Top Reasons Why You Choose a HDD

At first glance, HDD may look like something that you expect from old school era due to its moving parts. Its "mechanical" body stands in contrast to current digital age. However, there are many great reasons that should help you to decide on whether you should get a HDD. In fact, you may find some of these advantages can fit your preference as well.

Economical

When it comes to buying a HDD, it is obvious that it is certainly more affordable than SSD in the market. This disparity becomes even more visible especially when you compare in terms of dollar per gigabit. Based on a rough estimate, an SSD with a similar storage capacity can be twice as expensive. In fact, it is also one of the reasons why your desktop or laptop computer with SSD storage system is more expensive than the ones that use HDD.

Longer Lifespan

In terms of longevity, HDD is a true winner as it boasts longevity in the read-and-write cycle. As SSD utilizes flash technology, its flash memories can only be used for a finite number of writes. Furthermore, SSD is unable to write any information without firstly erasing and rewriting huge blocks of data at one time. In fact, SSD becomes even more useless when each cell goes through this cycle. Needless to say, SSD will not be very efficient and reliable in the long run. Whatever advantages that you can enjoy from SSD becomes null at the end of the day. This is where HDD boasts a clear advantage over an SSD.

Higher Storage Capacity

One of the best things about HDD is that it usually boasts a higher base capacity than SSD. While storage system comes with different storage capacity, it is always normal to see HDD carry bigger storage capacity. In the case of SSD, you will have limited option if you want to get a bigger base capacity because there is not a lot of them in the market. Even when you can find it, it is way more expensive than a HDD.

For this reason, alone, it is common to find 500GB HDD in computers or external drives. Unsurprisingly, you can also find more desktop and laptop computers that sport 1TB HDD. From year to year, HDD is the one that sets a new standard for storage capacity.

Widely Available

It is not that hard for you to get and buy your HDD because there are lots of them in the market. If you want to upgrade your computer or get an external HDD, you will find more convenient and easier to look for HDD. As for SSDs, they are harder to find in the past. Since more devices start to adopt SSD, they become more popular these days. However, SSDs are unable to compete with HDDs in terms of availability. For external data backup, you can take a look at external HDD.
