Solidstate Drives

The rapid development of semiconductor media in recent years has led to the fact that SSD drives are seen as a serious alternative to traditional hard drives. Modern SSD drives are compact and easy to use, as well as the ever-increasing capacity. However, most importantly, that these media provide very low access time to any block of data, high speed reading and writing. In the absence of moving mechanical parts, SSDs have lower power consumption and quiet operation. In addition to the benefits of SSD drives can be attributed to the stability changes in temperature and high reliability.

As a result, SSD drives are now seen as the main rival of hard disk drives that are already here for many years used to store user and account information. Market SSD drives is constantly expanding, offering consumers more and more interesting technological developments and, more importantly, attractive prices. We offer you an overview of the popular SSD drives and new products fall of 2010. First of all, merit a popular line of solid-state drives X25-M by Intel. This series of SSD-drives made by technology multi-level cell (Multi Level Cell, MLC) in the form factor of 2.5 inches. Speed reading the information SSD-drives from Intel is up to 250 Mb / s, and data recording can be done at speeds up to 70 MB / sec. SSD-drives in a line of X25-M is also distinguished by relatively low power – 0.15 W in operating mode and 0.06 watts in idle mode.
