    Some SSD firmware has serious bugs. For example, an Intel SSD I have, when it was released had an issue where it would accumulate massive amounts of data writes. Eventually Intel released a firmware update to fix the bug.

    I have one of those SSDs. I found the firmware update about a year after it was released.

    Intel 535 series.
