SSD vs HDD
Solid state drives provide substantial benefits over traditional hard drives, and DS makes it easy to see why!
SSDs are the ultimate way to "feel" the difference in your everyday multimedia performance!
Still confused about all the hype surrounding SSDs?
Wondering why SSDs are better than HDDs?
Hard drives consist of various moving parts making them susceptible to shock and damage, while SSDs use a non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted on a circuit board and are shock resistant up to 1500g/0.5ms.
And because SSDs have no moving parts…
While HDDs take longer to access data because of their need for the disks to spin, SSDs can be up to 100 times faster as data can be accessed instantaneously resulting in total system acceleration.
In fact… SSDs are BLAZING FAST
A faster system boot, file copy, virus scan and more…
A faster read/write time with your favorite media apps
Aside from better performance SSDs have other benefits
SSDs are more RELIABLE
One universally accepted metric for measuring SSD reliability is known as an “annual failure rate.”
Exhaustive studies have shown that SSDs have an annual failure rate of tenths of 1%,
while the AFRs for HDDs can run as high as 4 to 6 percent.
SSDs use LESS POWER
UMC Xtreme Will use less power and run much cooler
SSDs are COOLER
Thanks to no moving parts and completing tasks faster, SSDs run at cooler temperatures.
