Another ditto. For most people SSD drives are the only way to go, unless you are building a server farm and then cost and IOPs play into it and you know what you are doing. The number of SSD drives I have had die on me and my clients ove the last 40+ years (going by percentage) is minimal, no moving parts.

I use large arrays of solid state drives without failure. Recently there were chip issues with some manufacturers, but it should be sorted out now. Early generations of SSD had more failures and mechanical disk spinning as fast as 15k rpm were a better choice. Today, mechanical is still better priced but SSD is available in 2TB or larger drives.
