Seems they've been reduced from 10K to 5K program/erase cycles.
Lifetime is the same.

lifetime of the drive is the same, lifetime of the NAND on the drive is less. The drives have more extra NAND to make up for the decreased life.

Ah, yes that's what I meant. The NAND lifespan is shorter. As long as the warranty is still the same, it's no big deal.

I take it this is a limitation of 25nm NAND, in which case all SSDs with 25nm NAND will be affected.

wow pricey, i just went and grabbed the 60gb OCZ Vertex 2 and I'm extremely happy... I put om the OS and most of my apps and a couple games on it (swap games every so often), everything else I install on my old Velociraptor drive... works great, fast boot times and lightening fast app time for 80% of the stuff I use regularly...
