You know SSDs are gonna put your RAIDs outta business by xmas, right ??
Try a Corsair P128 for scratch (flas latest firmware and always leave 20% free for TRIM Mangmnt
... Hope you are gettin a great price on the 20 ... else go 30

I kinda doubt it. Sounds to me like SSD efficiency degrades over time with multiple writes. No data will be written (by me) to the OS drive.
I want to give one a try but don't want to design a system around an un-time-tested tech.
Naw ... It's good dope ... I just think it's old dope.

TRIM keeps everything all fresh and MUCH more reliable (not to mention way faster).
How long did you think those Arrays were gonna last, before catastrophic crash.
... No matter ... it's just scratch ... Anyway ... MY SSDs will start slowing down (just a little after the 1st "fill up" ... then stay steady until it starts to degrade ... about 5 yrs ... you see a few bad reads ... and it stops writing ... you can still read it and back it up for months after. Much faster ... more reliable ... no need to short-stroke or make that fast outer partition ... cause the whole thing rocks.
Be sure to leave 20% free for TRIM Management (always) ... It refreshes the "erased" cells in background mode.
