SSD (Solid State Drive) discs are used very commonly worldwide nowadays. Come with me to look at the advantages of these devices. Here’s a quick summary of what you’ll get with these SSD discs:

  • Faster boot of OS’s
  • High stamina as you don’t have any mechanical parts
  • Low power consumption
  • Quiet operation
  • Faster read/write


Faster Boot of OS’s

With the SSD, we can reduce opening and restarting time of the OS. The starting time of the OS in a SSD is approximately 30% less than a standard HDD.

High Stamina

SSD discs don’t have any mechanical parts. From this standpoint, SSD discs resist impact events. The electronics in a SSD disc were produced to endure these type of events.

Quiet Operation

Again, we say that SSD’s discs don’t have any mechanical parts, so we don’t hear any noise, friction, sound, etc.

Faster R/W

These discs are faster than other HDD discs – as much as 5x. The read and write speeds are increased enormously.

  1. Wow nice one

  2. Expensive though 🙂

  3. What about the security aspect?
    As I understand it, securely erasing specific data from a large SSD is a tricky proposition.
    Another concern is the limited number of rewrites available with SSD. I have heard that it isn’t an issue in many scenarios, but using SSD for things like cache or spool files can significantly shorten the device’s life.

    • It is true. But on the other side HDD is weak for the magnetic field and physical effects. As a before I say, this situations can vary from person to person. Thanks for reply…
