“Solid-State Drive” is an electronic reinvention of the hard drive.
If the initials SSD fail to make your heart beat faster, you haven't been following the latest technology news. SSD stands for "Solid-State Drive," an electronic reinvention of the hard drive. And your PC wants one.
No Moving Parts
Samsung’s latest electronic technology is aimed at replacing hard drives with sleek SSDs-solid-state drives that use NAND flash memory. Dropping an SSD into your PC is easy, especially if you choose a vendor that designs its SSDs to use the same interface as a standard hard disk drive and with the same physical dimensions.
Fast is Good
SSDs can help to improve your computing experience by significantly upgrading many aspects of PC functionality including performance. For office staffers or students working on a netbook or laptop, that means minimal time waiting for the computer to boot up or for data to become available. And laptop warriors will be pleased to note that SSDs use far fewer amps than hard drives.
Because SSDs have no moving parts, SSDs have few potential points of mechanical failure. Also, SSDs are virtually silent, which makes them great for PCs in living areas.
New operating systems (particularly Windows 7) take advantage of their high speeds, that means the best time to consider sliding one into your computer is right now!
