How often do you replace your SD cards?

I've had the same two cards for almost 8 years, always formatting the cards in the cameras, never intending to replace them.

A few months ago, I got a strange card read error from one card. I couldn't see any images. However, on the computer, I could see the images. I formatted the card (always in camera) and everything seemed to be OK.

A week later, the same thing happened with my second card in my other camera.

Helpful information.

Do new ones have decent reliablity?

I do not know. Why wouldn't they?

Because I find that, in general, some things aren't made the way they used to be. For example: appliances, my 10 month old laptop (signs keyboard is going). Don't know about SD cards since I haven't bought one in so long; just inquired.
