As bigballer mentioned, these are eMLC drives rated for 10K writes
holy sh*t. this is going straight to FP. Prevail Elite utilizes Intel eMLC memory chips. e stands for enterprise. It's about 3 times more durable than our forum favorites Samsung 830. Amazon descriptions says these drives are designed and assembled in the USA. LOL. Another plus.

That's actually a very good deal, hefty rebate and TC'ers prob deterred some folks.
TRIM issues are overblown as they are not showstoppers from a reliability standpoint.
The Sandisk Extreme and Kingston HyperX 3K both had the same complaints and continued to be excellent drives just fine with or w/o the firmware updates.
hows ur pny ssd?...i was thinking about getting a pny xlr8 pro 240 gig ssd but i was kinda iffy b/c of the firmware bug with trim...
does it perform to the specs?
FYI, the XLR8 is an earlier version, believe it's being phased out. any TRIM bugs would not impact reliability actually - just a slower recovery of deleted blocks (gets handled by background garbage collection).
