    SSDs are fast and expensive. RAID can improve performance. Whatever you do, remember to back up.

    I use SSD drives in my laptops. It's like "going from dialup to broadband", one review I read said. Very fast. I like them. I did have one fail on me though; total loss.

    We use SSDs but we expect them to fail so we have copies on mechanical RAID'ed storage. The SSDs offer good performance but we only bank on them lasting 8-12 months as we have a high write rate to our SSDs
