Default mechanical vs ssd : the test of time!

say you were to buy old stock, one of each, a mechanical hard drive and an make it easier, say we're in the year 2020,or 2030,whatever,some time in the near future.

now, when you plug your drive in,say it was made 5 years ago but you just opened it up,wouldyou notice
any difference(performance etc) vs you plugging it in 5 years prior,i.e. right after it was manufactured..?
if 5 is not enough, how about 10 years? not enough? how about 20?

i figure ssd's shouldn't degrade much that fast, but the mechanical drives probably would...what say you? yes,you!
