Never had an SSD stop working...but I have broken 2(kinda). The SATA connector on some is made from pretty weak plastic and I have broken the tabs off 2 of them... making it unable to latch to the cable. I super glued the cable on to access them, still sitting in a box somewhere.

Have been using SSDs for a while, and have not personally had any failures. Granted I usually upgrade to higher capacity drives before the old ones have time to die. First was a 32gb PATA drive that I don't even remember the model of. Had a Intel 320 series 80GB and a Crucial M4 128GB that were in used in various systems for several years before I sold them (still working). There was a point where I though one of my m.2 drives had died, but it was a motherboard issue. Works fine in other systems.

At work, I recently started deploying machines with SSDs. The latest batch of Lenovo prebuilts we ordered have Samsung PM981 NVMe drives. Will be nice to see how they hold up over a few years. Obviously the end users appreciate the speed bump over their old hard drive based machines.

I had a Corsair Force GT die on me a couple of weeks after install. I got a replacement and it has been running without issue for quite a few years in my HTPC. That was my only failure of ~20 SSDs I have had.
An OCZ Vector I have ran into a firmware bug and I thought it was dying, but four years plus after the update running everyday it hasn't had a hiccup and still shows 90% of drive life left.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

What brand SSD were those you broke? Of the approximately 40 SSDs I've had (still have around 39), I've never broken one and the connectors seemed plenty sturdy.

My old 830 has well over 4.8TB writes on it and no signs of any failure. Still on 99% health. My other 2 840 Evo's and 850 Evo are also going strong. Only one I've seen "breaking" was a crucial MX100 which didn't survive a car trip to a LAN. It worked fine the night before but after a 280km drive it showed up in disk manager as a 0b partition and never recognized any usable storage space again.

If you're overclocking and something hasn't crashed while testing yet, you aint pushing hard enough!

My first Crucial SSD MX500 few months ago, I love it how Windows OS boot up fast.

I have 1 SSD for Windows OS only, I don’t put anything important files or games on same drive and some HDDs for games, program files, video editor, media, to keep data separate and reduce lag, stutter, record video etc..

You can have more SSDs, HDDs and other media storage to keep safe.

Windows OS and Games on same drive is very bad idea.

Recently my 500GB SanDisk Ultra boot drive just died, that drive had maybe 50 hours power on time, fairly new. I use SSDs ONLY for boot drive . I know mechanical drives aren't the fastest but for storage they are still the king.

I've upgraded a lot of computers to SSDs, probably at least 100 or so. I've had a few that were bad drive from the beginning and I just exchanged them. I don't believe I have ever had to replace an SSD because it failed.

So in my experience if you encounter a problem with an SSD its probably going to be right away. They rarely die, so far.
