If I recall correctly, over at xtremesystems.com there is a forum where they torture test various SSD's to see how long the cells will last with the various controllers.

Most of these drives can handle hundreds of Terabytes of Host writes before petering out. I happen to write about 2 terabytes a year, so if I extrapolate, the cells for me should last at least a hundred years.

They currently have drives they are testing that have handled over 2 Petabytes of Host writes.

Early on they had an issue with the OCZ vertex 2.
After they bombarded the drive for weeks, "by design" the controller shifted itself into a slow down mode to prevent using up the Host writes to fast.
What they experienced was a SSD that would crawl during Host writes.

It was thought that the manufacturer, intentionally shifted those drives into slow down mode once it reached a certain number of writes. It was further thought that this was done to ensure that the drive would last at least through the warantee period.

This ticked the users off.
Most people with normal wear and tear would not approach the number that caused the intentional slowdown.

Once slowdown was hit, there was no way to reset the controller.

The thread is now over 4000 entries long.
Quite an interesting read.
If you are interested in the OCZ vertex 2 read the first couple of months of entries in that thread.
