anybody use them on Gluster?

They seem to be almost the same cost as spinning metal these days. In 
fact I was trying to get some 2.5 inch 2TB drives on a vendor and all 
they had was the firecuda SSHDs or the really expensive "Enterprise" 

Our use case would be for VM hosting (Rep2 + Arb). I'm not sure how the 
SSD cache would pan out with the shards.

I've googled and the various responses are all over the map, but the 
responses range from "can't hurt but probably a waste of money" to "yeah 
we noticed a difference".

And of course most of those reviews were when there was a significant 
price difference.
