comment Fusion Drive Setup: Possible to force the HDD to spin down as long as your reading from/writing to the SSD?
Because of this Fusion Drive is not the path to choose. Unless there is some true software caching available, splitting the contents with System, Apps and Caches sitting on the SSD, and User data residing on the HDD looks like the much more promising approach. See this video for instructions on how to set this up.

comment Fusion Drive with SSD and HHD Hybrid Drive (e.g. Seagate Momentum XT 750 GB with 8 GB SSD): Good idea or plain nonsense?

I just learned that the Fusion Drive "technology" is a lame duck, not a serious caching solution taking full advantage of the SSDs capacity. According to this credible report "the algorithm seems to be: Keep 4GB SSD space free, push down items to the hard drive to maintain that 4GB.", which means once the SSD is filled, there is no optimization in terms of any frequently used data -> SSD, any untouched data -> HDD going on. This renders my above question, at least to me, obsolete.
