Replacing Skates

How often do you guys replace your skates on average? I know there are no hard and fast rules on this, but I was trying to get a bit of a consensus on here. I got the skates (Vapor X30s) about 2 1/2 years ago and they are really starting to show signs of wear, but they still feel fine. I think most of wear is cosmetic, but when the skate starts to break down are there parts that break down that you can't see that could lead to some sort of injury?

Also when i do upgrade I am planning on sticking with the Vapors as they fit me well, but I planning on jumping up a couple levels to possibly the X6.0. There is no way I would pay for the APX and the 7.0 is still pretty expensive, but the 6.0 seems reasonable enough. Any reason I should consider moving up to the 7.0 for and does anyone have any experiences with either that they'd like to share? Thanks
