Data is written using typical PC transfer size, written at a constant rate over the life of the SSD, and data is retained for at least 1 year upon LDE exhaustion. Based on SanDisk internal measurements, a typical client PC user writes 4GB/day. 120GB G3 SSD can endure up to 80TB of data written during its lifetime. Â© 2010 SanDisk Corporation.
