Not in such a clear way related to usage.  You could have a SATA disk that you
write to 24 hours a day and it could last for years.  With an SSD, you'd be
certain to kill your disk in months if you treated it like that.

On the other hand, I'd imagine an SSD used for solely reads could last a
*very* long time.
