I'd assume the friends buying them follow whatever the recommended practices are, I've tended to avoid them myself due to the horror stories.

I've found with regular HDDs faults either tend to show up early, or they last a long time. Seagates are still by far the worst, the slower speed drives are definitely more reliable.

The main issue with SSDs seems to be that it's always very much 'without warning' Things can seem fine one day, next day you've got a paperweight. No clicking, no sign of failure, no bad SMART reports, just fine one day, dead the next, no chance of recovery.
