I've never had too many drive issues... SSD or not.
I think 3-5 years is my average drive lifespan, and I've got plenty pushing those with no issues at all. PC on 24x7, a number of drives in there... Yeah, no worries.

When they do go, though, they tend to go in multiples. 2 or 3 at a time, hah!

Any hardware can fail at any time.

I would have thought SSD's lifespan would be less than a mechanical simply because of the major speed differences.

normally in that order.
