We've discussed it briefly in other threads about older SSD... but are there any general rules or things to know about old components that may fail like capacitors?

Is the risk with old, heavily-used drives or any old drive no matter the hours?

For example a SSD with 500 hours from 2015, is that potentially at-risk of dying components the same as one with 50,000 hours?

Do some brands or specific make\model use better components known to last longer or not cause issue for a longer usable life?
