I know why to avoid them and what they do to a PC. I was wondering if they have any value. It would seem if they have no value, they would not be on a PC.
I think I've read that they are most often used in corporate environments, but even then are most often used as a short-term strategy when more traditional drives are not immediately available. Apparently, they are quite complex and subject to failure, so are not normally used over the long term.

There appears to be little to no use for them in a standard home PC situation.
