That was/is a $15 Transcend 4GB class 6 card that not only can have 5 erase blocks open but also has an impressive random w/r speed (full flashbence data is attached)

Sorry no data on this, but the card is also holding an OS. Ubuntu 8.10 till recently and XOpup the last couple of weeks. 
Probably 1000 of the 1500 hours where run with this alternative OS, so I would think "a lot" of writes.
Two caveats though, the card spend half of its life with an ext2 file system and the other half with an ext3. 
My Ubuntu OS was configured with `vm.swappiness=0' (no swappiness settings for the OLPC builds in the NAND).
