I'm happy to keep my full Calibre libraries on SSD. I also use one of my older SSDs for quick copies/backups. I do backup to HDD, but that's more like a scheduled overnight task or when I'm not pressed for time. Not a need to make a copy and get out in 5 minutes kinda thing.
for sharing your test to us!

Yep, putting your library on a separate disk helps a lot. Replacing that dedicated disk with an SSD doesn't do all that much extra. Write actions are a bit (batch import) to a lot (batch OPF writing) faster, that's about it.

To cut a long story short:

To speed up Calibre operations, put your library on a separate disk if it isn't already. That's where the big win is. If it already is, don't bother upgrading that disk to an SSD just for Calibre; the gains aren't really worth it IMHO.
