I'd happily pay 2x or 3x the money to get 20x the write endurance.
That only makes sense if you are hitting the write limits. If the drive dies because the bearings wear out after 5 years of spinning regardless of the number of writes, you have just paid 3x the money and gotten exactly zero benefit.
The poster to whom you responded said "SSDs have a property called "write endurance" - their data cells are rated to a specific number of writes. Every time you write, you consume some of the remaining write capacity of the drive. It works like a salt shaker: works find until you run out of salt.", which suggests he's talking about SSDs here, not HDDs. SSDs don't have spinning parts (well, other than the electrons, protons, and neutrons of which they're made
