SSD advantages

SSD (solid state drive) is a new technology in data saving. Comparing to traditional HDD, it has several significant advantages. That’s the reason why many users want to migrate OS to new SSD, the primary advantages for using an OS on SSD are:

1. SSD works in much more higher I/O speed. In personal products, the maximum transfer rate typically ranges from about 100 MB/s to 600 MB/s, depending on the disk. Enterprise market even offers devices with multi-gigabyte per second throughput. With this benefit, user can load system less than a minute, even in just seconds. So why not transfer system to new SSD to enjoy such a huge improvement?

2. Even the quietest HDD will emit a bit of noise when it is in use from the drive spinning or the read arm moving back and forth, particularly if it's in a system that's been banged about or in an all-metal system where it's been shoddily installed. Faster hard drives will make more noise than slower ones. SSDs make virtually no noise at all, since they're non-mechanical.
