14.4 year life span. How many people keep a drive that long? Most of us don't keep a harddrive longer than 5 years. There's a higher risk of circuit failure than there is NAND failure during it's usable life span.

    You can't just post the numbers and compare. You have to think.

    I have an Intel X25-M 160GB drive that I bought new in 2009 for $550 and it's seen daily use. I'd call it average use, no video or photo editing. I have 18.3TB lifetime host writes on the drive.

    72TB is more than enough for the average Joe Shmoe on this site that plays games and browses the internet. It would only be a concern if your job entails video/photo/3D editing. Speeds are good too, removing the SATA bottleneck is big. Writing that 1TB drive 72 times over to completion just won't happen, it will probably die first and I'd be surprised if its lifespan is as long as this X25-M.

    This drive is a no brainer for everyone except heavy content creators who do it for their day job.
