I am glad that all of you finally came to that conclusion. There are too many sagas floating around regarding the "fragility" of the SSDs.

Agreed. I plan to long retire my SSD due to it's small size long before I come close to wearing it out. I think we as techies worry and exaggerate the amount of wear and tear we place onto our machines.

I agree. I know WHS has 2 of the 1st gen SSDs, but some of the 1st gen, did have some issues. But, 2nd and 3rd GEN are pretty rugged.

This is without a doubt an interesting subject. My outlook is this, at the moment SSD's are relatively small and compared to HDD's very expensive. The only real use for one is as the main drive with Windows installed on it which allows the user to benefit from the extra speed.
This is however going to change SSD's will grow in size, the speed will also increase, the price will keep falling and my upgraditis will sometime get the better of me.
When I upgrade there is no way I am going to just stop using the SSD's that I already have. Because of the small size, using them as a secondary drive is at the moment not an option. I plan therefore to use my drives as backups most likely using USB3, but due to the speed limitations I may well connect them internally.
I see in the not too distant future that HDD's will be used less and despite the cries that there is no point using an SSD as a secondary drive it will become more common place.
SSD's have a limited life, just how limited is unsure at the moment, so it makes sense to me to use this life sensibly.
I look forward to the day when I have superfast backups and data transfers. Even if my drives only last 6 months longer I feel that I will be getting a better return for the high price that I have payed out for this pleasure.
Just my two cents

I remember thinking the same thing about my first 250GB and 500GB standard hard drives and now those are long gone.

I just use it. If I paid for it, I want to use it. I don't limit my use, I make sure that I get my monies worth out of it.

I still have one 250 GB drive it seems like I bought it a long time ago, but it can only be maybe 3 years old and it still has plenty of life in it

Now the Xtreme Systems SSD testing thread will be joined by a C300 64GB and a M4 64 GB, this will be a great addition to the testing.
Will be interesting even though they have a lot of catching up to do.

I registered at xtremeforums so I can ask questions if and when.
If they need any help they can come post over here.
I'll let all of you get them straight.
