I meant the wear caused by writing data of course.

IMO if somebody uses particular kinds of software it's worth trying. On my computer (Intel 2 x 1,86 GHz 2GiB Ram) it takes about 1-2 minutes to start some CAD software (Catia). On other computer with SDD drive it's just 0,5 sec.

You can search for complaints from users wondering why their SSD failed and cannot be used. The failure is total in that nothing can be read or written. Which suggests that the controller section (the onboard hardware and firmware) is still not mature enough to expect long term reliability.
When will the controller section become mature? Rolling Eyes

Probably one day before a new drive type is made that makes flash based SSDs redundant.

The hard disks became too advanced these days and last too long.
They are not profitable to be manufactured anymore.
How convenient there was a flood in the main HDD factories.
Now the price of the SSD is competitive to the HDD and the live of the SSD is short - i.e. profitable.

Maybe they tried to make it SSD-like in order to be more competitive. Laughing
