QLC drives make more sense than any platter drive. They make sense because the slowest they will ever operate at is at the fastest rate that a full 7200RPM HDD will operate at, and even then it's only degrading to that speed when you're talking about writing over 100GB of files to the disk without any sort of pauses in-between, and then it's only temporary.

They make sense for non-enthusiasts who want a more responsive experience.
