Long way to go before they are common.
4k will need broadcast tv and major internet infrastructure developments before

We run a multi-terabyte SSD array for some very performance critical data. While they are expensive (about double the per-megabyte), they are extremely fast. 12 months in they have been *very* durable as well. Failure rates far below what our hard drives are seeing.
My laptop is a pure SSD as well (so "main hard drive"). At 500 GB it provides the storage I need, is performant, and extremely fast. A year in on this it's been just fantastic as well.
