There is a really good presentation about SSD and Cassandra on youtube by Rick Branson. I highly recommend watching it.

Seek performance is the big hit and if it is sequential it should not be seeking and is about just as fast as an SSD in theory).  In practice, I have not measure the performance of one vs. the other though…that I always the best way to go.(you could write a micro benchmark test with warmup writes and then stream writes to and see how it does without cassandra).
