Bye Bye Spinning Hard Noisy Spinny Hard Drives. Solid State Drives are here.

Unlike traditional hard drives that uses magnetic media to store data, Solid State Drives uses semiconductors to store data.

SSDs are faster and less fragile than current hard drives.

Solid state is an electrical term that refers to electronic circuitry that is built entirely out of semiconductors. The term was originally used to define those electronics such as a transistor radio that used semiconductors rather than vacuum tubes in its construction. Most all electronics that we have today are built around semiconductors and chips. In terms of a SSD, it refers to the fact that the primary storage medium is through semiconductors rather than a magnetic media such as a hard drive.
