SSD Hard Drives

SSD (Solid State Drive) hard drives are faster, more reliable and much more efficient than normal hard drives (HDD). Very reliable and durable SSD hard drives are able to withstand knocks and shocks which makes them ideal for using in laptops. However they are now increasingly found in desktop models as they provide very quick start-up speeds and silent operation. Another big plus point is how easy they are to install into your computer case.

The Difference Between SSD and HDD

There are two basic differences between the two types of drive is how they are made and how they store data. Unlike an HDD a SSD hard drive has no moving parts which means there is less chance of breakage.

And those moving parts are how an HDD stores and accesses its data whereas an SSD hard drive uses flash memory so it can store and access data much faster.

SSD drives are also much more efficient because the lack of moving parts means they need less power to work which, in turn, means a longer lasting battery in your laptop.

Your SSD Hard Drive

If you need more speed from your PC than a SSD drive will be ideal for you. And Solid State Drives are available from a large number of manufacturers including big names such as Samsung, Kingston and Sandisk. They come in a wide range of specifications with different capacities, interfaces and form factors.

Many SSD hard drives come in a 2.5 inch form factor which is ideal for laptops. For a desktop PC you will need a bay adapter though some other form factors are now available. Capacity wise there is a wide variety available though 256gb drive is a popular option.
