SSD or Solid State Drive is a new type of highest storage device of a computer. The sum of a typical highest storage, it has a big capacity and you can connect it also using the SATA connections. The very difference of this drive is, the typical Hard Disk Drive is using an inflexible platter to store the data or instruction. But this Solid State Drive is using a chipset of IC’s to store a large amount of data.

The same with the IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) HDD and SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) HDD, you can use this also as the main storage or the stationary drive of the operating system (OS). Many users said that this SSD has a good performance most especially when booting an operating system like windows. And it is also good for running any stored games in SSD. It has a popular capacity of 128 Gigabytes and 240 Gigabytes. Its available type is only SATA.

  • As this SSD drive is a bunch of the chipset of stored data, be sure to put a UPS on your computer to avoid the damage caused by a high fluctuation rate of AC voltage and surge.
  • There’s an issue of longevity, because this drive uses NAND flash IC’s, it is not easy to rewrite a bunch of data stored on this drive.
  • You can use SSD as the main storage of the operating system and also your backup storage of your operating system files and windows.
