Crucial promises that the MX500 will provide you with a “faster, cooler, and quieter computer” thanks to its adaptable pool of high-speed flash memory to generate blistering speeds. We also love Crucial’s integrated power loss immunity, which preserves all your saved work if the power unexpectedly cuts out, giving you that added reassurance.

^^ kernel panics are not about the hdd or the ssd, it is about code, and the optimized ways to use it.

sigh...

HDDs use the centrifugal motion of the platters to generate electricity after losing power. This electricity is needed to park the heads safely onto the parking ramp or parking zone which is coated so as to prevent stiction or other damage to the heads. If the platters are spinning up at full speed, it'll have more than enough juice to park the heads safely. However, if the power goes off and back on in repeated succession the platters may have just started to spin back up in the last power on and haven't yet reached full speed. So the spinning of the platters may not have enough potential energy to power the parking sequence. In such a case the heads often become fused to the platters.

So. Fear not the "panic shutdown", fear brownouts and storms...
thank you for taking the time to explain this.
