    SSDs are fairly reliable, in terms of wear level. By the time they lose excessive amount of sectors, many HDDs would've head-crashed.

    Now for firmwares, that depend on the vendors.

    Lol, Intel just discontinued their product (it means that there is no more updates/improvements for this product), you have nothing to worry about. The warranty isn't removed...
