Is there ever a reason why anyone would pepper their SSD in real life for 20 minutes with random write data? No, it is impossible to do in the real world. You can fill a 120GB SSD up in what, 8 to 12 minutes if the data is coming from another high speed SSD. With that in mind, why the hell would you abuse a drive and then act like this is a normal occurrence? Like every day someone is just blasting an SSD in their system with massive amounts of random data.

IT IS LIKE TAKING A SHOWER WITH A PRESSURE WASHER!

Here is another one for you.
