if you know how to properly take care of it, there are no issues

my main rig went through vista sp1, sp2, then win7 with no reinstall. and it boots within 30-40seconds on HDD.

I make a backup of C drive every two weeks of all my PCs, in case something goes bad, i can restore it.

in two years or so, I only had to restore backup maybe 3 times.
