that might be technically true, but assuming there is free space on the disk all of this happens unnoticed on the background. You shouldn’t be seeing performance hits day to day, and certainly nothing that would perform worse than HDD.But one thing to know, when a file is "deleted" off a HHD, a new file can be written on that same space right away (like milli-seconds).
When a file is deleted off an SSD, it takes the SSD time to fully "reset" the same space for a new file, so it might take up to a few minutes or up to an hour (rough guess) for a new file to take the same place (SSD features called Garbage and TRIM).
