    As a rule, most of us do not let Newegg reviews carry much weight. There are far too many reviewers there that don't understand the products completely.
    Many of their problems are due to them not knowing how to properly configure their computers.

    But I do alert on a disproportionately high number of 1 egg reviews. In that case, I'll start doing searches and perusing reviews to see what the problems may be before I buy.
    Intelligent reviews by reputable sites, such as this one, always help me to make informed decisions. (I'm on a retirement income, so I have to spend wisely)

    Please remember that any question is good to ask on our site. The only bad question is one that isn't asked.
    Somebody here usually has the correct answer and we do not mind helping, ever.

    i have posted bad revies on the egg and they were censored off
    just because people are getting bad productts, and writing bad reviews to warn the public does NOT mean the review will ever be posted

    serious grievance

    this is a SSD virtual ram alternative theory question

    so looking at all of the SSD usage rulls it seems the main point is to make the drive see as little actuall use as possable in order to extend it's life span

    so i'm wanting to use that theory and put some vertual ram on a seperate drive, but whene i assign it to that drive, it does not benefit the ssd my os is running from

    a separate problem is that half of my ram (no matter how many gigs i install it is always half) is used by "hardware reservations" i's like to also destroy this GRIEVOUS problem, and set it to use a virtual ram on a second drive

    any1 got any magical solutions?

    Latest gen SSD's are not so bad when it comes to longevity. Think about just how much is written to ssd on a daily basis and you will see that it is only certain usages that require a special drive

    Take something like the Samsung pro, it has a warranty of 5 years or 73 TB whichever comes first I believe. This equates to 40GB per day 7 days a week 365 days a year

    The Sandisk Extreme 2 is a tad higher.

    If you have a need for more the get something more enterprise based like a Seagate 600 pro which has the same 5 year warranty but a 520TB maximum or 284 GB/day

    Te use that you need to reduce on older drives is really only the write cycles. It should be enough to follow the guide and switch of some of the things that windows does automatically (linux too for that matter)

    I am of the opinion that the top way you can increase the life of your drive is through over-provisioning

    Can't help with Windows based ramdrives though sorry

    If it helps your peace of mind, I have an Intel 520 120GB drive here that I guess is about 2 years old is 20% overprovisioned and has 59TB of writes on it. Smart currently shows it to be in perfect health. I doubt any of you here use drives as much as I do.
