Speaking of Crucial M500 in the UK the price per gigabyte is:

120GB 65p/GB

240GB 58p/GB

480GB 54p/GB

960GB 47p/GB

 

So yes, if you need that sort of capacity, speed and silence.

It's certainly better than buying 2x480GB, 4x240GB or 8x120GB!

Why does anybody need that? That's just overkill. Get 128GB SSD and a 1-2TB HDDs.

I've got a 256 and a 180, had a 64 as well but moved it to moms box.  I wouldn't mind another but don't feel the need right now.

It's still not price efficient to buy such a large SSD. It's cheaper to have a SSD boot/app drive, complemented with hard drives for data storage. 

 

I'm in the process of going SSD's only in my desktop, and moving all my data to the NAS. I have a 256 GB boot/app drive, 80 GB drive for Steam/games (will be replaced with a 256 GB SSD), and then all my data is moving to the NAS. I'll probably repurpose the 80GB for music/misc. storage.

instead of saying a 900GB+ SSD isnt worth it, perhaps we should ask what the main purpose of the drive is.
