I don't know about the current offerings but when I bought mine the Intel SSD's were the only ones to get if you wanted them to last and be reliable. People have had these things for years with no problems. I've had the X-25M 80gb for six months with 0 problems. There may be other good brands now but the Intel is a sure bet.
Like the other poster said the only way you can wear it out is if you are continually writing huge amounts of data, reading data hurts nothing. And I wouldn't disable the pagefile on the SSD, you want to run the pagefile on the SSD for performance reasons and its not going to be writing a significant amount of data. Disabling Indexing isn't necessary either. Superfetch is debatable. Definitely don't defrag the SSD.
"The useful life of Intel SSDs are five years. That useful life is dependent on write cycles. The parameter being 20GB a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year for five years. In other words, if you write a quarter (25 percent) of your capacity (of an 80GB drive) for five years, it will last. If you write less than that, it will last even longer," he said."
Here's an interesting site with failure rates for SSD's and HD's by manufacturer, very recent with Intel still three times better than the competition.
