IOPS and MTBF - Really noticeable?

Didn't see any answers in a search.

First post so no lynching yet!

Looking at upgrading C300 64Gb, so weighing options.

 

Looking at the Force 3 120GB vs some other brands on the 6Gbs SATA.

 

1. Is the difference between others 20k IOPS and Force 3's 85K IOPS something that will be noticeable to the user? If so, what type of app really needs this?

 

2. 1,000,000 MTBF is over 114 years. Is anybody really looking at this when other brands have 2,000,000 MTBF. Seems like those numbers shouldn't matter much.

 

Thanks

A: Yes, Google is your friend and one of the links you will find is a Wikipedia about Iops.

A: MTBF is really a mute point especially when the warranty is 2-4 Years for most SSD's
