Intel X25-M 80GB (SSDSA2M080G2GC) - usage report

I ordered mine on 12-Apr-2010, and it’s December now, so it’s ~6 months of light use, 135 days = 4.5 months of uptime and an average 6GB of writes per actual day, which translates in just a bit over 1TB of writes. The drive already has 1 bad sector, which was remapped about a month ago. Decided to test performance with AS SSD Benchmark, and here’s the screenshot with results.

Just updated my TortoiseSVN client at home from 1.6.9 to 1.6.11 and found that I can no longer use overlay icons, either in Explorer or in Total Commander (more used to the latter). It appeared as if Tortoise shell extension was not loaded. I tried a restart - same thing.
