I'd like to see examples of lifespans etc in my intended use before I invested in it. I've had enough flash pen failures to distrust them.
PSA/IT tip - for those considering a SSD as a boot drive!
From what I've seen / read, I'm with Andy on this (and said as much earlier). By the time they're worn to a point of being a problem, they're probably going to be due for replacement anyway. (And by then, you'll get ten times the storage for half the price).
We bought cheap ones at work for use in our email servers (tens of millions of emails a day). They broke within 6 weeks. The expensive ones are going great guns. With SSD, don't buy cheap.

Drives are ready for replacement when they fail? I'm still using 40 and 80 gig drives from 1997 in one machine, with no faults/bad sectors so far? I'd like to see quantifiable evidence though, as without it we're really just voicing concerns that may or may not be unfounded.
