The 860 EVO version is rated for 150 TB of writes before it becomes unreliable. This means that this SSD will last for a long time and for most people it will probably never become obsolete considering the fact that most people won't be writing more than 10GB in a day. See More
The MX3300 offers an endurance of 220 TB of writing. In other words, you can completely fill this SSD with files, wipe it, and fill it again 220 times before it becomes unreliable. This means that the MX300 can be used for quite a long time especially considering the fact that most users won't be writing more than 10GB even on a busy day. See More
