Anyone using SSDs?

I have had normal HDDs go bad after a while - at the moment the disk light on my Cortex PC seems to be permanently on, not sure why. If disk access is pretty continuous then I'd be worried about using an SSD.

On the other hand, the noise and maybe temperature reduction (if there really is one) would be welcome, and improving restart time when there is a crash is always good.

Gave some love to my Cortex PC after 2 crashes this week, applied 58 Windows security fixes (nervously), removed the last vestiges of BitDefender. Realised that I'd built this PC in 2010, although it has had one HDD go bad in that time. Since it is thermally stressed in the loft, up to 47 ambient, that's pretty good going for a consumer board.
