Yes, Prophecy, they do. WEI is a baseline only... it's not meant to be a reflection of real world performance. My RAID 0 array (2 x 500GB with 32MB of cache each) scores only a 5.9, yet I don't notice any slowdown whatsoever. The only real advantage of SSDs that I've seen thus far is the ability to open programs much quicker... other than that, I haven't seen anything that blows me away. People are rushing out to buy SSDs to get that magical 7.x score in WEI without really considering if the cost is worth the performance. Once the price per GB starts approaching mechanical hard drives, then they will definately be worth it.
