Solid state storage drives (SSD’s) are where it’s at these days. Most higher end laptops will usually come with an SSD installed over an HDD (Hard Disk Drive) because they generate nearly no heat, they’re more efficient, have faster read/write speeds and are less prone to failing. The reason SSD’s are better than HDD’s is because there are no moving parts. A traditional HDD is made up of platters and arms, the arms write data on the spinning platters so lots of potential for breakdown there. SSD’s are made up of chips (flash storage) so data is written through electrical signals, significantly less chance to break. Up until recently SSD storage was very expensive and most people just stuck with the cheaper HDD’s or even went with Hybrid drives (small amount of SSD storage, usually 8GB, for system files/resources and HDD storage for everything else).
Now OCZ is introducing their OCZ Trion 100 line of SSD’s and these things are coming in at very affordable prices. Check out the specs and information below on these solid state drives. The pricing chart is right after the graphics and video.
