What is a Solid State Drive?

A Solid State Drive, or SSD as they are also known, is type of storage device used in computers and laptops. They are designed to store a machines operating system as well as a means of storing a user’s data and files. Solid State Drives are phasing out original mechanical hard drives as they are much more reliable and run much quicker leading to a better performing computer. There are two different kinds of SSD, standard and M.2. They both do the same thing but connect to a computer in different ways. The standard connects via a SATA cable and M.2 has a specific connection port on a motherboard.

How and where can a Solid state drive be used?

Solid state Drives can be used in laptops, home or work computers and gaming PC’s. They vary in size from 120Gb, 128GB, 240GB, to 1TB, 2TB, 4TB for example, with the higher capacity more likely to be used on a machine with a lot of data or a gaming PC to store game data.
