If your so damn smart (typing keywords into a box), might it be best just to keep your mouth shut and let someone else get the "question answering headache" so you no longer have to?

What are you using your computer for? Screen shot please?
I don't use my SSD for storage.

I've seen the 840 go for 400TB of writes before kicking the bucket. I'd rather have quality TLC over inferior MLC (like OCZ) any day of the week.
I have a 240gb Corsiar Force GT with about 10+ windows/games/drivers/updates installs over 2 years on my current rig. I have no more than 5TB of reads. Writes are below 1TB. 100TB till it kicks the bucket still translates to 20 years. I don't believe any of these TLC failure claims without links or proof that they fail so quickly.

There have been many numerous postings regarding some tests being ran on these on slickdeals previous deals. I will have to dig to find out, I believe it was maybe around 100TB before the 840 completely died (not sure if it was a 250GB version).
But there is this review, if you write 10GB a day it will last around 7 years on a 250GB
The above is based on 256GB (though there is only 250GB exist), taking the above estimates into consideration it becomes 10GB/day or 3.5TB/year for 7 years.

3.5 years estimated life? Geez, what if I write to my SSD twice as much as an average user - less than 2 years of life. Thank you, I'll pass. My 40GB system HD is 11 years old. Some slickdealers were wearing pampers when it started churning. I've got a SSD recently and I'm starting to play with it. It's kinda hard to set up in XP with SATA-IDE adapter, etc.
TLC must die!

I run VMs. For others, it might be high IO apps like video processing or editing. There's always a reason.
I'm glad your 90GB works for you.

The 256 is practically $200...
But they want $500 for the 512gb 840 pro. Is that the one you're waiting to hit $200??
If it did before, that sounds like a steal!
