"The last ingredient in the Vertex 4 is OCZ's Toolbox software, which can download and apply firmware updates with just a couple of clicks. The toolbox can also be used to secure-erase the Vertex if you'd like to return the drive to its factory-fresh state." (from the Vertex 4 review on TR)
The author states you can "return the drive to its factory-fresh state." Is that true?
I always thought there was a finite number of reads and writes with NAND Flash and that once it reaches the limit it's done. I never knew you could restore an SSD to its "factory-fresh state."
So if it's possible to restore a Vertex 4, does that mean any SSD can be restored to its factory-fresh state?
