As far as I'm aware production costs are the same for HDD and SSD
So this is the reason SSDs are still so expensive? The fact you don't need autistic backup systems to let you sleep soundly at night?

    I've had a couple ssds just randomly fucking die on me in my lifetime. No warning no nothing. Just dead, unreadable, unbootable. Conversely when an hdd is dying I've always been able to know about it well in advance. So I really don't think anything you said is true.

      same, two SSDs just died on me, both were MLC with good controllers, one from samsung and one from adata
      both unreadable and not detected by system, both lspci and dmesg are completely silent of them

      They're 3x the $/GB than HDDs

        That just means they cost more than HDDs, not that they're expensive.

    Neither of those is universally true.

    your main storage system should have RAID and you also need a separate backup storage system.

    when my sata storage ssd died I couldnt start windows with it connected or connect to it when I hot swapped it in and it even slowed my system down to a crawl when I tried.

    That's just one failure mode, doesn't mean it can't fail in other ways as well. The only SSD that failed on me just died completely out of the blue, one day it was working 100% correctly, next day it was completely dead, didn't even appear connected to the computer. Tried different cables, tried different computers, nothing. Shit was 100% dead and gone. I've had HDDs go bad too (significantly more than SSDs) but I haven't had one just die quite literally overnight from 100% functional to 100% paperweight in one single step.

    I also had another SSD which at some point just completely lost all data, but was still working afterwards and still works to this day. This was one of the very early ones though, one of those OCZ Vertex 2 64GB drives I think.

      Sounds like the partition table got corrupted.
      Rare, has happened to me on a few drives; HDD or SD cards.
      Sometimes recoverable, you can use tools to find the backups of the partition table.

      My first HDD failure was one that head crashed one morning after turning my PC on.
