We all are aware about the advantages of SSD, but then due to the price it was always the second choice of the users. HDD always was preferred over SSD not for the features that it provides but for the only reason that it was and still is cheaper. But things are changing with the times and now laptops are introducing SSD to make them light in weight. Another benefit of the SSD is that your laptop will start in few seconds now. Earlier, we all know how much time our computer used to take to start and it was all due to the presence of HDD. SDD was in use for a long time, but it was mainly used in medical or military or aeronautical field, but in 2007 they ventured into the consumer space and from then on it has been a long journey. They have been developed in order to ensure that they fit the budget too. Strontium is one name which is trying to reach out to users with their SSD drive at a reasonable range of $200.

If you want to speed up the operation or reduce the blowing noise that your HDD makes then this 2.5 inch portable SSD will help you out. In order to make improve performance 19nm Multi Level Cell NAND Flash has been put to use. It can also read and write sequentially without any problem instead the speed that it offers is something you will enjoy while working.

Therefore, it is not restricting itself to one category only instead it is trying to reach out to most users be it computer user or the laptop user or the tablet users.
