Solid State Drive (SSD)
An SSD, or solid-state drive, is a kind of storage device used in computers. SSDs replace traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) in computer systems and perform the same basic functions as hard drives. But SSDs are significantly quicker in comparison. With an SSD, the device’s operating system will boot up more rapidly, programs will load faster and files can be saved faster. SSDs are used in personal computers (PCs), laptops, computer games, digital cameras, digital music players, smartphones, tablets and thumb drives. They are also incorporated with graphics cards. However, they are more expensive than traditional HDD.
