A Solid State Disk (SSD) is a storage device that is based on semiconductors rather than rotating magnetic platters. Most SSDs, including Super Talent's offerings, are based on NAND Flash chips because they are fast, highly reliable, widely available and are non-volatile. SSDs are 100% compatible with standard hard disk drives, using both industry standard dimensions and a standard hard drive interface. While typical spinning HDDs are the weakest point when it comes to withstanding extremes, an SSD drive is an asset. Along with its durability and reliability, the SSD brings unparalleled performance.
