I've done both stripes of high end MTRON pro SSDs and for most uses they aren't really much faster than my Torqx 256GB. One app that went a *ton* faster was mysql, databases and their fairly random I/O just seem to scale up almost infinitely with extra drives.

Real world boot tests look good (almost 10 sec nothing to sneeze at). Everything else does not justify additional cost for most users, except epeen benches.

Muxing/Demux'ing movies has incredibly fast as well. But unless you have a 1000 blurays to do, it isn't worth it.

You are muxing/demuxing blurays on your SSDs? You know that each bluray has to write about 45-80GB each time? Do a 1000 movies and you'll likely kill your drives

10,000 writes to wear out a drive. With a MLC drive, SLC drives get you a 100,000 writes per cell.

Edit: Most bluray movies are only 20-25gb, single layer. Also, if you are ripping them to x264, you are only reading that data and then writing 4-8gb.

Ya most are around 20GB after you remove all the extra shit, soundtracks, etc. So you rip the movie to your HDD There is ~ 25GB. You demux them and remove all the extra shit, another 20GB of data written to your drive. You then remux them in to an mkv container, there is another 20GB. So there is 65GB written to your drives. Do that for 100 movies, that is about 6500GB written.

You could rip,demux,mux all in one step, but then you'd be doing it about 10-12mb/s. Which would be a complete waste on an SSD.

are you ripping/demuxing/muxing all separately or are you ripping/muxing at the same time? Are you doing all of them to your SSD's? When I was doing the work on my SSD's I was doing all three at the same time. Which was 250MB/s reads + writes at the same time. Disk queue was always above 10. If you are dolng only one at a time, I never saw stutters.
