Keep in mind with the solid state drives that their is a duty cycle of about 10,000 writes per bit, meaning a spot on the hard drive can be expected to last through 10,000 read/write cycles before it may go bad. 

I would think that there is software built into the controller to move bits around as that point is exceeded, but from what I have heard, they do not make a good drive for constant read/write operations.
