Nice looking drive I would love one Yes SSD drives make all the difference. I have over 2.5 Million active files on my macs in my one man office. (GCC for cross toolchain on 9 core platforms.) My Main workstation is a ten year old I7 with 4 x 4Tb drives arrayed as 2x 4TBMirror Raid and one 120GB MLC boot drive.I could really use the extra space for working files. Currently I mount 24TB of active storage to this desktop over network. Each of the San servers uses SSD boot drives and separate SSD /var mounted partitions. When opening folders older than 1 week the AFP protocol caches the DB to the /var partitions, using generation one SSD the delay can be as long as 15 seconds for the folder contents to appear using 10K drives took as much as 90 seconds. I am sure that a fast drive would make my life easier.
