Don't count on it. The OCZ Vertex 1/2 were both unreliable drives. My Vertex 1 died within four months, and a few of my friends had terrible luck with the Vertex 2's. That Sandforce controller is no good in the Vertex 2. I wouldn't rely on SSD life.
The Vertex 1 has the Indilinx controller, like the new ones do, so it's pretty reliable. I still have one of those in my laptop, and it's still chugging along. The Sandforce controllers are what gave everybody nightmares. OCZ just didn't seem to figure out how to deal with it via firmware until the 3.
