Ssd is better for speed and reliability can last for a decade easily (except some worst models)

SSD is better for speed but not reliability. To be used for short term transfer of data during transfer of data. Many users lose their daya within few months due to SSD failure.

HDD is slow but certainly more reliable for storage of data in the long term.

SSD always. Also I don't think anyone will vote for HDD.

From personal experience, the oldest HDD I currently use is from WD (Western Digital), a 320GB since 2011. There have been no issues to date with transferring data, etc. I was using it with an i7 processor and 4GB of RAM. Two years ago, I replaced the HDD with a Crucial SSD, 256GB in capacity.

The new combination of 256GB SSD, i7 processor, and 4GB RAM has resulted in a significant speed increase, less heating, decreased boot time, and smooth operation. The WD 320GB HDD is still in use with another laptop.

Additionally, I am using two external HDDs (Toshiba 4TB and Maxtor 4TB) for data backup, both purchased in 2015, and both are working smoothly without any issues to date. I have been using one NVMe in another laptop since 2021, but it got corrupted within two years, and I had to purchase another one.

In my opinion, SSDs are always good for speed. Since both SSDs and HDDs are digital products, they can be damaged anytime. Therefore, I recommend backing up data on the cloud and keeping one copy on an external hard drive (HDDs work best for me).

Use SSD for Windows and programs, and HDD for download directory, pagefile,  movie and games
