SSD reliability?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I was just wondering with my new build if I should get a SSD but the only one I can afford in this build is the OCZ VERTEX PLUS 60GB and was wondering if it was reliable. By reliable I mean I won't have a problem with it for AT LEAST a year?

*EDIT* I don't want to be told if another one is better I'm asking about this specific SSD. Sorry if I'm coming off a little rude I'm not trying to be

I believe they have a certain limit to how many writes they can have, but its not likely you would reach it any time soon, benchmarking a SSD constantly is one way you might.

Please correct me if im wrong.
