Should SSD's run in RAID 5?

Last Modified: 2019-12-06
I wanted to know if it would be smart to run Seagate Nytro Enterprise SSD mixed use drives in Raid 5
I have read mixed reviews about running ssd's in Raid 5 on a server. The server will have a few VM's and be a file server as well.
The drive I was looking at is the XA1920ME10063
