Fair enough. This is why I upgrade drives every few years even if I
don't refresh the computers themselves as often....

This article seems to be more on target with consumer level drives?

It seems like, as far as longevity goes, even a power user would have
to work hard to kill off an SSD in 5+ years, which is plenty of life
for my purposes. The performance is so much better I'll deal with it
