External Solid State Drives


For a long time, storage has been traditionally coming from a spinning hard drive. But with technological advancements, it has since evolved into what we call solid state drives or SSDs.

SSDs are nonvolatile storage devices that stash away data on interconnected solid-state flash memory chips, which are able to retain data even if no power is present.

Compared to HDDs, SSDs are faster, as it can be 25 to 100 times faster because of its lack of mechanical parts and negligible fragmentation of data.

As a result, this leads to faster boot times, quicker file transfers, and greater bandwidth for enterprise computing. In addition, said lack of moving parts yields less power consumption, which makes it less susceptible to overheating.

An additional perk for SSD usage is that it is quietly-run operation.

Initially, SSDs were tailored for the desktop and then laptops, but with the development of components that can go with the mSATA interface, there is an increasing prevalence for external SSDs.

Considering that with the lack of moving parts, it is less susceptible to data loss and device breakdown due to drops, it makes perfect sense to be used externally. This strength is reinforced by having an enclosure that can handle the external elements, as well as the normal rigors of travel.

These kinds of drives are computer-agnostic, which makes them compatible to virtually any computer regardless of operating system, provided one has the available connection. Most have USB 3.0 accessibility, but some already have Thunderbolt connectivity, which has a faster interface than a USB.

MacMall is offering differing kinds of external SSDs, with varying storage capacities from different manufacturers, including the likes of Apricorn, Kanguru Solutions, and even Samsung. Order yours today and avail great deals and more!
