Main Differences between SSD and HDD

Since HDDs have moving parts like read/write heads, if you shake the drive violently, it tends to be corrupt easily. But on the contrary, SSDs have no moving parts at all, so it can safeguard your data in many accidents like shaking or falling off.

Although SSDs capture larger share of a market in recent new laptops, HDDs are still dominate the market due to older systems and low budget.

SSDs offer better read/write speeds than HDDs. It can express in many conditions. For instance, a computer equipped with SSD will boot faster and launch apps faster than the other ones which are equipped with HDD.

As HDDs have spinning disks and moving read heads, even the best drive will have little noises. But SSDs have no noises at all, because they don’t have any moving parts and are non-mechanical.

Similar to the foresaid case, SSDs with no moving parts are much cooler than HDDS when running.

Dealing with Vibration
Research shows SSDs can better withstand the vibration than HDDs due to no moving parts. It is believed that SSDs can withstand 10 times more vibration than HDDs.

Data Recovery
Although SSDs have many advantages owing to its non-mechanical feature, it cannot offer data recovery after the deletion. But data in HDDs can be restored by apps or specialists. For instance, if you delete an important email in Outlook, and you want to attempt an Outlook recovery to retrieve the email, you can either resort to experts or third party tools.

As hard drives usually use more established technology which is older than SSD’s, they cost much less than SSDs. For example, if a 500GB internal 2.5-inch hard drive costs ₦10,000, above an SSD of the similar capacity will cost you more than 5 times.

Storage Capacity
The SSDs capacity is generally between 32GB-512GB. But the conventional mechanical HDDs have larger capacity that is between 10GB-4TB. Thus if you have a large demand in capacity, then HDD is a better choice for you.
