The most common cause of SSD failure so far has been.... firmware issues. The data is NOT easily recoverable in these cases.

The data stays at least one year. The data can be lost as the electrons leak out.

There's so little power involved the control board is very very unlikely to go. The NAND will eventually become unwritable though, so 90+ percent of the time that is the failure that will be seen. My point is that in non enterprise applications, a raid is not nearly as important for SSDs
Wear is definitely NOT the most common cause of failure though. Firmware failures is.

True, but the sequential performance gains isn't nearly as important as the random ones.

Yup, you're right... it's 3 months.

I would honestly only have the 512 GB SSD, that is more SSD storage then i could ever use, and buy a 2TB standard Drive + like a 64GB SSD cheap and use it as a hybrid drive. From what ive seen SSD cached hybrid drives are just as fast and almost as good for reaction times as full on SSD's and are 1/4 as much to setup for large amounts of space.
