  I respectfully submit that you give real hard drives another look.  I
routinely put 15+ year old SCSI drives in machines and I cannot recall
the last time I had one fail.  This is not one or two...I'm running
about twenty now.  With the wear specs on the flash chips in SD cards,
the drives will likely last a whole lot longer in a workstation
configuration where the drives are getting hit hard. (as opposed to a
data logger in a Raspberry Pi or something like that)
