Except using ssds for large scale storage is too expensive to be worth it.

I'll use a ssd for my os, programs, ect. For primary storage hdd all the way. A 4 terabyte hdd is pretty affordable, getting that much storage using ssds would cost as much as most people's entire build.

I just replaced a 2TB Hitachi Ultrastar that was the loudest hard drive I've ever owned. It also vibrated so much that the dust filter on the bottom of my case would rattle and buzz. In fact, the vibration could be heard through the floor if you went and stood in the room directly below.

The 3TB WD Red that I replaced it with is absolutely silent when not seeking.

Hitachi drives all the way babyyy
WD are pretty much just as good though

Costs more, and I use RAID and make regular backups so not worried about reliability.
