Someone did a test with Samsung Evo SSD and had written up to 700TB of data before it gave out. I'd cite a reference but I am on the phone at the moment typing this. Google SSD life expectancy and you will find it. I think SSD are at a good point now that the cost and reliability are worth it.
Techreport did a review at 100, 300 and 600TB stops. Still on going as far as I can tell.
To paraphrase a paragraph of the review:
Test subjects include six SSDs designed for consumer desktops and notebooks: the Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB, Intel 335 Series 240GB, Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB, and Samsung 840 Pro 256GB, which are all based on two-bit MLC flash, and the Samsung 840 Series 250GB, which uses three-bit TLC NAND.
