Hard Drives vs. Solid State Drives

Although solid state drives have been around for many years, many buyers are still asking how they differ from the typical hard drives. Hard drives use an old-fashion magnetic storage technology where data is stored and read from the surface of a moving disk. Hard disks are also called mechanical disks, since they rely on mechanical movement to read and write data.

Although hard drives have been the staple technology for data storage in the last several decades, they have seen decreasing popularity and sales due to the development of solid state drives. In contrast to hard drives, solid state drives have no moving mechanical parts and instead rely on integrated circuit assemblies for persistent data storage. Since they have no moving parts, solid state drives are less vulnerable to physical damage. They are also quieter and faster. However, they are also much more expensive.

Lastly, hybrid hard drives combine the capacity of hard drives with the speeds of solid state drives. This is done by storing a bulk of the data on the traditional rotating disks, while the most frequently accessed data are stored in high-speed NAND flash memory. This results in SSD-like performance for your most-accessed files. Hybrid drives are generally a little more expensive than traditional hard drives, but cost much less than solid state drives.
