SD Card or SDD HD Tags: Hard Drives Sd Card HD Storage Last response: August 13, 2010 6:49 PM in Storage Share bsheets84 August 13, 2010 6:19:32 PM Just curious, is there a major difference between using a SD Card vs SDD drive specifically made to be a HD as a boot drive. is the SD card's access time going to be significantly faster than a regular mechanical hard drive? obviously more stable. I'm just trying to figure out the cheapest route for a flash hard drive for my own curiosity. and if need be for saving space.
