Solid State Drives, or SSDs, are being discussed everywhere you look and for good reason. They represent the most significant change in the internal make-up of a portable PC in many years. Not only are they faster and more reliable than conventional hard drives, but they are extremely tough, making them much less susceptible to shock if they’re jostled or dropped.
But I suspect many of you have already heard about their performance advantages as many journalists have been writing SSD reviews lately. Some reviews are pages long while others are short and sweet. Regardless of the level of detail, they all seem to underscore the overriding value proposition inherent in a SSD: markedly improved performance and rugged design, which means that they clearly out perform and they clearly outlast.
While the technology is relatively new, we’re proud that our SSDs have been getting solid reviews from independent journalists. I’ve attached four of them here for you to peruse when you have a few moments.
Once you do, I’m interested in hearing your feedback on the value of an SSD, particularly if you’re like most of us and simply don’t need more than a half terabyte of storage space over the lifespan of your PC (typically 4-5 years). I look forward to hearing what you have to say. Are you considering an SSD for your next PC?
