Ever lose your data due to a bad Hard Drive? Or were you lucky and just had a drive go bad?
Traditional Hard Drive technology is roughly 40 years old. It’s mechanical and was designed for stationary use. Hard Drives weren’t created for mobile use in laptops, phones or iPods. By nature of their design, they aren’t meant to be hauled around when powered up. Data is corrupted and destroyed due to vibration and shock. Their mechanical spinning platters also use precious battery life, generate heat and create noise.
Why bother with upgrading to a Solid State Drive? They’re expensive compared to traditional Hard Drives and their sizes are smaller – much smaller. So what’s so great about them?
