RE the DAW maker’s posts regarding SSD reliability in the Gearslutz OWC or Samsung Evo SSD thread, they are long on opinion but sadly lacking ANY stats.
Realtime writing to SSD, especially multitrack, is still a challenge for some SSDs
without specifically citing to which ‘some’ refers, they are effectively impuning ALL SSDs, leaving a reader with no idea as to how to tell the difference. They have done all SSD manufacturers and their readers a disservice.
Unfortunately, in a forum, too many self-professed ‘experts’ expect us to accept their opinions as fact, without any reasoning or stats to back them up. Not good enough! Don’t accept their opinions at all in that case, as you have no way of determining their veracity, except by going to someone who can back up the claims, in which case the former’s opinions re the matter are redundant.
So, still waiting on why SSDs might be unreliable for project drives, or any evidence that supports such an opinion.
I don’t expect anyone to accept what I write as fact, but as something that they could possibly take into consideration, so I expect them to take responsibility for their own decisions. Many of my opinions are based on reasoning from first principles rather than direct experience, so I expect that if any are incorrect, the errors will be pointed out with other reasoning and/or facts.
