Solid State Hard Drives – Really Worth The Cash?
I’ve been looking at solid state hard drives lately. They’re faster, less prone to failure, and of course infinitely more expensive then their IDE or SATA counter parts. If you’re not really sure on the difference between them then here’s the run down.
Original standard interface hard drive. The pros of this device are that they’re are super cheap now, but that’s about it. Many mother boards still have IDE ports, but in a few years they will most likely all be SATA.
Much faster than the IDE version, with space savings cords, and assortment of sizes for a reasonable price. The most popular option right now, but still have their flaws. While speed has improved they are still big, clunky, fairly noisy, and heat generating.
Solid states are becoming very popular in mobile devices among computers related business directories. They’re basically flash memory modules of a larger size. They’re much more compact, super fast, very quiet, silent, generate almost no heat, and many of them use an amazingly small amount of power. Which in turn allows for smaller power supplies, less noisy fans, and overall more pleasant computer experience. Right now the technology is new, and anything of around 100GB or more will set you back several hundred dollars!
Using Solid state drives the smart way? For now, the best way to use the data features of a solid state drive is to not use them for housing data. Instead many people have installed Windows and other programs that need fast read and write access to the SSD and kept all their space heavy files on cheaper storage methods. A tablet with access to a cloud network, or even a portable hard drive can run like a dream on a very small solid state drive. I’m sure in the future the price will go down substantially, and I think I’ll be holding out for a while.
