A mechanical HD is always slower than an SSD, but it's really not feasible to populate your system with SSDs. Most buy one for the OS, games and apps. I suppose some may buy 2 and it may be helpful if your OS, apps and games surpass the small SSD sizes. 256GB should be plenty.

Certainly no need for SSD for a 'storage' drive.
