Premiere 2 tuner on Cable example
In my Home, we use a Premiere 2 tuner on Cable.
Looking it up in the chart, this writes 95TB/year to the drive.
(If using Antenna, I would use 150TB/year instead. And if both, a weighted average depending on which I use more, or just the higher of the two.)
The Intel 335 Series (240GB) has been well tested on a PC. It lasted 750TB, which is 750TB/240GB = 3125x which we'll round to 3000x.
If I want the SSD to last 3 years, it would have to be:
((95TB / year) * 3 years) / 3000 = 95 gigabytes
If the SSD is less than 95GB it's expected to die from wear before the 3 year mark, and it should last longer if larger than 95GB.
Assumptions here are the SSD is using a wear leveling algorithm which still includes static data ( avoids Keep Forever video problems) and minimal write amplification ~1x. Other drive models might not have these properties.
Also note, it's proportional, so a 190GB Intel 335 SSD is expected to get 6 years on this setup.
