Intel X25-M 80GB (SSDSA2M080G2GC) - Usage Report

I ordered mine on 12-Apr-2010, and it’s December now, so it’s ~6 months of light use, 135 days = 4.5 months of uptime and an average 6GB of writes per actual day, which translates in just a bit over 1TB of writes. The drive already has 1 bad sector, which was remapped about a month ago. Decided to test performance with AS SSD Benchmark, and here’s the screenshot with results:

I am not very impressed with these, as I think it used to perform better when it was new, despite what people say about TRIM. Unfortunately, I could not find similar screenshots done at that time. From the top of my head, 4K reads were better, and sequential writes were close to 70MB/s. Still, a great deal, compared to a (magnetic) hard drive.
