NotebookReview.com have put together a very useful guide on the pros and cons of Solid State Drive storage
I thought I would put this guide together to help the NotebookReview.com community as SSDs (Solid State Drives) are coming upon us so quickly and the interest seems to be going through the roof. Since my first article ‘Comparing SSD Performance to Mechanical SSD Performance in a Dell Laptop’ and consequently, my follow up to that ‘Showdown at Big Sky — Sandisk 32GB SSD Vs. Seagate 160GB 7200RPM HD’, the interest in the SSD has become overwhelming with respect to messages I’ve received from people, questions and advise given.
Instead of continuing to answer all of those questions individually, this guide is an attempt to answer basic questions about SSD that people have.
The solid state drive is here and it’s not going away soon. The SSD, much like the Internet when it first came to light, was originally touted as a passing phase. It has quickly found a position where, if manufacturers can find the lower prices, higher storage capacity and availability, the SSD could threaten the mere existence of the HD. The first obstacle of performance was surpassed long before many knew what SSD stood for.
There appears to be so many benefits that we just cannot ignore the SSD on a business or personal use level. Although it will need to gain a foundation in the spiderweb designs of small and large office networks, the simplicity of the SSD lies in the absolutely lightning speed in which it accomplishes its tasks at the individual user level of both.
Quicker startup, incredible performance, no moving parts, less heat, longer battery life, incredible reliability and durability will soon enough conquer the obstacles of price, storage restrictions and availability.
