I think the issue is writes. Having to write to a cell requires higher voltages to "impregnate" a bit into that cell, which can lead to degradation. If you use your SSD as only an OS drive then you shouldn't be having too many issues. If you download a lot, save your files to hard disk directly, instead of pre-storing them on the SSd and then transferring them over. Also, now is a good time to look at TRIM, as it does save a lot of hardcore writes over time.
