I've been hearing that the 330 series is very reliable. How does the 335 pair up against the 330 in terms of reliability?

Should be similar. Smaller NAND process = lower durability (fewer writes per cell before they start to fail) but improvements to wear leveling (controller + firmware) will about balance this out.

Intel isn't going to knowingly release a substandard drive - they don't want to deal with excessive warranty repairs plus lose their reputation as making some of the most dependable drives available.

Both drives should easily exceed the 3 year warranty (same for both, if that tells you anything).
