They have a full order of magnitude advantage over the MLC drives in terms of lifespan. I know they're much more expensive, but they tend to have better sustained read/write and a MTBF up to 2M hours. SuperSSPeed makes some that are somewhat affordable, so it'd be interesting to see if work is being done to certify them.
These SLC drives have consistent high performance sequential read/write performance (good for video) and are apparently very reliable compared to MLC SSDs so they certainly would be worth certifying. If the SLC drive costs double what a MLC costs, but lasts for a few decades instead of a few years, it may be cheap in the long run. Only drawback is maximum 120 GB capacity I suppose. Perhaps that will change.
