Here you can see a detailed comparison of SSD and HDD. It’s now up to you which one is fitted for your everyday use.
SSD VS HDD
|Access Time:||Access speeds of 35 to 100 microseconds, nearly 100 x faster. Programs run more quickly||Approx 5000 to 10,000 microseconds|
|More. Generally for additional storage||Much cheaper|
|No moving parts. Flash memory to store data, provides an increase in performance and reliability||Moving parts and magnetic platters. The more use they get, the faster they wear and fail|
|Anything over 512GB, beyond price range||Reasonable prices for several terabytes|
|Uses less power, over time, lower energy bill. Increases laptop battery life.||More power used, due to all parts and requirements to spin the platters|
|No moving parts = no noise||Loudest component in computer, often due to the spinning|
|Available in 2.5, 1.8 and 1.0, increases the available space||Usually 3.5 and 2.5, no options for any smaller|
|No moving parts = less heat, helps increase lifespan and reliability||Heat due to moving parts. Heat slowly does damage|
