I was just looking at moving to SSDs last night. I'll probably wait until the new Intel drives come out later this year. However, I have a serious question. Right now I run two drives in RAID 1, and I do full system image backups every couple of days to an e-go via USB. My question is, does it make sense to run RAID 1 with SSDs? My concern was that I would just be wearing down both drives just as quickly, without any striping benefit. However, if what you say is true about frequent SSD failure, then RAID 1 actually appears very smart. Thoughts? Also, when these SSD drives fail, what do you do with them? Return them or chuck them out, or do you reformat them and wait until the next falure?
