I would just add the whole thing ignores that big old rotting elephant in the room which is HDDs? I have found that in damned near every case, not all but most, will give you PLENTY of warning before it goes completely tits up whereas the SSD? One day its working and the next....nothing. No warning, no noise, no indication at all that there was a problem just...poof, buh bye data. This is also ignoring the fact that if the circuit board fails in a HDD you can swap one out for the same model and get it back in most cases, at least long enough to get the data, the SSD? Hope you are good with a soldering iron and a chip reader and I have heard even then its unlikely.
I may be just a little country shop guy but when my gamer customers have all experienced multiple failures when it comes to SSDs, and these guys don't go cheap, sorry but ATM I still don't trust it. I tell folks if they want an SSD don't have anything on it they would feel bad if they lost, now does that mean there aren't still uses for SSDs? Of course not, for one thing if you have a laptop where most if not all of your data is in the cloud? Knock yourself out, just make a weekly disk image so you can re-image when it goes tits up and you are golden. I also have several customers that have bought either hybrid drives or that Sandisk caching drive for Win 7 and in both of those cases they have seen pretty big speed boosts while not having to worry because if it dies all you do is go back to HDD speeds as it is just a cache.
Oh and one final thing....its gonna get worse. its common knowledge that with each shrink the number of writes goes down and the number of failures go up and with all of the major chip companies seeming to only care about how many bits they can stuff per nano-meter? The failure rate WILL get worse, you can count on it. Its too bad that SLC is so insanely high as those seem to have lower failure rates than MLC but as long as all the companies care about is getting that GB number up at all costs its really not gonna be getting better, its gonna be getting worse.
Ironic that they talk about how supposedly high HDD failure rates are when I cleaned out a how drawer of them before moving into the new place, we are talking drives going back to Quantum Fireballs in the 200Mb size, yes Mb not Gb, and they all fired up. granted some of them were noisy as hell but I could still get files off of them while not a single one of my gamer customers have their first SSD, they are all dead. yes i know its an anecdote but I'm not the only one that has seen this, coding horror calls SSDs the hot crazy scale as you trade red hot performance for crazy failure rates. Call me old fashioned but I think I'll just pick upa caching SSD and keep the 5Tb in spinning rust, thanks ever so Intel.
