Now, gradual flash chip failure is actually pretty easy to detect and then negotiate (lock the drive to read-only, copy what you can to a new unit, use recovery tools for the rest if needed). But IINM Flash SSDs also suffer from a higher-than-normal rate of controller failures, and controller failures are sudden catastrophic failures: fine one moment, hard-bricked the next, so these need to be taken into consideration as well.
