SSD. Had to replace my SSD just this weekend as it just suddenly died on me.

Should have taken it as a warning since I lost all my data on it about 2 months ago and had to put it in a different PC to format it and reload Windows.
Worst thing is that when I did a health check on it minutes before it betrayed me, it said the health was sitting at 97%.

Upgraded to a M2 480gb SSD. So far so good.

Eish, difficult one to answer as I have a HDD in my work computer which I use often, however I have SSD's in both my home computer and laptop.

SSD as primary HDD and larger spindle HDD in caddy in optical bay of laptop for storage... cannot imagine life without OS/apps installed and running on SSD, 4 seconds boot to desktop is expected by me now.

Everything has been replaced with enterprise-class SSDs because I am tired of hard drives, especially Seagate 2TB ones that have a high failure rate, I am slowly replacing everything with SSD, including drives in the NAS

SSD in all 3 that are currently working.
Then an old IDE HDD in the one that's just standing there
