[Rant] Samsung 840 usage after almost a year

It's been almost a year since I've bought the Samsung 840 series SSD for my rig. Since this has TLC flash, it should deteriorate quickly. So I have been keeping a close eye on the amount of data written to the drive.

3.96GB after about 330 days. That’s 12GB/day. Quite a lot more than I expected, to be honest.

According to this article at Anandtech, it seems at 10GB data written per day, a 256GB drive should last for 70 years! So maybe mine will last for 58 years. No big deal. I will be dead by then.

Need to load it up more.
