No problems at all and the SSD life test still says it's in perfect shape. Has a ten year warranty on it so I wasn't too worried. I'm confident enough that I'm planning to get the 980GB for video editing later this year.

Word of caution. That's one use case that kills SSDs really quickly, depending on your usage. If you're just editing a video or 2 a day, it's not so bad. However, if you doing it as a day job, then be prepared for a shortened lifespan.

Re: SSD Life
A long time. My SSD is 2 years old as of 2 days ago and with 7355 power hours and 1522 startups, it's still showing 99% health. Worth every penny.

I got two M.2 Samsung SSD's in my Machine that I rotate every 4 months or so.
Looking very healthy to me:

Re: SSD Life
For those of you who may be interested there are a couple of free programs you can download to test the health and transfer rates of your HDD or SSD.

The names indicate which. Mark is the tests and info is the health one. I have installed both and Norton found them safe to run.

Re: SSD Life
SSD's have blocks that fail and these are removed from the allocation table and new blocks are added from the reserved section of the drive or storage pool. The commercial SSD's have twice as large a reserve of blocks and so have a longer life in high transaction environments, like an enterprise server with thousands of clients.

Re: SSD Life
They do have a lifetime, but one way to mess up your SSD's is to do a DE-FRAG, scandisk yes, DEFRAG NO, never no never. on ordinary HD's yup,
but a defrag will reduce the lifetime of your SSD by half
