Great price and in the need of one.
 But skeptic to buy this vs an SSD.

Storage Drive Type
Traditional, mechanical hard disk drives are the most common type of storage because they're relatively inexpensive and offer huge capacities. However, they also generate both noise and heat. Solid state drives, also known as SSDs, are many times faster than hard disk drives and have no moving parts to wear out, but typically offer less capacity for the same price.

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

IMHO, at the price SSDs are compared to HDD, I'd prefer to get 2 HDDs (and backup everything twice) and it be cheaper then a single SSD. Unless I need it to be (more) portable or especially fast.

What I actually have is one probable hard drive with everything backed to an additional plug in external. And some stuff and USBs or SSDs

I hear you.

 But for all that extra work. Speed, weight, damage less prone. And smaller.

 Might just be worth it.

 As the saying goes, You pay for what you get for.

It depends how much data you need to store. The more you store the cheaper it is to use HDD
