Interesting, have a look if it states the write access time spec in the
datasheet (if available) of that SSD? Though when I've looked for
write access time on off the shelf SSD drives it usually only mentions
throughput or reading.
Do you know if it slows the build if you use it for the source code? If
your not sure it's a sandforce or has similar wear levelling then
obviously don't try it in case you wear it out, though as it's your
root I don't suppose you will try it.
