 My interest in two SSDs was purely, as Malch put very well, to spread the work over multiple spindles during photo and video editing.  Except that with SSDs not actually having spindles, I suspected that this would not be nearly as beneficial a strategy as it is for a pair of HDDs, which he has confirmed.

There are theoretical gains - there is a finite number of IOPS for the single SSD drive.  But that number is measured in the 10s of thousands it seems, whereas for a hard drive it's less than 100.  I think it takes a much more substantial load then LR creates in order to see the payoff for more drives.
