A Solid State Disk (SSD) is the latest storage technology to enhance laptops, PCs, Macs, phones and servers. SSD hard drives store digital content, such as music, video, photos and games and allow super quick access.
There are many advantages of SSD drives over hard disks. SSD has no moving parts and are more durable than traditional hard disk drives. SSD drives are sturdy enough to absorb bumps, knocks and falls without suffering serious damage. This makes them especially suitable for portable devices such as notebooks, laptops and phones.
SSD drives offer low power consumption which means they do not generate as much heat as Hard Disk Drives and are quieter as they do not require a noisy fan to keep cool.
SSD drives access and retrieve data much faster than traditional hard disk drives. SSD offers faster startup times and read/write speeds. Installing a SSD drive is one of the most cost-effective ways to accelerate any desktop's boot, shutdown and application load times.
Not only is the performance of a SSD based device increased due to its speed but also the battery life is increased and the high performance of the SSD drive is maintained throughout its entire life.
With these extra benefits comes additional cost; Solid State Drives are currently more expensive than traditional hard disk drives. Prices are dropping fast and SSD drives are now becoming more affordable. SSD drives still have some way to go before they can be considered mainstream. As prices are now getting lower, popularity will increase.
