Many of us have this question What should I buy in 2022? SSD or HDD? The present trend is moving fast toward AI, ML, and Automation. Developers & researchers are creating, and discovering many new ideas, and gadgets to make human tasks easy & fast.
While buying Laptops or Desktops, we often search about them in many areas like Price, Performance, Life, Battery capacity, Storage, etc.,
SSD(Solid State Drive) latest technology to Store data like other storage devices do, but SSD will really change the needs that the user wants. See How and Why?
What is HDD?
HDD means Hard Disk Drive which stores data in the form of electro-mechanical. HDDs have a mechanical part like a disk, a needle-like pinpointed on the disk plates without touching to disk. Platters are paired with magnetic pins and spun, this way the data from the disks is transmitted.
Due to its high-speed movement in the disk, there is a high chance of risk of damage. If the rapid moment or if it fell from some height the disk may get damaged and data cannot be retrieved easily.
What is SSD?
Before discussing SSD we need to know why storage devices play a major role in every electronic device.
Just for example, If we take a picture the color sensor in the camera will convert the data into binary format and send it to the Microprocessor then store it in DRAM to process image processing or video processing. In this situation, if there are no storage devices present we can’t able to process an entire image in the future because DRAMs can’t hold data for a long time and they don’t have much storage to hold.
In such cases, we use storage devices like Pendrive, CD or DVD, HDD, or SSD.
Basically, they all do the same work like storing the received data from the controller and sending data to the controller or others simply called reading the data or writing the data as per the instructions given by the processor.
Here you may have a Question. Why should I pay more money for SSDs while other devices are available for a low price? To understand this we just compare to storage devices that are used in every laptop or desktop now, they are HDDs and SSDs.
We can see a lot of price differences in HDDs and SSDs, where for the price of 256GB SSD we can get 1 to 2 TB of HDD. Can’t able to believe it right. Yes, it is true, but there are better features in SSD let’s discuss them now.
Why should I buy SSDs but not HDDs?
SSD will store data in cells or store data electrically but HDD will store data in a mechanical disc. Here any moving parts will not last for a long time, so it is better to store data in non-moving parts like SSDs if your data is very important to you.
Other than this SSDs will offer…..
- A faster transfer rate means to download and upload speed is more.
- They will give long life.
- Less power consumption.
- Noiseless and Small size.
