there are so many websites and youtube videos that said that SSD will gets slower if they are aging.
but my question is:
how slow it would be? and will it be as slow as an HDD?

thank you for your answer!

Older? Not necessarily.
My 6 year old Samsung 840 EVO's run pretty much the same speed as the 1 year old 860 EVO.
That cannot be said of ALL "SSDs".

Too full? Yes, probably slower. Easy solution, don't fill it up too much.
