Nope. Wear leveling is supported (and active by default) on pretty much every SSD except in the early units (Back when they costed an arm and a leg). That's why they died so quickly.

Wear leveling makes sure the wear on the SSD is leveled between every memory "cell" even if it has to move files from cell to cell and it does that without you even noticing it making the 300TB estimate pretty much bang on even if you're overwriting the same file over and over again, and even if the disk if full it will level out the wear for you (keep in mind most SSD can get up to 600 TB). Wink

EDIT:
(I've found RamDisks to be too unreliable, had a few corruptions a while ago, I cannot trust RamDisks for important data unless you have ECC RAM or feel like doing backups every hour(Backups beats the purpose of saving writes tho). Shure you can put WhatPulse in a RamDisk but i find it too much hassle to save some writes on an ssd which is not a big deal anyway (It was a big deal for the early units with weak cells and no wear leveling). Plus it can make your computer slower because it uses your ram, and unless you have 6 GB or over you might feel an impact)

A modern, recent SSD is more reliable than an HDD.
