Enterprise drives are optimised for random IO though aren't they?  WAY higher IOPS than consumer drives if I recall correctly?

Yeah on its release date it would have had a clear lead but bear in mind SSD's have advanced, this will be comfortably ahead on things like database writes (which are usually synced on every small write for data integrity).

On ZFS e.g. this will not only shine, but also have much lower write amplification as fsync increases amplification.

One of my scratch drives in my NAS (which was the boot drive until I upgraded the PC) is at 39% wear which alarmed me, until I realised that's after 3.6 years.  Which considering its a bargain basement Crucial P1 500GB, that's really not bad.

The P3 2TB which replaced it as the boot drive only 8 months ago is now at 2% which again can seem scary seeing a number go up, until you realise that's 33 years if accurate.  I'm sure something else will fail on the drive before the NAND at that rate.
