I'd say it's going to be longer than that. Die shrinks actually reduce the lifespan of solid state disks, so capacities aren't going to go up without some new innovation, and price of NAND memory doesn't seem to be dropping very fast.

In any case, SSD's are still worth it, the performance gains are very good.
