Here is a great article on the lifespan of speedlights: http://strobist.blogspot.com/2013/02/will-your-flash-last-forever.html
What a complete load of misinformed rubbish. This is to be completely ignored. My 580EXII's must be up over a few hundred thousand pops. My year old Einsteins DO have an odometer...they're up around 40,000 and they're probably barely run in. My Profoto monos definitely are in the several hundreds of thousands on original flash-tubes. Capacitors and boards are more likely failure points. Even so, flash gear of any description is famously reliable.
