    Why SSD? Don't they burn out faster than HDDs?

    (maybe that problem's been solved since the last time I checked)

    Pretty sure one of mine has a 5 year guarantee/warranty and the reality is they can last for like 10 years. No moving parts, the limited write/read capacity was only a problem for the very first generations.

    They do burn out. As cardgame says they have got loads better, but there are some applications where it is a significant factor. However they are so much faster now, with an M2 interface I think they can get into the GB's a second read speeds, they are the way to make a system feel so much faster. It seems to me like more that 10 years of processor improvement.
