Yes, that's the impression I gathered from what I've read about them. They may not be 100% reliable over geological time, but they'll last a lot longer than their mechanical forebears and take a lot more physical abuse--and they're a lot faster. And keep in mind that this is a relatively new technology: reliability and capacity are bound to improve, and the price will come down, the same way it did for hard drives (and most other computer hardware). I'd be willing to bet that mechanical hard drives will be headed the way of floppy discs in 4 or 5 years; but maybe it's just wishful thinking.
