    I wouldn't use RAID0 except for temporary, working, storage, even on SSDs. If you are doing 4K video editing, there certainly is a need for RAID0 on SSDs. That's just one example. There most certainly are other good uses for RAID0.

    But overnight, I'd get any of those working files backed up regardless of the storage. Backups aren't optional, ever.

    SSDs, at least the enterprise versions, have a fantastic longevity, durability, performance. But some applications need even more performance. Plus, lots of people are confused into thinking that SATA SSDs have performance near NVMe SSDs, which they don't. For a desktop, SATA SSDs can flood the SATA bus, but NVMe can support up-to 10x more performance on the right hardware, with the right settings. 3000 Mbps vs 32000 Mbps. Big difference.
