I know solid state drives are loved by many but I don't see why?
Obviously it uses flash technology which is very fast but it is still limited to the supposed 10,000 read/writes that flash technology is said to produce at a maximum. With this, it would be useless to use an SSD for an operating system/files/programs as the drive would have to be replaced after becoming corrupted. Also, the price of a 1tb ssd of a minimum of £200 is also quite rediculous. However, hybrid drives, for me, seam a good idea as long as the flash partition is backed up on the drive!

The life span was debunked as myth.
That is crap that was spewed online when the tech was first introduced.
Not only has it been debunked as false but the newer tech improves things too.

I had one a super mega fast Samsung 256gb but i sold it after year for almost what i paid for it.
I use a bunch of 1TB WD Black's now.. traditional drives (plus misc others old school drives)

FUD first & ask questions later™

Have you ever used a (good) SSD? If not, then stop spreading nonsense. I have one that is 3 years old (in a older system and it is fine). My Samsung 850 Pro is over a year old and has been running constantly in my system. The peformance difference is huge and it does not go corrupt. I'm not sure where you got that 10k read/write from?

It is true that SSD have limited live compared to the traditional hard drives and relatively short live in general.
I think this is fully intentional.

ssds are also way more reliable as they arent and actual disk be written so they have less chance to break down

I've had my SSD running with my OS for about 5 years and I've formated it about 5 times, zero issues.

Most SSDs are designed for much more IO loads than what you stated. It takes a very long time to corrupt most SSDs unless you're writing and reading from the drive constantly over a span of years. SSD consumes significantly less power and have less noise than traditional HDD. Hybrid drive isn't of any use since most of the time, the IO is going to be quite low since you don't always use the exact same file from the HDD.  The speed of a SSD is much much faster than HDD and thus everyone is using it.
