Yes, with the last two writing well over 2 peta-bytes (2000 TB) before
giving up the ghost. Quite impressive.
One word of warning, one thing that authors did not test well here
was unpowered data retention. As flash cells wear out, the data
retention tends to head downward. A brand new flash cell can retain
data for around 10 years unpowered but that drops to a year or less for
a cell getting near its wear limit.
When left powered, SSDs do internal scans and will slowly fix up cells
before the data becomes unrecoverable.
