550 TBW for the 480 GB is pretty good, but not as amazing as the MyDigitalSSD BPX's 1400 TBW for the same capacity.

I upgraded my current laptop (a brand new Lenovo E560) with a Kingston KC400 512 GB with 800 TBW as the data drive. (The boot drive is an OCZ RD400 256 GB.) With 800 TBW, I figure I can transplant it into my 2nd laptop in 3 years and it will still have several more years of life.

Heh, with the way flash prices are going, I got a laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad 13) with a 256 GB M.2 drive and the intention of replacing it with something bigger/faster in 2-3 years.

Interestingly, the CPU in my laptop is listed as a field-replaceable part. So, I'll probably upgrade to a i7 and max out the RAM, at the same time. I've already had it open, and the CPU upgrade looks like it could be pretty simple. Should be almost like a new laptop.

Perhaps, but we've got to see the low queue depth random I/O numbers. That's what people actually feel, most of the time, and what really sets apart the top performers from everything else.
