It is still an excellent drive. However, some of the points are debatable. Not that they are wrong, it's just that the opposite opinion has a decent-size following of experienced people. These are
Disable drive indexing
And, to a much lesser degree, disable Hibernation (only do this if you want to hibernate a lot).
I personally fall on the side of enabling these. I'd rather have the drive work hard for me and wear out sooner in exchange for a faster experience.
