None of the SSD's are/will be as durable as spinning drives for writes 
.... That said, the SLC type are more durable than MLC or TLC .... Also 
more $$$$ & usually only available in smaller sizes. Good for a root 
drive, i.e. mostly read-olny operations. Swap & everything else on 
spinning platters ....
