That's not true. What's true is this:
This option enables extremely aggressive write caching that will speed up the hard drive's performance, but it can also cause you to lose data in the drive's cache if you lose power suddenly. It is not recommended for laptops that run on battery power all the time. While this is fine for the normal home desktop, it may not be a good idea if you have unreliable power.
So if you lose power, you can lose data, but that happens anyway if you lose power whether you enable this feature or not. Enable it; it's fine for home systems. I would purchase a UPS though, not only for this, but for overall system health.
