I prefer SSD because is having a rapid writing, the folders opens at click and the loading screens in games dosen't took too long.

As everyone said SSDs are better for boot time. But you should store big files (movies, pictures, games) in the HDD

Id recommend for just documents using HDD as it has a better capacity to price ration than SSD but then for games and OS SSD may be a bit better but still, Is a bit pricey. You can get 160GB SSDs for about £15GBP on Amazon through KingDian and its very reliable etc.

Having come from a traditional HDD, switching to a NVMe M.2 SSD was a huge game changer, boot, application, and OS all saw huge performance increases. That being said, HDD is still king for bulk, in my virtualization lab only OS runs off of solid state.

SSD all the way! OS and your favorite games, whack them on the SSD as well and you'll see an improvement!

I prefer hybrid drives like the Seagate Firecuda.
My start up time with the firecuda was 15 to 20 seconds and with SSD drives its 40 seconds.
I used 3 different SSD drives but the Firecuda is still much better. Comes in 500gb, 1Tb and 2Tb.

I've moved pretty much everything to SSD.

Also my servers, as it's *much* quicker if you need to run a hypervisor, and multiple virtual machines.

An SSD is much faster than an HDD, I used an HDD for 5 years before switching to an SSD and i dont regret it
