    This sounds like Indilinx SSD and 5TB write seems to be quite something.

    Would you be the first one having an SSD that have out run the expected PE cycle ?

    Without knowing how this program calculate life, it is hard to tell whether it is the NAND is bad or just the PE cycle has been used up.

    Looks alright to me (besides two bad blocks). Which firmware is your drive actually running at the moment?

    Is it the one which is equivalent to Indilinx Barefoot firmware 2030?


    SSDlife reports the wrong firmware for both of my SSDs, so that should be nothing to worry about.

    I did a quick search and it seems that 1.10 is lastest. I have been away from this SSD stuff for a long time.

    I do not get what you try to say on the 2nd line :D

    Sorry, but anyway I think you're might already be running the latest firmware since your drive reports the updated 5000 P/E cycles estimate instead of the original 10,000.

    edit: This OCZ thread reports that 1.6 is the 2030 firmware which is the latest one.


    By the way, what are the issues that you are experiencing?

    SSDLife is reporting correct version for my SSD. Cause I do remember updating it to 1.6 it was pain... It did found 4 updates? It was a balon, now it won't appear...
    Hmm, I've did found this;
    Guide Vertex and Agilty 1.10 FW through 1.4 FW..

    So I've thought that 1.10 was lastest, however,
    I'm experiencing sutring. Like, everything just stop working (sometimes not included sound or any kind of music playback [WINAMP]) then everything goes back to normal in 3-4 seconds. My laptop just continue where it left from. This includes everything from surfing, youtube, gaming. I have noticed this issue ALOT in GTA IV this weekend. Huge FPS drop, I got kicked from some servers but did not in other. It is really random and wired :D or maybe not? 11TB Read and 5TB write is quite alot, isin't it?
