I think the SSD life would still outstrip that of the machine itself.
The issue that I see is the lack of trim commands and would be a problem with a dvr that writes and reads all the time.

That is a shame. Myself I have no reason whatsoever to switch to the 8XX model.
The loss of the front display and the Esata port are enough to keep the 6xx for as long as I can.
