hdd led is pretty useless tbh

no, it's useful in many situations like when your computer feels slow and something in background is actively running on the a drive (doing constant read / writes)

it even shows SSD activity, literally any kind of storage device, HDD LED is just the name because at that time (when it was introduced) there were not SSDs

It's useful for knowing if your PC has crashed or just loading up, for example by screen is just black, so I press random buttons on the keyboard and see if it causes any activity on the HDD

Please tag me @RTX 3090 so I can see your reply

Many cases and prebuilts doesn't include one. I guess the industry is thinking it's not -sexy- enough and that including it may lose them sales because it's not RGB HDD LED....?
