SSD is definitely the best option if you can afford it.
SSD Drives are reliable and other that reliability factor, SSD Drives are fast. They will improve overall performance of your machine.
Only negative factor about SSD is that they are a little expensive at the moment, but this factor will be gone in a few months time I think.

Both will still fail however SSD is king! I run all my personal computers with SSD's and all boot in 2 seconds if that! We also run our servers on SSD's and the difference is very noticeable.

I would only pick SSD on performance.

Yes SSD's are very beneficial as the usage of them makes your site load 20X faster.

SSD is much better choise than HDD because of speed, reliability and ability to solve intensive tasks.
Also they can be used as the paging files.

SSD is really better compare to HDD in case of performance. For a production or application servers its strongly recommend to use quality SSD drives. SSD don't have moving parts and that improves stability.

Pricing used to be the big issue, but the gap has narrowed to the point of only a few dollars. SSD has also had a lot of airtime now in terms of marketing, so I think customers generally expect SSD .

The standard choice to this day is SSD, do not choose the opposite. It is not just a matter of higher speeds, less time to access the hard drive ... but also solve bottlenecks and a more important factor, as is the physical ...


Yes! To the physical I mean, is that the SSD not having mobile parts have less percentage of error in relation to the SATA .... Just SSD good!

SSDs whenever possible now. For large amounts of storage you may still want to go with a mechanical disk.

Same here. 4 years ago decided to swap HDD to SSD on my laptop. One of the best decisions I have ever made. As you said: You can notice the difference straight away.

A solid-state drive (SSD) is a nonvolatile storage device that stores persistent data on solid-state flash memory. Solid-state drives actually aren't hard drives in the traditional sense of the term, as there are no moving parts involved.
Hard disk drive(HDD)is a data storage device that uses magnetic storage to store and retrieve digital information using one or more rigid rapidly rotating disks (platters) coated with magnetic material.

yes an SDD drive is just a Flash/Pen Drive in a larger casing, just the same way an external HDD is just an internal HDD in a case
