Default AC clutch relay problem - replace the full compressor?

Hi folks,
The AC clutch relay in the compressor has failed in my 2005 Honda Odyssey (80K miles).

My mechanic is offering me the choice of replacing just the clutch relay or replacing the entire compressor. Labor cost is comparable. Parts cost is $350 vs. $900 (includes condenser, etc.)

I live in Texas, so the AC is definitely heavily used. Does anybody have any idea of the average lifespan of a compressor? If it still has a few years, I'll take the cheap route. But if the chances are good that I'll have to go back in there in a year or two, I might as well do it all now.

Any comments, suggestions are welcome.

Many thanks!

CB
