I hear that ssd's gets broke if you do basic computer functions like using a defragmenter , or registry cleaner, dick/track cleaner.
So im wondering if this is true? I want to buy a SSD but I want to make sure I dont brick it first week?

You better do a search and read up. There are many good articles.
But never defrag a SSD.

1. Defragmenting a modern 3rd generation SATA 3 6Gb/s solid state drive is not necessary or recommended. An ssd is not the same as a hard disk drive.

2. You can safely use a good quality registry cleaning utility. I use one that is part of System Mechanic Pro from I have mine set to perform routine scheduled maintenance every Sunday morning. It runs in the background. No muss! No fuss! No bother! I am sure there are other excellent utilities that are satisfactory.

3. Most of the click & track cleaners erase traces of Internet activity. However, you can do the same thing with your web browser by changing settings so that your web browsing activity is erased every time you close your web browser. In addition, you could change browser settings so that you surf anonymously. On top of that, there are bundled utilities like System Mechanic Pro that do the same thing as a click & track utility. You'll notice that I mentioned Internet activity and web browsers rather than an ssd. The idea is to erase all traces of web browsing activity so it is actually a data file management process rather than an ssd process.

4. The only negative I have experienced is the cost of ssd's. The first ssd's cost more than $2.00 per GB. Current sale prices are down to just a little bit over $0.50 /GB.
