Is an SSD faster than a standard rotationg SATA ?Some are faster whilst others are slower. The "mechanical" HDD brigade
The jargon is hard to get past. I get the impression that
the SSD is just small and low power, rather than fast.
have upped their game though.
Power wise, there's not a lot in it.
I'd wait another 6 months as it's a new technology and improvements are
being made all the time.
Maximum PC magazine just did a review of several SSDs. The short version
is that there are 2 major versions right now: SLD and MLD (Single- and
Multi-Level Device) flash RAM chips. The SLD are "good" and the MLD are
"cheaper." The cheaper MLD devices are WAY too slow on writes to replace a
"performance" HDD. The SLD devices are comparable in performance to HDDs,
but $800+ for the current 64 GB variety.
