FAQ
Q: Solid-State Drives: How do they differ from hard drives?
A: Crucial SSD (Solid-State Drive) technology delivers the benefits of flash technology in a completely different way.
More reliable, faster, and more durable than traditional magnetic hard drives, our SSDs are a forward-thinking solution for mobile users-users can't afford to lose or corrupt the data stored on their notebooks. Likewise, SSDs are a great alternative for the PC enthusiast who is always looking for the very best in system performance.
Q: Why an SSD?
A: Put simply, SSDs are flash-based drives that offer greater reliability and faster performance than traditional magnetic hard drives. SSDs (Solid-State Drives) are data storage devices that utilize non-volatile NAND flash memory for computing applications that traditionally rely upon a mechanical hard disk drive. In other words, data is not lost when the power is turned off. Crucial SSDs are designed as industry-standard drop-in replacements (via a SATA connection) for hard drives. Consisting of just NAND, a controller, connectors, and a PCB, the SSD has no moving parts, creating greater stability by eliminating the mechanical delays and failures associated with a conventional magnetic hard disk drive.
Q: What are the advantages of an SSD?
Superior reliability - The continuous motion generated by multiple moving parts creates heat, which is a leading factor in hard drive failure.
In fact, hard drives are one of the notebook components most likely to fail. Because an SSD does not have moving parts, heat dissipation and noise are reduced or eliminated, resulting in a very rugged and reliable offering compared to a mechanical hard drive. SSDs also have extreme shock and vibration tolerance, and their operating temperature ranges meet or exceed that of standard hard drives.
Instant-load performance - Without the moving mechanical parts that cause latency issues, SSDs are not impeded by spin-up, seek time, or rotational latency. This equates to faster boot times, faster application loading, and greater overall system responsiveness.
Quiet acoustics - With no spinning parts, SSDs provide for silent operation, similar to a standard USB flash drive rather-than the constant, noisy humming of a mechanical hard drive.
Q: What Operating Systems (OS) are supported?
A: SSDs are not dependent on an OS. Crucial SSDs will run on any system supporting a standard SATA interface.
Q: What is the endurance of the drives?
A: • 64GB up to 36TB (36TB = 20GB per day for 5 years)
Q: What does all this mean to the average consumer?
A: In general, this new portfolio of SSDs will enhance the overall user experience for flash-based notebooks boot-up time, application loading, file loading, image browsing, etc. will all be faster; battery life will be improved
and the complete system will be more reliable.
