I built my Ryzen 7 3700X build back in the end of March 2020. I got the final part on 03/29/2020.
Luckily before the surge of PC parts being sold out everywhere, it is fine to buy it if you are going to use it yourself but not if you are one of those heartless scalpers who buy and markup heavily for their own gain, I hate those kind of ASShats.

Anyway this replaced my Intel i7-4790K Haswell system which had a Samsung OEM P961 Polaris (from Amazon) that had over 10TB written to it and the health was still at 100% when I sold it, and it is still working at 100% health.

I got an Inland PCIe SSD 256GB and I have 2.2TB and it is already at 97%.

I know it is not a premium quality SSD but what gives?

It's not dropping fast. Under 1% per month means you have 10+ years of life. There is nothing to worry about.

And even after you've crossed that threshold, it's not like things are going to stop working. You're just in an "unknown" region. That SSD could last years even beyond its rated lifespan.

I was just woried because the Samsung one had over 10TB written and it was still at 100%

I don't even know what the rated lifespan is I just got it because it was cheap, anyway this drive is just the windows installation drive so if I dies I don't lose much. All of my 'important' files are stored on multiple spinning drives with the more important stuff in more then one drive.
