They don't just die, its dependent on how much data is written to the drive. Look at the data written in the screenshots.

ROFL!! Well for sure that'd be a waste of money if they did only last that long, especially since they're super expensive.
But going by all the screenshots, everyone's seem to have almost a 10 year lifetime.
But who knows if that's actually accurate. But good point though.

I bought this one in August 2010. Looks like it's been powered on more than most of yours:

I just bought a new one a couple of weeks ago but doesn't look like it's returning anything:

:(

I have set it up for over-provisioning though (ie shrinking the partition and leaving 10-15Gb unpartitioned space), helps having bigger cache and stops performance degredation and improves the life span of the SSD.

However, CrystalDiskInfo 5.6.2 states "Health Status: Good 100%" and the system seems fine, so I'll choose to ignore SSDlife :)
