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!
How could something "mechanical" degrade if it was never used?

Only reason anything degrades generally is if becomes used
