I have read that the life span of a SSD is determined by how many times it is written to but that was quite a while ago. Since SSD's have been out for a while have they improved over time in that regard?

Considering a quality SSD (IMO) from Micron/Crucial last longer than one from another manufacturer or are they pretty much all the same?

How many times can a SSD be written to?

Does the size of what is being written to the SSD affect how long the SSD will live, like a bunch of photo's and video files vs. a bunch of Word documents or is it just the file size vs file size makes no difference what the file is?

See other post, but file size is irrelevant. It is how many times the drive is written to...
