When it comes to data storage devices, solid-state disks (or, SSDs) were supposed to be the next big thing after traditional, spinning hard drive disks (or, HDDs). With no moving parts, SSDs are largely immune to crashes caused by mechanical failure and extended use. They also are nearly noiseless and are a lot faster than HDDs in terms of data retrieval and startup time.
But thanks to all the high-end circuitry, SSDs are expensive and store less data than HDDs. SSDs also can access data more quickly than HDDs but they cannot write data as quickly. And while SSDs are less prone to crashing from mechanical failure, they are highly prone to electrical failure. And once they burn out, they are gone for good.
According to a February, 2012, article by ComputerWorld, “as NAND flash densities increase, so do…
