Yes they are. Just have look around in the world of cameras and
smartphones where people suffer from losing their photos just because an
SD card decides to fail. I have several failed SD and CF cards, as well as
USB bars. And many flash cards will fall into a read-only mode when errors
cannot be corrected anymore, in contrast to real disk drives where you can
skip the bad areas.
I just had a look on some datasheets for industrial SD cards. ATP gives a
value of 384 TBW (terabytes written) for SLC and 38.4 TBW for MLC devices.
For a 32 GB SD card, this means a max. write count of 12,000 for a byte.
SanDisk give 192 TBW for their Industrial XT, that is even worse. A 64 GB
SD card would only support 3000 writes per byte before you begin to
Soooo... here I come again with my preference of PATA/SATA drives. If you
really want a non-rotating media, then I suggest that you use SATA SSDs.
Hence why I prefer a controller/interface with PATA/SATA connectors ;-)
You are totally free in using rotating or non-rotating media.
