VARs to make it worth creating a separate SSD VAR directory. I concluded there
wasn't. This was the same conclusion I had come to regarding the US.

Which symmetries are most important in an SSD?
depends on your application. But knowing that these symmetries exist, what they
are, and judging how your selected SSD compares will give you new insights
no such thing as - the perfect SSD - existing in the market today - but
the SSD symmetry list helps you to understand where any SSD in any memory
technology stands relative to the ideal.
