[QUOTE=SeÃ¡n;2678056]SandForce controllers also provide the benefit of data compression to reduce wear & tear on the Flash cells, which works well with Enterprise data. Most Enterprises tend to have highly compressible data, such as databases, text documents, spreadsheets, e-mail and so on, most of which is highly compressible and thus results in very little actual data being written to the Flash cells once compressed.
Consumer data on the other hand typically consists of photos, music, games (with pre-compressed data) and so on and many enthusiasts are more interested in getting the fastest SSD than something designed to last a long time in a server.[/QUOTE]
So true - a point well made Sean.
