    I just ordered one, figured I would be upset with myself if I didn't and it's a pretty decent deal.

    I just took a shot and ordered one too. It's just that i haven't seen a lot of reviews about it so i'm not really sure about its performance.

    from what i've read about 3K drives is this: However, the NAND flash used in the build of the original HyperX drive has NAND with an endurance rating of 5,000 PE (program/erase) cycles and the HyperX 3K sporting NAND rated at 3,000 PE cycles (hence the 3K appellation).

    And yet still they say 8 years at 10gb of writes a day... Which is lets be honest quite a lot, I can't think of a mechanical I would put through that.
