[LAU] OT: SSD disk prices have dropped?

I need to replace a hard drive that recently
went bad, and the new drive needs to be at
least 1TB.  I was looking on Amazon and
debating whether to buy a 5400rpm versus 7200rpm disk,
when, just for fun, I thought I would price 
1TB SSD disks.  I started finding things
such as this:

Inland Professional 1TB SSD 3D NAND SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5" 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (1T)
$140 (USD)

Samsung 860 EVO 1TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-76E1T0B/AM)
$148 (USD)

Can I just plug one of these drivex into a SATA plug
on my motherboard and it will function just like
a regular spinning hard disk drive?

If 1TB SSD drives have become so cheap, I don't
understand why anyone would buy a hard drive that
spins anymore, but maybe I am missing something.

Am I missing anything?
