What score does the WEI give it?

Mine gives it 5.9. That makes it the weakest part of my system, which I find strange, so I was just checking if you also get 5.9.

Some are obviously better than others though, cuz they do range in price. I was looking at some 240 gig SSDs, somewhere around there anyways, and they ranged from 400 bucks to 2000 bucks, so I guess you get what you pay for.
Also there are many tweaks you can do. My SSD shows a 7.5 which is the highest on my ratings.

that's quite interesting because i have a OCZ Oynx SSD v1 - and i get a 6.9, not exactly the best of the ssd by any means.

by looking at other threads i can see your SSD is loosing life quite rapidly in comparison to other ssd's through out the thread? you ever had any issues with it?
what is your drive actually used for.

It's my boot/programs drive (but not games, storage (photos etc.)).

I've had no issues with it.

EDIT: I've noticed Kingston have a three-year warranty for my SSD. Maybe I could ask them if something is wrong with the WEI score and/or rapid life loss?

there is no harm in sending a support ticket / email. i did look on website to see if they had FW updates but appears for that drive they have never released any downloads.
