So i'm still working with the spinning rust at home when it comes to storage.. i've started experimenting with zfs which has been pretty impressive performance wise but i heard SSD is really where it's at for running nodes.

Sometimes i fall out of sync, wondering if this may have to do with HDD performance, does anyone have any results they can relay that would convince me to take the plunge?

I'm an "aint broke don't fix" kinda guy but could use some more storage lest i clean house in some long forgotten corners of my partition table.

I tend to only use SSD for the operating system itself of for laptops.

e.g. / is SSD but /home is platter

Platter drives are just, well, a lot more space for the buck.

I hereby reserve the right to sometimes be wrong
