SSD – Solid State Drive – For Best Performance of Your Computers by Himanshu Goel

Solid-State Drive (SSD) is also known as a “Solid-State Disk”or “Electronic Disk”, though there are no actual “Disks” present in the Provided Hardware, but it is a data storage device that uses integrated circuit assemblies as memory to store data persistently. SSD technology uses electronic interfaces compatible with traditional block input/output (I/O) Hard Disk Drives(HDD). The SSDs distinguishes them from traditional magnetic disks such as hard disk drives (HDDs) or floppy disks, which are electromechanical devices containing spinning disks and movable read/write heads, as these SSD’s do not consist any moving mechanical components but uses a Integrated circuit, and thus performs much better when Compared with electromechanical disks, SSDs are typically less susceptible to physical shock, they are usually silent, and have lower access time and latency at the time of Boot Start or in case of any Software/Application.

Despite of Quality & Performance, the price(s) of SSDs has continued to decline in 2012 recently but these SSDs are still about 10 times more expensive per unit of storage when compared to HDDs. (Currently Statistics of 2013 states in Delhi,INDIA that A cost of 60GB SSD is 120% that of a 500GB HDD).

In the Above picture you can see how SSD is at a high-performance than a Normal Hard Drive, also, Solid-State Drives (SSD) boost your PC to the next level in storage performance and reliability which shows a Improved PC responsiveness. Along with this it has a Great Tendency of Transferring Data Faster & More Devices at One Time without Slowing down the Machine or creating an Error ‘Not Responding’.

SSD Is A Better Choice

  • Up to 66-percent faster PC compared to those using Normal Hard Drives.
  • Faster Boot-up, Application Launch, and Re-loading due to high transfer Data Rate.
  • Uses NAND Flash Memory which is a type of Non-Volatile Storage Technology that does not require power to Retain Data.
  • No moving parts for higher reliability and longer life span.
  • Rugged enough to withstand bumps and shocks without losing precious data
  • Lower power consumption extends battery life so you stay mobile longer as no mechanical working is there to utilize the Power.

This above shown pic Shows the internal portion of a SSD. These SSD’s are working via Integrated circuit which shows lesser power usage and more durable in cases of movement of your Laptops or Shifting Desktops with doubts of loosing your stored Data. These SSDs share the I/O interface technology developed for hard disk drives, thus permitting simple replacement for most applications of your Computer System.

Now-a-days SSD’s are also available with the SATA-3 Compatibility for more faster than ever Computing in Today’s World.
