Solid State Drive Myths – Is SSD better than HDD – Are Solid State Drives More Expensive | BVA INC Scottsdale, AZ 85251

Solid-state drives (SSDs) offer better performance than hard disk drives (HDDs) by some distance. But several myths prevent people from making the switch.

The most common misconception surrounds price. When making a direct comparison between similarly-sized SSDs and HDDs, SSDs appear to be considerably more expensive. However, this is not the case when comparing performance and energy consumption. While SSDs cost more on a per-unit basis, they work harder.

In addition, some organizations are concerned about the lifespan of SSDs. However, with no moving parts, an SSD is less likely to break down or become corrupted. In fact, the nature of solid-state storage makes depreciation more predictable, allowing businesses to plan for the full lifecycle of the device.
