    How many write cycles is 16nm NAND rated at? As process nodes get smaller, it lowers the number of write / erase cycles...

    I'm fairly sure they are constantly coming up with techniques to stop the electron leakage though, effectively countering that issue.

    So true. I'd rather have a decent life for an SSD and pay a little bit more.

    Nah, they just use a higher percentage for error correction bits.

    Yes. For just one example, they can change out traditional gate oxides for various high-k dielectrics to prevent leakage currents but keep performance up.

    40GB of writes every day for 5 years is plenty for me, and most people, 95% of its data will tend to be static. Unless you are using it for swap space.
