58,613 hours without a hitch yet.

Not bad at all, not bad at all.

What your drive's total?

My oldest ssd is 3 years, 4 months, and 7 days. My oldest hd recently died, so I don't know.

All spinners. Thanks for making me check. I've some 1TB and 2TB drives NIB hanging around, I think I'll replace them.

Yeah WD Golds are nice. I have an 8TB in this system, with 16570 hrs. The drive with the highest power on time in this system is an 850 Evo 500GB, with 35051 hrs.

I've got a 3TB Seagate in my main PC with 41K+ hours on it... no problems ever. I worked my way through the 500GB/1TB/2TB/3TB/more... upgrade, so my spinners don't have gobs of time on them, but my bigger capacity HDDs are my last HDDs, so they are here to stay.

I built a PC for my MIL about 9 years ago, and I installed an Intel 120GB SSD on it... I checked the time on it a few weeks ago, because it's been running 24/7/365 for about, well, 9 years! It has something like 70000 hours on it, but only 4TB written to it.

I'm a little surprised it's not higher but my 2 HDD in my photo/gaming PC are both at 32K. One of the drives is a WD Black 750 GB model from 2009!
