MTBF is not the question (it's good enough, OK for a server). The  
number of charge changes of the storage cells is limited (different to  
that of real hard disks). You can achieve that limited number of  
changes in a few hours and store the zombie disk in your laptop for  
another million hours... still an ultra-fast read-only device! (This  
turn was much easier achieved with floppy devices.)
