Post SSD Drive opinions... worth it?

any opinions out there on solid state drives? Getting a macbook pro and the reliability looks tempting. Any thoughts?

Adobe doesn't recommend them for scratch drives due to the read/write speed discrepancy. And they have a limited lifespan (they literally wear out).

But where did u hear that they wear out? I ask because longevity is the only reason I thought about getting one..Thanks!
