I would agree they wear faster than steel sprockets but I've only run 520 sprockets which you'd expect to wear faster than 530 stuff anyway (since it's narrower).
If you aren't going to run an aluminium rear sprocket I wouldn't bother doing a 520 conversion as the weight saving in just the chain is minimal.
