Hi, boomer

I think you're correct about the speed advantage of an SSD over a rotating hard drive.

For what I understand, a rotating disk drive has an data "access" time(the time for the disk's data to be picked up by the head....and a "seek" time(the time to position the disk head at the proper cylinder).

Added together, they equal the rotating disk drive's delay.

An SDD has none of these delays.....nor is it as prone to mechanical shock.

Perhaps the SSD's Achilles heal would be the total number of times it can be "re-flashed" with data upon writing such data.

But that will increase as the SSD tech progresses.

I like my SSD drives on my laptop....have worked like a champ.

Cheers
