What are the benefits of going with an SSD vs HDD?
SSD’s Are More Durable!
Solid state drives are non-mechanical – there are no moving parts to fail! SSD’s are like
big flash drives relying on NAND Flash technology. They are also shock resistant up to
1500g/0.5ms. This is in comparsion to HDD’s which have many moving parts which
makes them more vulnerable to shock and damage.
SSD’s Are More Reliable!
Because SSD’s do not have any moving parts, SSD’s are inherently more reliable.
Moving parts increase the chances of a mechanical issue. Additionally because
HDD’s use magnetic storage, they are susceptible to damage or data corruption
when in close proximity to powerful magnets. SSD’s are not at risk.
SSD’s Are Faster!
SSDs can be over 100 times faster than HDD’s providing almost instantaneous
data access. Retrieving data for HDD’s is faster based off how close the data
is from theread/write heads, while compared to an SSD, all parts can be
accessed at once.
