based on LDE (Long-term Data Endurance) - an industry metric,
introduced by SanDisk, that quantifies how much data can be written to
a SSD in its lifespan expressed in terabytes written (TBW). 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. 60GB G3 SSD can endure up to 40TB of data written
during its lifetime.
