SSD isn't the best thing for backup. Use normal spinning drives. There are people who will say SSD is less reliable for long term storage. If you can afford an SSD it makes more sense to spend the money on more duplicate backups on normal HDDs.

In any case backups don't need the ultimate reliability, they need to be duplicated. Reliablity helps, but don't bargain on it.

Thanks.

I have had a slightly similar view.
