SSD seems to have flake and die quick or last years. HDs used to be the same way. The ones that brick tend to have the same controllers. It is a bit of a wild ride out there for SSDs right now. HDs have pretty much consolidated on 2-4 platforms from 2 vendors. Bricking tends to also be vendor segmented intels tend to die into read only. Yet a samsung will brick out. Even then it seems to be model related. I have taken to reading 1 star reviews to see what the failure model they have.
