no.

SSD prices for a comparatively very slow harddrive. It's pretty bad.

Why would this be better than SSD for enterprise use?

because some need more speed than regular drives (5400rpm-7200rpm), yet don't want to spend silly money on SSD (and we're not talking your average 256GB SSD drive here) and also....wait for it....reliability.

That's just a rip-off. Get a SSD, they will fly compared to this serial. Samsung 830 series is meant to be one of the most reliable drives around, read some expert reviews dude.

that drive is quite reasonably priced for what it does. (not considering floods and stuff)

SSD isn't exactly "silly money". Intel's 480GB 520-series is only £100 more, for a little less storage, but massively superior performance. Intel tend not to put their name on unreliable goods.

so you would use consumer SSD in enterprise environment ? good luck then...

have a look at how much Intel charges for 400GB 910 - that's an enterprise solution.

or even 710.

oh wait, I'll tell you. It's around £1000 for 300GB.

You'd need a SLC SSD for enterprise, which is ££££s (something like this - linky). The cheaper ones (MLC) sold to enthusiasts aren't anywhere near as suitable for enterprise equipment. You'd be building you house on sand with a cheap SSD.

yes.

my initial point was though, that there is still market for 600GB 15k drive for less than £300 out there.
