Not saying your wrong that there should be some standard tests between the 2 but they are different parts and have to be tested the way they are supposed to be used.

But to use the car analogy it's like doing this: Ascari A10 - Video
SSDs are still to pricey and volatile for a lot of people especially the non-techy people. They want something reliable and frankly a lot of the SSDs out there still have too many issues.

Only reason I'm running an SSD is it was used and cheap and a good brand.
