HDD vs. SSD – What Is The Difference?
Many customers have always asked me what the difference between the two is, and the saying “a picture tells a thousand words” couldn’t be more relevant here. Or rather, a video in this case. Usually I’m firing my own laptop up in front of the customer and showing them the obvious speed difference, to which they’re always in awe of. But some people are more inquisitive and do ask – how? What’s the difference? And, also when I tell them that SSDs cost more than hard drives by a fair margin, they ask – why?
So following on from our own little write-up on the difference between Hard Disk Drives and Solid State Drives, below is a video that we’ve found on YouTube where somebody better illustrates the differences between the two visually for you. This will finally show you once and for all the obvious reasons for why we need to be heading towards SSDs for our boot drives in our laptops and computers.
