its nearly impossible to wear a ssd down .even with CONSTANT USE, it would take 2-3 YEARS

its the same scare with droid and ios devices: dont install a pagefile, it will ruin it... yes the life IS shortened, but the device will still outlive the storage.. or at least last a few yrs.. and in todays world... anything 3+ yrs old needs upgrading

a nice thing is .HDDSD . i use them... 4TB HDs with 16-64GB of SSd technology to cache 64 of the most recent data . if the ssd part fails, the hybrid drive disables it and continues as a regular HDD . that memory is being written to every time u use the drive . if it were so fragile, they would use it .

so hybrid drives tell me that a person cant over use a ssd drive . its virtually impossible unless you get a defective one

also once da3 is loaded, it barely touches my hard drive . so i see no reason why ppl are afraid it will kill SSDs

also you cant take a block out that .SSds use write leveling . so whatever free blocks you have, if something constantly wrote to just one file, the SSD moves that file around to "level" or avg the writes done.

but like i said.. this is all hype and fear tactics .

Like I said on whatever page I wrote on :P

It focuses on processes running not drives

@DABhand - if you keep dispelling everything the tin foil hat industry is certain to suffer... please, think of the children.

No no think of the tin foil. It will never see those happy times again.

i see the value in ssd's, but as a professional photographer who has been 'digital' since 1997 i also know that the finite lifespans of solid state tend to bite you in the arse sooner than later, so even my new rig with titans is sticking with 6gb/s platter drives. they are...fast enough.
