Reliability of SSDs vs HDDs?

I am going to do a big upgrade on my computer and I want to get on the SSD bandwagon. However I remember reading a couple years ago about reliability issues with SSDs. I trust those have been ironed out by now? Is there any brands or models I should look at for the sake of reliability? I need this drive to last and be error free.

  1. SSDs are much more reliable today as some years ago, but OCZ had some issues in the last years and also Intel had a firmware error causing data loss.

    I'm happy with my Samsung 830, but backups should always be done regularly. Windows Backup works for most people.
  2. im currently using a OCZ Vertex 3 240GB SSD and its been working for me.
    one thing i suggest when working with a SSD is to always have multiple secondary drives that you can run your files off of.
    i mainly use my SSD for software installations and games.
    if you manage to use your SSD efficiently, i think it will last you a longer life span than expected.
  3. What are you going to do with your pc? Gaming or professional work?
