"The guys at Kingston have some fun with their Destructo series of SSD durability tests."

One of the main touted selling points of SSDs is their durability. With no moving parts, SSDs have a major advantage in this department over traditional mechanical drives. But how much abuse can SSDs really take?
Enter the SSD Destructo series. A pair of guys from Kingston have taken it upon themselves to find out, though in a perhaps less traditional, more fun manner. Tests so far have consisted of hitting the drive with a baseball bat, bowling ball and golf club, with the additional test of, as the Kingston boys call it, "throwing sh*t" at it.
