I'm using SSDs as the C drive for my one year old desktop, a Dell XPS 8900. The machine came with an HHD drive but as soon as I got the machine, I replaced the spinning hard drive with a 512 GB Samsung 950 SSD M.2 hard drive. It inserts in a PCIe slot on the motherboard rather than via a cable like other SSDs. It has been trouble free and every fast
I replaced the HHD in my HP Pavillion laptop with a 1 TB Samsung 840 EVO SSD. That boosted performance considerably. It's a 4 year old machine. I swapped drives after a year and a half.
My 15" Macbook Pro came with a 500 GB SSD. It too has been fast and trouble free since I bought it in 2013.
I still use spinning hard drives but not as my primary drive. My main desktop has 2 large HHD drives in addition to the HDD.
My servers also use 4TB and 5TB HHDs.
The HDD swaps that I've made were done for speed, not reliability. I did have one Crucial 100 GB SSD fail in another desktop machine. Crucial replaced the drive in short order at no cost.
