Cannot agree here. I would never go back to HDDs for regular work and never use a HDD for any OS. If you only see a improvement in OS booting time, then you probably dont need a SSD at all. I use HDD only for data-storage, because its still unbeatable price per GB. I dont mind if a SSD would fail (never happened in 6 years), because SSDīs are my power horses and they dont storage important data over a longer period. They have done their job perfect, if they shuffle tons of GB in a fractional amount of time a HDD needs.

I do video editing and my setup uses 3 SSDīs. One of it, is a NVMe with the OS and the rest are "regular" SSDīs for footage, scratch and output. With plenty of RAM, i also use a RAM disk with SSD. This combo is very noticable, when it comes to time sparing. Its at least 40% faster and not only by booting a OS, I feel it all the time while working.
