Samsung's latest 4TB 860 EVO SSDs are expected to handle writing over 1,300GB/day over the 5-year warranty.

I found this write-up that said most people write a few TB per year, and the 840 series Samsung SSD was showing some issues at around 300TB https://techreport.com/review/27909/the-ssd-endurance-experi...
My computer has a Samsung 850 series SSD. Probably it's good for a hundred years at my rate of use.
Some other brands went to PB range before failing.

Yeah, they fail the $/GB test, but having gone 100% SSD in my latest build, I'd be hard press to go back to HDD.

Me too, so much faster with the SSD.
