very informative article. Only because I’m not yet familiar with the tech aspects of the information (I did give it my best effort in trying to keep up) I was rather lost. Who am I kidding: VERY LOST!!
But when you got to the “real world” testing, I was able to get a better grasp of just how much quicker the SSD is compared to a traditional HDD.
Just one last question: if the SSD is quiet because it has no moving parts, does that translate into an energy savings as well as a performance increase? With the cost of electricity constantly fluctuating (usually to the high side) here in the Northeast
United States, this is a rather important cost factor in selecting hardware for some people. So is there a significant cost savings?
Thank you, Dee for taking your valuable time time to respond and please keep providing your well written and informative reviews for us “technically challenged” readers.
