yep, exactly this.

a few years ago when everybody was pushing SSD a lot of my friends went mad for it, until they started failing.

every single one of them is now back on regular HDDs, accepting that faster boot times aren't really that important consider how infrequently you actually reboot a machine.

main advantage I can see of SSDs is in situations where you're quite likely to be moving the device around and there's a risk of dropping it, but for a regular desktop machine HDDs are MUCH more reliable and much easier to deal with when they do fail.
