So is using a SSD a good idea in 2020 or should I stick with a good cheap HDD?

 

Would using a SSD for TV recordings and emby storage kill it after a couple of years or has the tech moved on?

 

Trying to keep my system both quiet and power efficient.

For your main system drives that your programs run on, yes absolutely go SSD. For media storage though it's not necessary.

Was asking more about how durable SDD's are for constantly recording, watching, deleting recordings.

Have one as the main system drive and there must be constant micro file activity there. With media data it's much larger files but less activity so was just curious if anyone had any experience.

Honesty I haven't had any real issues.  They work or they don't, no inbetween.
