The 'combo' drives show almost no benefit over standard mechanical drives. As for the longevity of 2.5" drives, well, I have used them for many years and they have been as reliable as any other drive.

I have no idea what a "peg" SSD is. Perhaps you mean the M.2 internals?

Yes peg connecters are the holes where your videocard will set place in.
If you have a motherboard wich have 2 pci ecpress lanes then one will fit into one ssd harddisk.
like this kingston harddisk see picture.

it fits into your second pci express lane.
These harddisks are very fast and have a high mtbf.

I would claim that MTBF ("mean time between failures") of an SSD is not really related to how it is connected to the system or how large its case is in general. They are all essentially the same, in terms of how the data is stored.
The main problem with PCI Express SSDs is that not every operating system can use them as the system boot drive. But if you have an OS that supports them, sure go ahead and use them. PCI-E definitely has a higher potential throughput than SATA. Just notice that those are the most expensive SSDs (2x and more per GB of storage compared to SATA SSDs) out there. Then again, if you have the money, you can get an SSD similar in size to today's large HDDs. But for consumers that's usually a waste of money.

Yes you are right wormbo these harddisk are very expencive.
Ill wil keep with mine magnet drives.
I was thinking also to use a ssd harddrive into mine system.
Will the computer much faster with boot time and general use i doubt it.
And if you wanna install the system on a ssd, the question rizes wil it be much faster?
If i take a ssd it wil be a 1 tb drive,and they are not cheap also.
It also depence how fast the drive is and wich memmory modules are they made of.
They have no moving parts on them maby in the future they last longer.`
It also depens on on wich sata connector you install a ssd drive.
Mine magnet drive is connected to a sata 600 connection.
Those ssd are compatible with sata 150 and 300 also.
Wich os?,il running windows 10 x 64

While those PCI-E SSDs are pointless for "mere mortals", an SATA SSD is not. Boot time, application start-up time, map load time, they all benefit a lot from an SSD.

And like I said: I bought my first Intel SATA SSD almost 5 years ago. It still works perfectly.
There's a saying, "Those who buy cheap, will have to buy twice.", and it is definitely also true for SSDs.

Yes, with that SSD Windows was booting very fast, and so I could also wait faster :lol2: for coming up the network and joining the domain ("no domain controllers available").

Intel ssd harddrives are the best tested.
And they are prety fast also.
Just like you said ,if you spend more money on the drive you will comes to the prize segment of intel.
They are the best value of money when spending these on a serious drive.
These intel drives are the best tested in general use.
The intel postville drives are very good, but ofcourse you will, pay for it.
