so ssd must be used in some sort of raid? and pray SMART works?

The failure modes of each drive were different as well. The Intel drive entered a self-destruct mode to prevent it from being used after it was no longer able to guarantee its ability to reliably write, while the Kingston HyperX 3K threw SMART errors and vanished after a reboot. The Samsung 840 simply died without warning. However, it’s worth repeating that the failures didn’t occur until the drives had passed the manufacturer’s stated lifetime write limits many times over—it took almost a year of solid torture-test writes to get them to failure.
