HDD vs SSD

Aug 9, 2019 8:59AM PDT

1. According to me, SSD is more batter than HDD. Because, SSD is a semiconductor based storage storage drive.
2. SSD hasn't any rotating parts. That's why, SSD has more lifetime as compare to HDD.
3. SDD performance is very fast as compare to HDD.
What do you think about this?

I'd dispute item 2.

It is possible to wear out a SSD faster than a HDD.

In its simplest form, an SSD is flash storage and has no moving parts whatsoever. ... SSD storage is much faster than its HDD equivalent. HDD storage is made up of magnetic tape and has mechanical parts inside. They're larger than SSDs and much slower to read and write.

SSD is superior to HDD

Apart from cost per storage unit, SSD is better than a HDD. SSDs are semiconductor memory with no moving parts unlike the HDDs with pointer and rotating platters. As such, SSDs are much faster than HDDs. Lifespan of an SSD depends on the rated P/E cycle. Depending on the usage, it can have a shorter lifespan than HDD.

For your use (personal documents, photos, large files) SSD will make no difference in performance.
If you want to use SSDs you need the model that supports F1 that does asymmetric wear. None of the low bay count units support that.

SSDs will be less cost-effective.
