    I use badblocks for a full write/read pass and then check SMART data through smartmontools afterwards. How comfortable are you with Linux? Do you have a spare PC (or can dedicate a PC) to Linux while testing HDDs?

    Need a larger SSD to last into future. Stick with 520 or go 840 Pro series?

    Do you really need 25% free space? I don't worry about longevity / write amplification etc. I figure by the time it matters, you can just get a replacement.
