    I didn't see the degree of daily usage mentioned—big diff between say my usage and a server's usage.

    I'll stay with SSD for OS and programs for the speed, HD for data storage for the price. Imaging and file backup are the guardians against failure.

    4 years vs 1 year.
    4 years vs 32 months.
    Some work on data consistency is required methinks.

    cheers, Paul
