Default SSD for video drives

Except for the cost is there any reason not to use SSD's for video drives?

SSD's have limited write numbers which is why it is not recomended to defrag, in fact IF you can make a program defrag the drive it makes no difference
Best used just for Boot/System drive and let the drives trim function take care of it

write cycles are limited but how relevant is that in a real world situation? I would think for not all day everyday use they would be ok regarding write cycles. Don't a lot of servers now use SSD'S?

Don't know about that, when I decided to use one for the Boot drive I was told to get the largest avaialable as it would make the drive last longer as any BAD cells would be identified and not used?
I don't run a "Page File" so the only writing is the Temp folder and "Restore" files which windows controls, or updates
I could turn the "Restore" off on the Boot drive as I do a backup when ever a Program update has occured and is working properly, but I have also found Restore has been good in the past so it gives double insurance
So far no problems, only time will tell, the only way to tell if it works over a long period for Data is to give it a try
So far TOO expensive for the size compared to a normal HD
