SSD is about 4x the price of spinning disks, so that might be something to consider. Also, don’t forget backups – especially for ‘home-made samples’ and other files that you have created. One approach is SSD for fast everyday access, copied onto a spinning disk for backups, and you need to decide about the backup interval (continuous, daily, weekly…), incremental or full backups, retention policies (’round-robins’!), as well as proper backup scheduling software utilities.

Every disk I have ever owned has failed eventually (always suddenly, never with any warning). Recovery of data from them has been… disappointing…

This stuff can’t be repeated enough: Do you have a backup of your work? Is it somewhere well away from a flood, fire or other event/person that kills your main computer? Do you have a disaster recovery plan?
