I'd say, yes. It saves you valuable ssd drive space and turns off things that are no longer needed.....Like, disk defragmentaion, which is a bad thing for an ssd.

Yes, I would recommend them to extend the life and performance of your drive

Edit: If you have sufficent RAM, things such as superfetch, prefetch and page files provide little to no benefit and take up space. While you don't "need" to make any tweeks you may regret it once you start running out of space.

This might not apply to you since you got alot of storage, but i have a 64gb crucial m4 and i turned off hibernation mode and it saved me almost ten gb of space. So if you are low on space and you don't use hibernate then i definitely recommend turning it off.

I would kill hibernate anyways as it causes a lot of problems usually.

Another thing is Firefox can be cached to RAM instead. Makes it faster and saves your SSD the extra writes.
