This thread made my Friday.
I think you might be talking about this thread
I own no SSDs. I am not yet convinced of their reliability. They are also too expensive. The speed is nice, but really, how much speed do we need? There comes a point where more technology is only there to boost sales, like white iPhones and dual core CPUs in smart phones. All it is really good for is making a bigger price tag. I do not care much about the manufacturers claiming X million hours MTBF, all I know is I see people ranting about SSDs failing early.
So I'll stick with old fashioned hard drives for a few more years yet.
I have been running dozens of IDE/SATA/SCSI drives for about 20 years now and in all that time I have only had two drives completely fail on me. The rest got too small and are now paper weights or were moved out due to upgrades.
I can't justify the cost difference versus performance when you can buy 2 identical SATA drives, run Raid 0 and be just fine.
