An electrical engineering friend of mine advised that a longer lasting option to replace one's MacBook Air hard drive would be to buy a 1Tb Samsung EVO with Nand Gate Flash. See http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/SSD/global/html/ssd840evo/overview.html for more on this product. Jevon recently installed it on his old Macbook Air as a more durable option, since 'it's about the durability of the read/write ie how many writes can you do before the logic block corrupts'.

An example of upgrading a MacBook Air instead of treading the Apple consumer 'new-laptop-every-three-years' treadmill!
After nearly four years, my MacBook Air seemed nearing the end of its lifespan. Despite using MacPaw's CleanMyMac to clear unwanted files and Gemini to identify and remove duplicates, it had become impossible to keep the recommended 15% free diskspace available (or 36GB of 240) and performance ...
