Default Solid State vs Disc

Are there ANY disadvantages to SSDs versus the traditional Hard Drives besides cost?

1. They have a shorter life-span: the flash memory has a limited number of times you can write to it. This is called "endurance."

2. In case of a hardware crash, on a hard drive a specialized firm can still recover the data, as they are written to a magnetic disc. On an SSD, data recovery in case of a hardware malfunction is harder and may be impossible.
