Talk about timing. I'm right now recovering data from my first SSD failure (an almost three year old OCZ Vertex 2). As failures go, this couldn't have gone better. I'm able to read the drive, but I can't write to it. I wish all drive failures were this nice. I'm having Newegg overnight me a Samsung 480GB SSD as a replacement. I should probably think about replacing the two SSDs that are older than the one that failed, just in case.
Just this year I've lost two 1TB hard drives, and one of them somehow corrupted my (thankfully backed up) RAID 5 making it unrecoverable. So, I decided to replace the older consumer grade 1TB drives with 3TB WD Red drives (supposedly enterprise grade), and what do you know? One of them is dead on arrival. WD replaced it with a "recertified" drive, which is annoying, but at least it works.
I also lost a Blu-ray drive, so it hasn't been a good year for my storage devices, but so far my anecdotal experience has SSDs with better reliability than mechanical drives. YMMV.
