I think you need to do some research.
Good SSD's ARE reliable. Good SSD's are more reliable than hard drives. The Samsung 830 SSD has endured almost 7 petabytes of constant read/writes before it finally refused to power on, and then it was only because the guy testing it had to power it down because he was in the process of moving. He said he had no clue how long it would have lasted had he not had to power it down.
I don't bother with over provisioning...that's why I bought a Samsung. Most people don't bother with it anymore, since the last couple of generations of SSD's anyway.
