Says it's "3D Nand". Well that's good to know. I'm so behind on my ssd knowledge. Like "Have you heard of that fancy MLC flash storage" behind. Are there any current generation drives that fail catastrophically and early these days?
Outright failure isn't as much of a concern with the latest few generations of drives.

There are more budget focused SSDs that don't have a high-speed cache (DRAM or SLC flash), and budget/high capacity drives that use QLC flash (opposed to MLC/TLC flash). These drives usually aren't recommended due to worse performance and being not that much cheaper than better drives, but aren't actively dangerous to your data.

e. I mean you should still backup your data but the cheap SSDs aren't as bad as they once were.
