Here's the summary of why SSDs are prone to this.
The barrier to entry on manufacturing a platter-based magnetic drive is really high. To make even a shit-tier platter disk, you need clean room manufacturing facilities with tight tolerances. That's why while even the crappest traditional hard drive might fail early or be slow, it won't catch fire. The lowest bar is still really high.
You can literally make an SSD by hand with purchased chips, a hand-soldered board, and commodity components. No clean room required. The barrier to entry is about the same as any other crappo electronics.
You won't see a traditional hard drive with a garbage power circuit: it wouldn't save them any money. But a low-tier SSD? That's fodder for bigclive.
