I regularly check the SMART values on my HDD's and pretty much
know which stats are relevant to failure (reallocated sectors being
one of them).

Can SMART drive stats be applied to SSD's? If so, which SMART
stats are relevant to predicting SSD failure?

Did a quick search and Kingston, Intel and Samsung easily popped up and neither of the three was in truth alike. Naming of menu items varied greatly. You would do better to look for specifics of your particular SSD.
