I'm not convinced the run of the mill consumer grade SLC or MLC drives are going to be ready for mere mortal use on Linuxy / FreeBSD type server for a few more years.
I use the Intel X25-E Extreme SATA SSD's with a Adaptec 5405 RAID card. The X25-E is a server/enterprise grade SSD, that isn't horribly expensive. BTW, Intel's current generation of enterprise SSD's only come in two, small sizes 32GB and 64GB.
I'm very excited about the next gen X25-E's, which should come in 100/200/400 GB sizes in early 2011. I personally feel that these larger capacity SSD's will be a game changer for servers, assuming Intel delivers as they should.
